The School of Life Sciences at the University of Sussex is at the forefront of research in the UK. In the recent Research Excellence Framework assessment (REF 2021), 100% of our Impact cases in Biological Sciences and Chemistry were rated as world-leading or internationally excellent. The School has received substantial recent University investment and is embarking on an exciting and extensive, muti-million pound refurbishment and improvement project.
A Research Fellow position is available in the laboratory of Tom Baden to work on establishing expression of fluorescent reporters of neural activity in avian retina using viruses.
We will adapt the adeno-associated viral (AAV) vector approach (widely used in mammalian studies) to express calcium indicators in bird retinal neurons. It will be followed by 2-photon imaging and recording from neurons in isolated avian retina.
The project will involve both experiments and computer-based analysis.
We are a very active research group located in the Neuroscience Centre, which also houses a number of other groups using imaging to study neural circuits involved in sensory processing (http://www.sussex.ac.uk/sussexneuroscience/).
More about the laboratory and our previous work can be found at https://badenlab.org. Informal enquiries are encouraged and should be made to Tom Baden (email@example.com).
The University of Sussex values the diversity of its staff and students and we welcome applicants from all backgrounds
