The Neurophotonics lab of the School of Optometry of the University of Montreal is looking for postdocs. Our projects focus on the plasticity of cortical maps and functional connectivity in different models of blindness and stroke affecting visual functions. We are also interested in the spatial coding of information in the context of Brain/Machine interfaces and the development of neuroprosthesis to restore vision.
We use a platform for measuring and manipulating brain functions in mice performing visual cognitive tasks in combination with neurophotonic approaches such as calcium imaging (macroscopic or multi-photon) or optogenetics.
We are also interested in the development of technologies applied to neuroscience, in collaboration with companies. The support of the lab (CIHR, NSERC) will guarantee a scholarship for trainees who do not yet have the support of funding organizations.
- You must have experience in the field of neurophotonics (such as: calcium imaging, in vivo multiphoton microscopy, optogenetics, etc.)
- You will also need to have experience in data analysis (with Matlab or Python ideally)
- Qualifications in the field of rodent behavioral measurements, computational neuroscience or biomedical engineering (3D design/printing, electronics, etc.) could be an important asset
Send your CV and cover letter (and any other documents you think could be relevant: transcript, achievement, etc.) to Matthieu Vanni: firstname.lastname@example.org
