We expect to build to a full size team of 8-9 projects scientists based in the UK (all but one in Cambridge) by Spring 2017. We are immediately hiring at the research assistant level (see here for advertisement) with a closing date of 16 September.
These posts are suitable for individuals with a bachelors degree in Neuroscience or another Biological subject or a strong quantitative background (Physical Sciences, Computer Science, Maths, Engineering) and some basic understanding of neuroscience. Full training will be given (some of it may be at Janelia Research Campus in the US) but it would be helpful to have some background in at least one of neural circuits, Drosophila, programming/image analysis. You will have the opportunity to help define your specific research directions, to present your work at conferences and contribute to scientific papers. You should have good communication and team-working skills and above all be strongly motivated to understand the circuit basis of brain function and behaviour.
