Based in the Institute of Neuroscience at Newcastle University (United Kingdom), you will work in Dr Demetris Soteropoulos’s lab, investigating the contribution of spinal commissural circuits to voluntary movements using electrophysiological and genetic techniques. You will be responsible for the day-to-day running of this project. You will be involved in the behavioural training of animals and in implant surgeries, and carry out recordings during behaviour. You will carry out data analysis, and then prepare publication quality figures and the first draft of manuscripts.
Prior experience in primate neuroscience would be an advantage but is not required. A PhD is essential and prior knowledge of motor systems neuroscience, as well as good computational and quantitative skills would be highly advantageous.
Excellent team skills are required, and a strong commitment to animal welfare and 3Rs.
