The Department of Systems Neuroscience at the Georg-August-Universität Göttingen (Head: Prof. Dr. Siegrid Löwel) invites applications for a position as

PhD-student in Systems Neuroscience (all genders welcome)


This position provides the opportunity to obtain one's doctorate. This is a part time position with a limited contract of 3 years and the possibility of extension. Salary and working hours will be according to the German grade 13 TV-L (65 %, currently 25.87 hours per week).

Candidates with experience in 2-photon imaging and/or multielectrode electrophysiology in vivo and sound programming skills (e.g. Matlab) are preferred. Enthusiasm and fundamental interest in basic neuroscience research is a must. The Löwel-lab investigates sensory processing and neuronal plasticity in the visual cortex of mice raised in varying environments and/or with modified synaptic proteins. Techniques include 2-photon calcium and spine imaging, optical imaging of intrinsic signals, multielectrode electrophysiology, virus injections and diverse behavioural tests to analyze visual plasticity and learning. We offer a stimulating scientific environment in a dynamic, young and interdisciplinary and international team and state-of-the-art facilities. We guarantee extensive and individual training. The ideal applicant should hold a Master in Neuroscience/computational neuroscience or equivalent.

The Göttingen Campus is a leading center of neuroscience in Europe hosting numerous internationally renowned research institutions, including the University and its Medical Center, the three life science Max Planck Institutes, the European Neuroscience Institute, the German Primate Center, and the Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience (BCCN) Göttingen.

The University of Göttingen is an equal opportunities employer and places particular emphasis on fostering career opportunities for women. Qualified women are therefore strongly encouraged to apply in fields in which they are underrepresented. The university has committed itself to being a family-friendly institution and supports their employees in balancing work and family life.
