PhD position in Visual Neuroscience and Neurophotonics at the Université de Montréal

Funded PhD positions in Neurophotonics and Visual Neuroscience at the Université de Montréal ( We use a range of behavioral and neurophysiological techniques including calcium imaging and optogenetics on mice to study brain circuits underlying vision. We also focus on exploring plasticity after a stroke in the visual system and developing innovative neuroprosthesis devices to restore vision.
Candidates with a strong background in in vivo Neurophysiology AND/OR Behavioral Neuroscience AND/OR Engineering in Neuroscience are encouraged to apply.
