Postdoctoral Neuroscientist

Applications for this vacancy closed on 10 June 2015 at 12:00PM
We seek a Postdoctoral Neuroscientist to develop, execute and analyse state-
of-the-art electrophysiological and behavioural experiments in rodents as part
of a scientific programme designed to develop closed-loop electrical
stimulation for the treatment of Parkinson’s disease using rodent models.
Interested candidates should ideally hold a PhD or equivalent qualification
(or MD) in a relevant area of biological research, and should have a promising
track record in original research in their particular field of neuroscience.
Candidates are expected to have advanced technical expertise in
programming/data analysis and general expertise in neurophysiology and/or
rodent behavioural training. They should have evidence of designing and
completing high quality research as part of a cohesive programme.

The postholder will be part of the Sharott Group based at the MRC Brain
Network Dynamics Unit, Department of Pharmacology. The group uses a
multidisciplinary approach to elucidate the mechanisms underlying dysfunction
of the basal ganglia circuits in neurological and neuropsychiatric disorders.
We will apply innovative electrophysiological techniques to study the
pathophysiology of these circuits in vivo and to restore function using
closed-loop electrical stimulation. The post will be embedded in a wider
programme to develop these technologies in experimental models and translate
them to therapies in patients. The proposed research will take full advantage
of the intellectual environment, capital equipment, technical expertise and
excellent infrastructure in place in the unit, and there will be ample
opportunity to work in partnership with other unit groups.

Informal enquiries can be addressed to Dr Andrew Sharott:
andrew.sharott@pharm.ox.ac.uk.

This post is fixed-term for 4 years, funded by the Medical Research Council.

The closing date for applications is 12.00 noon on Wednesday 10 June 2015.
