Research Fellow (Margrie Laboratory)

UCL - Sainsbury Wellcome Centre (SWC)

The Sainsbury Wellcome Centre (SWC) commenced research operations in Spring 2016 bringing together world-leading scientists to investigate how brain circuits process information to generate perception, form memories and guide behaviour. Developed through the vision and partnership of the Gatsby Charitable Foundation and Wellcome, and with substantial investment from these partners, the mission of the SWC is to generate experimentally testable theories of brain function.

The Margrie laboratory is looking for an outstanding Research Fellow to work on a project entitled: 'Functional properties of circuits involved in ego- versus allocentric based navigation.'

This is an exciting opportunity to work in a highly collaborative and multidisciplinary environment. You will be responsible for organising training and dissemination workshops for new technology, setting up and maintaining experimental equipment as well as writing and contributing to scientific reports, presentations and experimental records.

The post is funded until 01 June 2025 in the first instance.
