PhD In neurophysiology (Germany)

A PhD position (TVL E13/2) is available to study the neurophysiological correlates of
 cognitive representations in behaviourally-trained crows (Corvus corone). Much effort
will be directed at the nidopallium caudolaterale (NCL), a brain region associated with
the highest levels of cognition in birds. A sophisticated behavioural methodology will be
combined with techniques for examining the electrical activity of groups of neurons.

Requirements for this position:
·       experience in Matlab and/or C-programming
·       passion for animal training
·       familiarity with electrophysiology
·       degree in Biology, Computer Science, Electrical Engineering or Physics

The candidate will participate in a stimulating scientific adventure establishing the crow
as a new promising model system in systems neurophysiology. An international and
multidisciplinary doctoral program is provided by the Graduate Training Centre of
Neuroscience, University of Tübingen (

Please send applications including copies of graduation certificates (e.g. Abiturzeugnis),
CV, transcript of study records, and names/addresses of two references preferably via
email to:
