-> What about applying for a MSCA-PF with us?
UiT The Arctic University of Norway has established «The Arctic MSCA-PF program» (uit.no/project/arcticmsca) to recruit excellent young researchers planning to apply for a Marie Skƚodowska-Curie Postdoctoral Fellowship (MSCA-PF) to pursue a career in research. We invite applications from promising young researchers within the field of Neuroscience, machine learning, data science, systems neuroscience, behavioral neuroscience. The selected candidate will write a proposal for a 24-month MSCA-PF at UiT together with Prof. Eelke Snoeren. This is an opportunity to accelerate your research career while living in the urban research city of Tromsø, uniquely located at the top of the world surrounded by some of Europe’s last pristine wild nature.
We are looking for passionate researchers at the interface of Machine Learning, Data Science and Neuroscience, whose goal is to advance our understanding of the principles of sociosexual behavior in biological networks.
The research team led by Prof. Dr. Snoeren aims to investigate the neural regulation of natural rewarding behaviors, both in physiological and pathological circumstances. We use sexual behavior as a natural incentive-driven behavior to study the reward system in rats. We are especially interested in the regulation of the transition from an intrinsic motivational state into the execution of copulatory behaviors, and the effect of experience. Our research focuses on circuitries involved in both sexual behavior and reward, including e.g. the hypothalamus, medial amygdala and ventral pallidum. To reach our goals, the team employs a combination of traditional behavioral testing, modern manipulation methods, and advanced imaging.
For future research aims, we are looking for enthusiastic MSCA-PF funded postdoctoral fellows who would like to spearhead the development of an (open source) automated complex social behavior annotator with (un)supervised machine learning. However, applications from data scientists and/or neuroscientists with good ideas linked to our current research are very welcome as well.
Please send your CV (max 3 pages) and describe a research project that will strengthen and complement the presented research (max 2 pages) to email@example.com by Feb 17th 2023. Mark your application "Arctic MSCA". Successful candidates will be contacted in late March 2023.
Application deadline: Feb 17th 2023
