A postdoctoral research post in the laboratory of Johannes Kohl is now available. The Kohl laboratory investigates the neuronal and circuit mechanisms by which physiological states affect information processing in the brain.
We are currently looking for a highly motivated and creative researcher to investigate how changes in physiological state affect the function of brain-wide neural circuits in mice. This research builds on previous work that has identified brain-wide circuits for parental behaviour (Kohl et al., 2018, Nature; Kohl et al., 2018, Curr Op Neurobiol).
The successful applicant will use in vivo electrophysiology and calcium imaging, behavioural profiling and other state-of-the-art approaches in systems neuroscience. For more information about this research, please visit kohl-lab.org. The successful applicant will have excellent quantitative and organisational skills and a PhD in a relevant area (or be in the final stages of completion).
This position provides a unique opportunity to combine cutting edge approaches in circuit and behavioural neuroscience. We are especially keen to recruit a candidate with a background and expertise in in vivo recordings and strong quantitative skills. Please direct informal enquiries at Dr Kohl (email@example.com). The successful applicant will work closely with Dr Kohl and the existing neurophysiology community at the Crick and will benefit from our in-house career development and mentoring schemes.
The laboratory is housed in The Francis Crick Institute, a dynamic research environment with exceptional resources and core facilities in one of the most exciting scientific hubs in the world.
The Francis Crick Institute is a biomedical discovery institute dedicated to understanding the fundamental biology underlying health and disease. Its work is helping to understand why disease develops and to translate discoveries into new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat illnesses such as cancer, heart disease, stroke, infections, and neurodegenerative diseases.
An independent organisation, its founding partners are the Medical Research Council (MRC), Cancer Research UK, Wellcome, UCL (University College London), Imperial College London and King’s College London.
The Crick was formed in 2015, and in 2016 it moved into a new state-of-the-art building in central London which brings together 1500 scientists and support staff working collaboratively across disciplines, making it the biggest biomedical research facility in one building in Europe.
