For more information and to apply please see https://bit.ly/2Miqxde
University College London is looking to appoint a dedicated research fellow for a collaborative and highly interdisciplinary research project between the Busche and the Sala Frigerio labs at UCL DRI. The Busche group (http://www.buschelab.com) has a unique expertise in multiphoton calcium imaging of large neuronal populations in the intact brain in vivo and the Sala Frigerio group is experienced in single cell genomics analysis and spatially-resolved transcriptomics. The post holder will carry out groundbreaking work combining these two approaches in animal models of dementia.
The successful candidate must hold a Ph.D. or equivalent in neuroscience or a neuroscience-related or quantitative discipline (e.g., physics, engineering). Applicants must have strong backgrounds in computational biology, knowledge of statistical analysis methods and a track record of writing and publishing high-quality scientific articles.
Proficiency in relevant programming languages (e.g. MATLAB, Python, R) with regard to analyzing imaging and/or electrophysiological data, and excellent interpersonal skills and cooperation within a multidisciplinary team are also required.
Experience in the analysis of next generation sequencing data, including single cell RNAseq data, and with in vivo two-photon calcium imaging and/or electrophysiology and related surgical approaches is desirable.
