(available from 1/1/98)
A Postdoctoral Fellowship is available to work on the active and passive
properties of cortical pyramidal neurons in brain slices using
patch-clamp recording together with various imaging techniques. The main
focus of the work will be to further the understanding of how cortical
pyramidal neurons translate synaptic inputs into a neuronal output.
Appointment: two years with the possibility of extension to three years.
The appointment is funded externally by a Wellcome Trust grant.
