The Functional Neuroimaging Laboratory, at Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia, Rovereto, Italy, is seeking postdoctoral researchers interested in studying the neural basis of connectivity disruption in brain disorders.
Our research, funded by the European Research Council (ERC - project “DisConn”), is aimed at identifying the general neural and cellular principles governing the assembly of spontaneous neural activity, and its breakdown in developmental disorders.
We address these questions at the level of identified cell types by combining cutting-edge functional MRI methods with neural manipulations in the living mouse.
This research sits at the intersection of computational neuroscience, neurobiology and neuroimaging.
The successful candidate will have a PhD in neuroscience, biotechnology, computer science, physics, or equivalent.
Training in experimental neuroscience is desirable, but not mandatory.
The IIT center in Rovereto (http://cncs.iit.it/) is actively expanding its infrastructure and space for system-level neuroscience research. The center is inserted both in the vibrant community of the IIT (http://www.iit.it) and of the CIMeC center of the University of Trento (http://www.cimec.unitn.it), which specializes in cognitive neuroscience. Rovereto is conveniently located near Trento and Verona, two of the most important “Citta d’Arte” in Italy. The Trentino area is a region of Northern Italy nestled in the Dolomite Mountains, offering spectacular natural beauty, vibrant culture and exceptional quality of life.
Please send your application (full CV, research statement, and names of 2 referees) by email to email@example.com. Applications will be examined until the positions are filled.
