Positions Available

We are currently hiring for 4 Research Assistant posts. Deadline is the 23rd January. See here for details and how to apply.

We are also looking for Research Interns, to work with us for 3 months to one year. Start date can be from 15 Jan 2018, and a stipend covering local living expenses will be provided. See here for details and how to apply.

Expressions of interest for summer projects for next year are also welcome.

Our team includes 10 scientists based in the UK (all but one in Cambridge), including both research assistants and associates. Our newest group members are joining us this summer. We also have 3 undergraduate students doing a summer project with us.

The posts in the group 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.

One post-doctoral level post in the group is based jointly in Oxford/Cambridge to provide a link to the experimental lab of Scott Waddell and give scientific direction to projects that would have particular impact on that lab's experimental work.
