Post-doc positions, Boije Lab, Uppsala University, Sweden

Posted 9/10/2020

We are inviting applications for three postdoctoral positions within the Zebrafish Neuronal Networks group at the Department of Neuroscience (Uppsala University). We investigate the formation and function of neuronal networks in zebrafish, with a focus on the locomotor network and the lateral line system. We use a range of techniques to reveal how cells are generated and integrated within a network and how their activity affect behaviour (CRISPR/Cas9-mediated knock-in, Light-sheet microscopy, optogenetics, calcium imaging, behavioural test, single cell RNA sequencing).
Applicants should have a PhD degree, publications in peer-reviewed journals, be highly motivated, able to work independently and have strong English skills. Experience in one or more of the following is desired and meriting:

• Zebrafish as a model system (Felasa C)
• Optogenetics
• Calcium imaging
• Viral tracing in neurons
• Single cell RNA sequencing
• Data analysis using MATLAB or Python
• Light-sheet, 2-photon imaging
• Electrophysiology
The positions are available immediately, with funding for 1 year with the possibility of an extension. Interested candidates should send their applications; cover letter including a brief statement of research interests and technical expertise, CV, publication list, as well as contact details of references directly to Dr. Boije (
