Are you interested in Neurosciences Cognitive Research? Here is the chance to join Dr. Robert Ohlendorf's research group as a Postdoctoral or a Ph.D. student. This lab is positioned at the Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics.
The laboratory engages in bioengineering and in-vivo imaging to understand molecular signaling that underlies mammalian brain function. In addition, the institute conducts research into the interpretation of cognitive processes in experimental, theoretical, and methodological areas and is part of the Max Planck Society.
About the position:
The selected candidate would have the prospect of developing protein-based and genetic tools for measuring and controlling molecular processes and applying them to study their interplay on a brain-wide level in real-time using optical, ultrasound, and magnetic resonance imaging. The varied approach inspires researchers with different backgrounds to collaborate and develop their abilities to bridge molecular, cellular, and organismal levels.
