Vocal learning in bats: a neuro-molecular approach.

The Chair of Zoology of the Technische Universität München (TUM, Germany) invites applications for a PostDoc position (3 years) in experimental neuroscience. The position is available for an exciting new project exploring the neuro-molecular basis of complex vocal behaviors in a new mammalian model system for vocal learning: the bat. The expected outcome of the project will also have direct relevance to language development and evolution in humans.

Responsibilities: The successful candidate will conduct neurophysiological experiments in bats (i.e. single and multi electrode recordings in anesthetized and awake animals).

Requirements: • PhD in a field related to neurobiology/neurophysiology. • Previous lab experience in electrophysiology, especially in in-vivo recordings • Interest to learn/apply interdisciplinary approaches to complex neuroethological questions • Experience with Matlab

As experiments will involve electrophysiology in FOXP1/FOXP2 knockdown bats, an additional background in molecular biology/genetics would be beneficial for a successful application.

Work environment The project will be undertaken at the Chair of Zoology, TUM, in Freising/Munich, but be part of an international research effort that includes the Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics in Nijmegen (The Netherlands), the Division of Neurobiology, Dept. Biologie II, LMU, Munich, (Germany), and the University of California, Berkeley (USA). Thus, the position offers the opportunity to work in a stimulating scientific environment within an international collaboration.

The TUM is among the leading universities in Germany. The TUM was one of the first “Universities of Excellence” of the nationwide Excellence Initiative in 2006. Research at the Chair of Zoology focuses on sensory processing in the central nervous system, using different animal model system and a wide range of methodological approaches including in-vivo and in-vitro electrophysiology, imaging and neuroanatomy.

We are currently seeking to appoint an enthusiastic and highly motivated
Postdoctoral Scientist to work on comparative and population genomics
studies, with a focus on evolutionary and molecular mechanisms of
mammalian environmental adaption. The successful candidate will
be responsible for developing computational methods and analysing
primary genomic resources, in order to study genomics signatures of
environmental adaptation, with a particular focus on the adaptation
to aridity. The post holder will work in a highly collaborative and
interdisciplinary environment and interact with other group members and
external collaborators coming from a variety of backgrounds, to include;
Experimental Biologists, Field Ecologists and Computational Biologists.
To be considered for this post you will hold a PhD in Computational
Biology or Population Genetics and already have experience with
large-scale genomic data analysis in at least one of the following areas;
(i) population genomics, (ii) molecular evolution, (iii) gene expression
regulation. The successful candidate will also have extensive knowledge
in R and other script languages such as Perl or Python, be autonomous,
organised and collaborative and also possess strong problem solving
