Full Time
Organization Type

Voltage imaging is the optical detection of cellular electrical signalling. It promises new neuroscientific insights through the imaging of circuit dynamics deep in the living brain at previously inaccessible scales of time and space, detailed biophysical understanding of cellular signaling through detection of membrane voltage dynamics in subcellular compartments, and new avenues of disease modelling and therapeutic research through massively parallel recording of neural dynamics.
You'll work on a multidisciplinary project at the cutting edge of this developing field.
Potential projects include:
• Nanoscopic investigations of signalling dynamics in synapses
• Investigation of developing zebrafish brains through absolute voltage imaging
• Development of multiphoton voltage imaging techniques for mouse brains.
