Research Technician (Neuroscience) - TG1184HM
School of Psychology & Neuroscience
Vacancy Description
School of Psychology and Neuroscience, Salary: £28,331 - £30,046 per annum, Start Date: April 2020 or as soon as possible thereafter, Fixed Term: 3 years
Are you interested in working in a team that looks at how the brain produces behaviour? We are recruiting a motivated research technician to work on a 3-year project led by Dr Maarten Zwart at the School of Psychology and Neuroscience, University of St Andrews.

We use a wide range of tools including optical imaging, optogenetics, and molecular techniques to determine how neural circuits across the brain of the larval zebrafish integrate sensory information and convert this to the movements that make up behaviour. The BBSRC-funded project will focus on the encoding of sensorimotor errors in the olivocerebellar system, and will involve high-speed imaging neural activity using lightsheet and multiphoton microscopy.

Our growing team is part of a highly collaborative environment at the School of Psychology and Neuroscience and the Centre for Biophotonics. We are seeking candidates with backgrounds in zebrafish research, or molecular biology with an interest in learning zebrafish husbandry.

The University is committed to equality for all, demonstrated through our working on diversity awards (ECU Athena SWAN/Race Charters; Carer Positive; LGBT Charter; and Stonewall).  More details can be found at http://www.st-andrews.ac.uk/hr/edi/diversityawards/.
