GROUP

VACANCIES

Led by Vincenzo De Paola, the Synaptic Plasticity and Repair Group works collaboratively with research groups worldwide to try to understand the basic principles of synaptic development and plasticity by visualizing and manipulating cortical circuits directly in the living brain. Friendly, determined and cosmopolitan, the Group is expanding and would like to hear from motivated undergraduate and postgraduate students and postdocs. Applicants should consider how they would fit into the Group and what they would like to work on.
