Research Assistant

We are looking for a skilled in-vivo systems neuroscientist to join a research team led by Professor Richard Apps and Professor Bridget Lumb investigating the role of the cerebellum in co-ordinating motor responses arising from the midbrain periaqueductal grey.

The main role of the post will be to use chronic recording methods in the cerebellum in combination with conditioning to study changes in transmission in sensorimotor pathways in a behavioural model in which the PAG is known to be active.

The postdoctoral position is funded by the BBSRC until March 2013, with the possibility of a further extension. You must have a PhD (awarded or imminent), and also expertise in chronic recording techniques applied to the cerebellum. If successful, you may be appointed either on a fixed term or a permanent contract depending on the extent of your previous relevant research experience. Further information can be found at

For informal enquiries please contact Professor R Apps on +44 (0) 117 331 2264 or e-mail eval(unescape('%64%6f%63%75%6d%65%6e%74%2e%77%72%69%74%65%28%27%3c%61%20%68%72%65%66%3d%22%6d%61%69%6c%74%6f%3a%72%2e%61%70%70%73%40%62%72%69%73%74%6f%6c%2e%61%63%2e%75%6b%22%3e%72%2e%61%70%70%73%40%62%72%69%73%74%6f%6c%2e%61%63%2e%75%6b%3c%2f%61%3e%27%29%3b'))
