University of Cambridge - Department of Zoology

Cambridge, United Kingdom

An opportunity is available for a Postdoctoral Research Associate to undertake research aimed at understanding the circuit mechanisms of learning and decision-making to join the Circuits Neuroscience Group of Dr Marta Zlatic in the Department of Zoology at the University of Cambridge. The purpose of the role is to investigate the circuit basis of learning and decision-making. The Zlatic Group's research programme is to discover the basic principles by which neural circuits implement fundamental computations with the specific focus on the circuit implementation of learning and decision-making.

We are looking for a motivated and skilled individual who will thrive in a highly collaborative and supportive research group. Prior experience in at least one of the following is required: two-photon imaging of neural activity, electrophysiology, patch clamp recording, intracellular recording of neural activity, or performing learning and decision-making assays in Drosophila or other animals. Good data analysis skills and basic programming skills are desirable.

Essential Criteria:

  • PhD in a relevant subject such as neuroscience;
  • Good understanding of neuroscience;
  • Strong desire to understand circuit basis of brain function and behaviour;
  • Proven ability to analyse and write scientific results;
