The Functional Neuroimaging Research Line (https://www.iit.it/research/lines/functional-neuroimaging ), at Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (IIT) in Rovereto, Italy, is seeking postdoctoral researchers interested in studying the neural basis of connectivity disruption in brain disorders.
The candidate will work in the framework of the ERC project ‘Neural drivers of functional disconnectivity in brain disorders’ (DisConn)- Grant Agreement currently under negotiation
Our research, is aimed at identifying the general neural and cellular principles governing the assembly of spontaneous neural activity, and its breakdown in developmental disorders. We address these questions at the level of identified cell types by combining neural manipulations with cutting-edge functional MRI methods. For reference to recent work please see Bertero et al; Brain (2018); Liska et al, Cerebral Cortex (2018); Giorgi et al, Cell Reports (2017).
Training in neuroscience, experience in in vivo electrophysiological recordings or opto/chemo-genetics and viral techniques are recommended, but not mandatory. We value candidates that are proactive, highly-motivated, and who are willing to interact with both experimental and computational neuroscientists.
The successful applicants will join a thriving neuroscience environment at the Center for Neuroscience and Cognitive Systems of IIT, in partnership with the University of Trento (Cimec, https://www.cimec.unitn.it/en).
Please note that these positions are contingent on the signature of the relevant Grant agreement.
IIT was established in 2003 and successfully created a large-scale infrastructure in Genova and a network of 10 state-of-the-art laboratories countrywide with an international staff of about 1100 people from more than 50 countries.
