We are looking for candidates for a postdoc position in our lab, to work on a project whose goal is to understand the neural basis of simple sensory judgements using modern methods in systems neuroscience together with theory. Some recent publications and methodologies relevant for the project are:-Pardo-Vazquez, JL. et al. (2019) The mechanistic foundation of Weber’s Law. Nature Neuroscience. 22 1493-1502-Reato, D. et al. (2021) Response outcome gates the effect of spontaneous cortical state fluctuations on perceptual decisions. bioRxiv.-Cazettes, F. et al. (2021) Reservoir of decision strategies in the mouse brain. bioRxiv.-Steinmetz, NA. et al. (2021) Neuropixels 2.0: A miniaturized high-density probe for stable, long-term brain recordings. Science 372 (6539) Successful applicants are expected to have experience studying controlled behaviour in rodents using recordings and perturbations. The project has a strong quantitative component, so experience in computational neuroscience and statistics/machine-learning methods for behavioural and neural data analysis will be highly valued. Our lab promotes a horizontal and collaborative environment.We are part of the Champalimaud Neuroscience Programme, a vibrant research community focused on understanding the links between neural activity and behaviour. The position offers a competitive salary and is available immediately for a duration of 3 years (with flexibility).Interested applicants should send their CV, a brief motivation statement and the names of at least 2 references by email to: More Information

    Information technology (IT) is the application of computers to store, study, retrieve, transmit, and manipulate data, or information, often in the context of a business or other enterprise. IT is considered a subset of information and communications technology (ICT). In 2012, Zuppo proposed an ICT hierarchy where each hierarchy level "contain[s] some degree of commonality in that they are related to technologies that facilitate the transfer of information and various types of electronically mediated communications". The term is commonly used as a synonym for computers and computer networks, but it also encompasses other information distribution technologies such as television and telephones. Several industries are associated with information technology, including computer hardware, software, electronics, semiconductors, internet, telecom equipment, and e-commerce. Humans have been storing, retrieving, manipulating, and communicating information since the Sumerians in Mesopotamia developed writing in about 3000 BC, but the term information technology in its modern sense first appeared in a 1958 article published in the Harvard Business Review; authors Harold J. Leavitt and Thomas L. Whisler commented that "the new technology does not yet have a single established name. We shall call it information technology (IT)." Their definition consists of three categories: techniques for processing, the application of statistical and mathematical methods to decision-making, and the simulation of higher-order thinking through computer programs.
