PhD Position

PhD Positions in Systems Neuroscience – University of Geneva

We have several openings for PhD students interested in studying the role of frontal cortex in the motor control and skill learning. Students will learn how to use the latest two-photon imaging tools together with optogenetic manipulations in behaving mice to dissect the neuronal circuits involved in voluntary movements and motor learning. Candidates with a master’s degree in biology or related fields such as engineering, mathematics or physics are encouraged to apply. Excellent programming skills, steady hands, and a strong analytical background are essential.  Successful candidates will join the local neuroscience graduate program organized by the University of Geneva, the University of Lausanne and the EPFL. This program offers an excellent choice of practical and theoretical courses covering topics ranging from behavioral neuroscience to molecular, cellular, cognitive, and computational neuroscience (
