The present project plans to utilize mouse models of Parkinson’s to develop new behavioral assays that can test for sensorimotor hallucinations (and other cognitive and sensorimotor deficits). This work will utilize cutting-edge machine vision, robotics, neural recordings (neuropixel, large scale imaging) and novel behavioral paradigms available at the Mathis Lab.
The successful candidate will work in the Mathis Lab at Campus Biotech (http://www.mackenziemathislab.org) and will be co-supervised jointly by Mackenzie Mathis and Olaf Blanke (https://www.epfl.ch/labs/lnco/). The ideal candidate should have a PhD in neuroscience, engineering, or computer science and have strong training in systems neuroscience (a background in building rigs, electrophysiology, data analysis, Python and animal behavior). They should also have a strong publication record, be collaborative, an excellent communicator, and be passionate about human and animal neuroscience for translational applications. Applications and inquiries should be sent here: https://forms.gle/nAK86nsLhJFRtGv5A. This will ask you for a CV, publication list, a letter of motivation, and a 3-minute video stating motivations and qualifications.
