Duties and Responsibilities
Applications are invited for postdoctoral research positions with Dr Francesca Cacucci and her group in the Institute of Behavioural Neuroscience, at University College London. Our research focuses on the role of the hippocampus in memory and spatial cognition.

Applicants must have a PhD in relevant subject area. We are looking for highly motivated scientists with an excellent track record in in vivo neuronal recording. Knowledge of the hippocampus and its role in memory and spatial cognition, developmental neuroscience, computer programming (e.g. Matlab), and experience of whole cell recording and/or optogenetic techniques would also be desirable.
