Two PhD studentships in circuit and behavioural neuroscience at the Mediterranean Institute of Neurobiology (INMED), Marseille, France


The focus of the lab is exploring the interactions between internal models and sensory information. Specifically, we study how long-range connections steer activity in the visual cortices using electrophysiology (Galloni et al. 2020), viral tracing, optogenetics (Galloni et al. 2021), in vivo recordings and behaviour. The studentships are fully funded for 3 years by an A*Midex grant. Neuroscience research in Marseille is broad, diverse, and therefore very fertile. INMED offers state-of-the-art research platforms and a collaborative scientific environment. The city of Marseille is a unique gem in the heart of the Mediterranean, culturally diverse and surrounded by magnificent nature.


Candidates should have strong neuroscience or quantitative science background, ideally with hands-on experience in animal experimentation or advanced data science proficiency.
