The López-Schier laboratory is looking for PhD and postdoctoral candidates to join a multidisciplinary research project that combines experimental and computational neuroscience. The aim of the project is to understand the neuronal bases of mechanosensory-based spatial navigation, using the zebrafish as experimental system. The project is fully funded and part of a consortium of experimental and theoretical neuroscientists in Germany, France and the USA.

We are looking for outstanding, highly motivated and ambitious candidates with a solid background in physics, engineering, computer science, or theoretical neuroscience, and a genuine interest in animal behaviour. The positions are funded for 3 to 5 years and ideally start in January-March 2020.

You will join a multidisciplinary team at the Helmholtz Zentrum in Neuherberg-Munich, Germany. A good command of the English language is necessary. Other requirements are computer programming skills, and good understanding machine learning and machine vision. Postdoctoral candidates would have received a PhD degree no more than 2 years ago.

The Helmholtz Zentrum München is world-renowned for its fundamental research and is among the top research institutions in the world. Munich is cosmopolitan city with a lively lifestyle and outstanding outdoors.

Candidates must send their application including a brief letter of interest, a complete CV, as well as contact information of two or three academic references to hernan.lopez-schier @ helmholtz-muenchen.de
