The Synapse and Network Development (SND) laboratory led by Dr. Christian Lohmann studies how neuronal connections and brain circuits develop using advanced in vivo and in vitro electrophysiology and (two-photon) microscopy in mice. In particular, the group images the activity patterns of developing neurons and synapses that drive synaptic plasticity in the visual cortex to understand how functional circuits are wired up. We are looking for a Zoological Technician who assists with these experiments by genotyping and administrating the mouse colony, performing surgeries and immunohistochemistry. You will also help with the management of the lab.
