Positions Available


We are always looking for creative and motivated postdocs, graduate and undergraduate students to join our team. Please contact Jérémie Barral and see below for specific requirements.


Postdoc / PhD

The lab is looking for a motivated postdoc or PhD student to study information processing in the mice auditory system using tools including 2-photon stimulation, optogenetics, multielectrode array recordings, and computational analyses. Our goal is to develop a 2-photon patterned stimulation microscope to stimulate hair cells optogenetically in vivo. Successful candidates will help design and execute a research program aimed at understanding how sound information is propagated along the auditory pathway.

The postdoc position is initially for 1 year but can be extended for up to 4 years. The candidate is also expected to apply for alternative funding sources.

Funding for a PhD position is available now.

We encourage women and minorities to apply. Both French and international candidates are welcome.

Start date:

Late 2020 until position is filled.

Requirements:

We are looking for individuals who want to study neural coding in the context of hearing and who meet the following criteria:

1) Ph.D. or MSc in neuroscience, biophysics, engineering or related field.

2) Experience in at least two the following areas: in vivo electrophysiology, 2-photon imaging, optogenetics, microscopy.

3) Enthusiasm, curiosity, ambition, and happy to work in a team.

Please send a brief letter of interest describing how your current experience, skills, and future goals align with this position, along with a C.V. and contact information of two potential references to Jérémie Barral.


Engineer

We are hiring a research engineer to help set up a state-of-the-art neuroscience laboratory. Successful candidates will interface with team members to provide technical and general research support and to help with building experimental setups, running in vivo experiments, managing mouse colonies, and providing general lab management.

We encourage women and minorities to apply. Both French and international candidates are welcome.

Start date:

Spring 2021

Requirements:

We are looking for individuals who want hands-on experience and who want to study neural coding in the brain:

1) B.S. in neuroscience, computer science, engineering or related field.

2) A commitment of 2 years.

3) Preferred qualifications:

- Previous research experience

- Electronics and software development (Matlab, Labview)
