The University of Oslo is Norway's oldest and highest rated institution of research and education with 28 000 students and 7000 employees. Its broad range of academic disciplines and internationally esteemed research communities make UiO an important contributor to society.
Department of Biosciences (IBV) is a research and education department at the University of Oslo. The Department has one Centre of Excellence and four research sections. The Department has 52 faculty members and associate professors, and approximately 190 PhD students, post docs and researchers, in addition to technical and administrative staff. The working environment is international, and scientists from over 30 countries contribute to the working environment. The Department aims to maintain high international standards both within research and teaching.IBV offers research-based education within several aspects of bioscience, including ecology, behavioural ecology, evolution, physiology, microbiology, biochemistry, biomedicine, genetics, bioinformatics and biotechnology. Around 380 students are enrolled in bachelor's programs, and 90 in master's programs.Jobbnorge ID: 140845
Position as postdoctoral research fellow available at the Department of Biosciences and in the research group of Associate Professor Marianne Fyhn at the Center for Integrated Neuroplasticity (CINPLA).
The fellowship period is three years. Within the framework of the position duties may be assigned. Anticipated start date no later than 01.10.2017. No one can be appointed for more than one Postdoctoral Research Fellowship at the University of Oslo.
In our laboratory we study neural processing and plasticity of neural circuits at multiple levels, from the morphological changes at the synapse to functional changes of network activity in behaving animals. The aim of the present project is to identify cell-specific and molecular contributions to information processing underlying complex behaviors. To achieve this, the candidate will use in vivo electrophysiology and multiphoton imaging in combination with genetic perturbations such as optogenetics. These experimental tasks will be coupled with parallel projects developing computational models at the single neuron and network levels. Thus, the project relies heavily on interdisciplinary principles and involves strong interaction between experimental neuroscience and mathematical modelling. As such, the successful candidate will work with both experimental and computational neuroscience research groups at Simula Research Laboratory and the University of Oslo (www.mn.uio.no/ibv/english/research/sections/fyscell/cinpla).
The Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences has a strategic ambition of being a leading research faculty. Candidates for these fellowships will be selected in accordance with this, and expected to be in the upper segment of their class with respect to academic credentials.
The candidate must have a PhD or other corresponding education equivalent to a Norwegian doctoral degree in Physiology, Neurobiology or similar field. The preferred candidate will have experience in experimental physiology, preferably from in vivo electrophysiology or imaging (e.g., multiphoton microscopy), in combination with behavior studies. Due to the interdisciplinary nature of the project, the candidate should also have experience with or a strong interest in computational neuroscience.
The research fellow should be able to work independently and structured, while at the same time engage in close collaborations.
English is the working language at both CINPLA
