Your mission

The successful candidate should show a high level of responsibility and independency, be able to collaborate with others in a team, good communication skills (English speaking and writing), and be willing to supervise students. Successful candidates should have a strong neuroscience background with documented experience in electrophysiology and/or imaging.

This eligibility requirement must be fulfilled at the latest at the time of the employment decision. It is considered as an advantage if you have completed your doctoral degree within the last three years, if there are special reasons, your degree may have been completed earlier.
