updated 21.02.2018


Our lab ( is looking for highly motivated people 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 ancestral cortico-limbic structures in zebrafish brain and their role in learning and memory. To achieve this goal, she/he will use a combination of optical, electrophysiological, optogenetic, behavioural, molecular, applied mathematical and engineering tools.


We are looking of post-doctoral fellow, who has strong expertise in 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.



  • PhD in a relevant field, e.g. neuroscience, physics, mathematics, biology
  • Strong experience in calcium imaging, microscopy, electrophysiology and programming (MATLAB and/or C)
  • Proven track record with high quality publications


Candidate can start as soon as possible
