Open position

We are looking for a talented young neuroscientist with proven skills in in vivo electrophysiology during behavior (rodents or monkey).

The project regards the circuit underpinnings of cognition and employs a combination of optogenetics in conjunction with chronic recordings and brain wide tracing of circuits using rabies. The project centers around the role of inhibition and different types of inhibitory interneurons in higher mental processes, with a special emphasis on computations in prefrontal cortex (PFC) and areas interacting with PFC. As all work in the lab the project has relevance for the understanding of changed cognition in psychiatry.

The successful candidate has:

  • PhD in Neuroscience / Computer Science / Systems Engineering, or related field
  • Extensive experience of chronic in vivo recordings during behavior (rodent or monkey)
  • Excellent programming skills
  • A record of scientific publications consistent with her/his career stage (at least one first name publication in relevant field)
  • Experience in optogenetics is meriting.

Interested applicants are invited to please send by email to Marie Carlén ( :

i) Cover letter

ii) CV

iii) Name and full contact information of 3 references ready to submit reference letters upon request.

Please note that only short-listed applicants will receive notice.
