2 years initially with potential extension to 5 years
We seek a passionate, self-motivated scientist to undertake the project “Action in Vision” aimed at understanding how motor actions affect visual processing. The successful candidate will have an established track record in computational biology, up-to-date programming skills and a strong passion for system neuroscience. Previous experiences in performing and/or analysing electrophysiological and behavioural data or in computer vision are desirable. The successful candidate will work with high density electrophysiological data from freely moving mice [1] and three-dimensional reconstruction of their natural behaviours [2]. The successful candidate will also be involved in the designing of the experiments. The post offers a great opportunity to work in an exciting field of neuroscience aimed at understanding sensory processing in natural unrestricted conditions. At the University of Manchester the successful candidates will find themselves immersed in a collaborative, friendly and multidisciplinary environment with several labs working on fundamental research on sensory processing (vision, touch), memory and behaviour. The post, starting in January 2021, is for 2 years and potentially renewable for up to a total of 5 years.
