Postdoctoral, PhD, and Master Student Positions in Systems Neuroscience

The Brain & Sound Lab is seeking ambitious, smart and self-driven scientists for open research positions at the postdoc, PhD, and master student levels.
Level of employment: 100%
Start date: Fall 2021.
Location: Basel University, Switzerland.

Your position

The projects have the broad goal of better understanding the neuronal circuits for auditory processing and perception, and include both experiments and data analysis. The successful candidates will have the opportunity to learn and apply several state-of-the-art systems neuroscience techniques such as in vivo extracellular recordings, functional imaging (2P calcium or voltage imaging), behavioral assays, optogenetics, in vivo patch-clamp recordings, viral neural tracing, or immunohistochemistry. The research questions will be chosen from a range of topics in auditory systems neuroscience. For more information about the specific projects at the different levels, please contact Tania Barkat (

Your profile

You are our new lab member if you:

  • have a background in neuroscience, physics, computer science, mathematics, biology, or engineering
  • have a spirit of intellectual adventure as well as drive and eagerness
  • can be creative and focused on a project at the same time
  • have experience or interest in programming data analysis code
  • run experiments methodically and are adept at troubleshooting and problem solving
  • ambition to pursue a career in science
  • enjoy working in a team and like to share ideas with colleagues.

We offer you

We offer attractive employment conditions in an intellectually stimulating environment and a scientifically and culturally rich city. The contract length is adapted to the position.
Our lab aims to understand the role of neural circuits in making sense of sounds. We use a systems neuroscience approach and combine in vivo electrophysiology, functional imaging, behavioral assays, and optogenetics to explore the functions of neuronal circuits in the mouse central auditory system.
