Join the lab

We are interested in recruiting passionate researchers to work in the neuronal circuits of reward and aversion.

Experience in any of the following techniques is a plus:
– computational neuroscience
– calcium imaging (miniscopes or photometry)
in vivo electrophysiology
– optogenetics/chemogenetics
– single cell RNAseq
– neuronal circuit anatomical characterisation

Your ideas count, so all of our projects are flexible and open to discussion. We promote intellectual freedom, thus the candidate has the opportunity to supervise Msc/PhD students and apply for independent funding. We expect that the candidate has good problem-solving skills, with a constructive and positive attitude, and capable of working individually but also as part of a team.

We have a collaborative and open lab environment, and diversity is welcome. Our lab is located in a dynamic biomedical institute, in the north of Portugal, a vibrant region with excellent food, wine and friendly people.

How to apply
Please send your CV, name and email of 3 references, together with a motivation letter briefly explaining your research interests by email to Ana João Rodrigues.
