The Department of Systems Neuroscience (Head: Prof. Dr. Siegrid Löwel) at Göttingen University, Germany

seeks highly motivated

PhD-students in Systems Neuroscience

interested in cortical plasticity. The Löwel-lab investigates sensory processing and neuronal plasticity in the visual cortex of mice with modified synaptic proteins. Techniques include 2-photon calcium imaging, optical imaging of intrinsic signals, electrophysiology and diverse behavioural tests to analyze learning in the same animals.
We offer a stimulating scientific environment in a dynamic, young and interdisciplinary team and state-of-the-art facilities. We guarantee extensive and individual training. The successful candidate should have experience in 2-photon calcium imaging and/or multi-electrode electrophysiology in vivo, preferably with programming skills. Enthusiasm and fundamental interest in basic and applied neuroscience research is a must.

The University of Göttingen is an equal opportunity employer. Qualified females are particularly encouraged to apply.

Please send your applications as early as possible (incl. CV and at least 2 letters of reference) to:

Studentische Hilfskraft/programmer for software development with MATLAB

The Department of Systems Neuroscience (Head: Prof. Dr. Siegrid Löwel) is seeking an experienced programmer/Studentische Hilfskraft (m/f) for support with software development (data acquisition and analyses of electrophysiological experiments).

Your task will be to extend and modify existing custom-made Matlab codes for more advanced data recording and analysis (multichannel systems, multisite microelectrodes).

Required qualifications are solid knowledge and extensive experience in programming with Matlab, in particular with data handling. Preferably the successful candidate should have experience with software analyzing extracellular, electrophysiological data using template matching and Bayesian sorting algorithms.

Please send your application or questions to:
