Research scientist

About the position

We are seeking highly motivated and talented scientists to join our laboratory, which is collaboratively supervised by BrainVisionCenter Nonprofit Ltd. and Clinical Ophthalmology Basel. Our research focuses on understanding the function of large-scale neuronal networks in both the cortex and the retina during vision and complex cognitive tasks. We aim to map the neuronal networks of the visual cortex and retina in awake, behaving animals, including rodents and primates. Our techniques include fast optical measurements combined with photoactivation, electrophysiological measurements (patch clamp, LFP), and neuroanatomy.

Our products are at the cutting edge of neurophotonics and neuroscience research, and we are advancing in the high-potential area of life sciences. Our goal is to bring revolutionary technology to human medicine, including brain research, vision restoration, cancer studies, and the diagnosis and treatment of neurodegenerative diseases.


  • Designing and conducting scientific experiments
  • Utilizing in vitro and in vivo electrophysiological methods (extra- and intracellular, LFP)
  • Performing two-photon imaging and optogenetic measurements
  • Investigating behavioral tasks


  • A medical degree or an MSc in Biophysics, Physics, Engineering, Biology, or another relevant scientific field
  • Excellent oral and written communication skills in English
  • Strong laboratory and analytical skills, with knowledge of statistics and computational abilities
  • Ability to work independently and as part of a strong team in a scientific environment
  • Ideal applicants should have 2-5 years of expertise in one or more of the following areas: in vivo experiments, electrophysiological techniques, imaging, neuroanatomy, and molecular biology techniques


  • PhD or ongoing PhD studies in a relevant field, or a willingness to join our PhD program
  • Research experience in the field of neuroscience
  • Proficiency in programming languages such as Matlab, Python, and C++
