Are you fascinated by the mental capacities of primates? Would you like to reveal the cellular basis of working memory? If the answers are yes and you are an experienced patch clamp electrophysiologist, apply for our postdoc position and become a member of our Neuronex team NXWM! In a DFG-funded project, we offer the position of a Postdoc (TVL-E13; 3 years + 2 years optional) concerned with the detailed analysis of microcircuits in a highly organized basic module of the cortex, i.e. the column. For this exciting endeavour to define the connectivity motifs of GABAergic interneurons in macaques in vitro, we will first establish patch-seq in mouse and then move on to primate tissue, in collaboration with the German Primate Center (DPZ). The successful candidate must have a background in slice patch clamp electrophysiology. It will be advantageous to have Neurolucida reconstruction capabilities or experience with single cell-RNAseq. We expect a good deal of problem solving capacity and a strong enthusiasm for neuroscience. We are a young and dynamic research group with very good infrastructure at the excellent neuroscience research spot “Göttingen Campus”. PIs of this project are Drs. Andreas Neef and Jochen Staiger.
