Positions open

POSTDOCTORAL POSITION IN NEUROPHYSIOLOGY / MULTIPHOTON MICROSCOPY

An internationally funded (ERC Advanced Grant) postdoctoral position is available for up to five years in the laboratory of Gabor Tamas to investigate the function of GABAergic interneurons and mechanisms of information flow in microcircuits of the cerebral cortex with the opportunity to work on human samples (Nature, 461, 1278-1281; Science 311, 233-235.; Science, 299, 1902-1905). The position is open immediately, but startup can be delayed. Candidates are expected to have experience in any of the following areas: a) in vivo recordings b) imaging neurons or microcircuits c) patch clamp techniques d) multiphoton microscopy. Applicants should send CV and contact information of a previous supervisor to Gabor Tamas (gtamas@bio.u-szeged.hu, www.tamaslab.org).

POSTDOCTORAL POSITION IN FUNCTIONAL GENOMICS OF NEURONS

An internationally funded (ERC Advanced) postdoctoral position is available for up to five years in the laboratory of Gabor Tamas to investigate the functional genomics of identified GABAergic interneurons in microcircuits of the cerebral cortex with the opportunity to work on human samples (Nature, 461, 1278-1281; Science 311, 233-235.; Science, 299, 1902-1905). The position is open immediately, but startup can be delayed. Candidates are expected to have experience in any of the following areas: a) single cell PCR b) global gene expression profiling. Applicants should send CV and contact information of a previous supervisor to Gabor Tamas (gtamas@bio.u-szeged.hu, www.tamaslab.org).

PHD STUDENTSHIPS

International students are wellcome to join the laboratory with sufficient funding for tuition and living expenses. Neurophysiology students will be trained on state of the art quadruple patch clamp setups combined with various single and multiphoton imaging methods. Molecular neuroanatomy students will contribute to the functional genomic analysis of identified GABAergic neurons of the cerebral cortex combining global gene expression profiling of neurons with electrophysiology and light and electron microscopic immunoicytochemistry. Applications from students without geographical restrictions having and MSc or equivalent in biology, medicine, biophysics, computer sciences and physics are welcome to join the projects outlined above. Please send CV and contact infomation of a previous supervisor to Gabor Tamas (gtamas@bio.u-szeged.hu, www.tamaslab.org).
