About the ELMI

ELMI was created in 2001 to establish a unique communication network between European scientists working in the field of light microscopy and the manufacturers of their equipment.

Postdoc Position in Neuroscience (Two-Photon Imaging), University of Freiburg, Germany


A postdoc position is available for a Ph.D. with expertise in two-photon imaging and ideally patch-clamp recordings to participate in setting up and applying a state-of-the-art combined 2-photon microscope and patch-clamp recording setup for neuroscientific questions. Candidates with prior experience in studying neuronal activities in vivo, in brain slices or cell culture are encouraged to apply.

Successful candidates will join the Optophysiology Group headed by Prof. Dr. Ilka Diester at the University of Freiburg. We are a young and international research group. The group’s core research area is motor control. We apply modern techniques focusing on optogenetics and multielectrode array recordings in trained rodents. Your project would first be dedicated to the technical aspects of setting up a new two-photon microscope and combine it with patch-clamp recordings. Afterwards, a neuroscientific question focused on motor control will be addressed. The position comes with a TVL13 salary.
