We are hiring !
Our lab (www.yaksilab.com) is looking for highly motivated people (postdoc or PhD level) who are interested in joining our team at Kavli Institute for Systems Neuroscience at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU). We offer an international and multidisciplinary environment in which creativity and scientific discourse is valued and stimulated.
Our laboratory consists of an international team of enthusiastic biologists, medical doctors and engineers. The overarching goal of our laboratory is to understand how widely dispersed brain regions dynamically interact and how these interactions modulate the way animals process sensory information and make behavioural choices. The successful candidate will be studying the relationship between animals’ behavioural states encoded by ongoing brain activity and alterations in sensory information processing in the cortico-limbic structures of zebrafish brain. We are also interested in understanding the alterations of these circuits during learning and memory formation. To achieve this goal, successful candidates will use a combination of optical, electrophysiological, optogenetic, behavioural, molecular, applied mathematical and engineering tools.
We are looking for highly motivated Postdoc and/or PhD candidates, who has strong interest/experience in learning imaging, electrophysiology and use of computational tools. We are especially interested in people with high motivation in applying their training in neuroscience, maths, physics or engineering in a multi-disciplinary lab. If you are curious, passionate, motivated, creative and a team player, you will be both happy and productive in our laboratory.
