The Department of Neurology at Ghent University (Belgium) is seeking to 
fill two PhD positions in preclinical epilepsy research and small animal 
functional imaging. The fellows will join a research project situated in 
the context of an interdisciplinary research partnership between the 
Laboratory for Clinical and Experimental Neurophysiology, Neurobiology 
and Neuropsychology (LCEN3, headed by Prof. dr. Paul Boon) and the 
INFINITY lab (http://www.infinityugent.be ; headed by Prof dr. Chris 
Vanhove )on imaging and modulating abnormal brain networks in the 
epileptic rodent brain.

This preclinical research project includes small animal functional 
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI), video-EEG monitoring, intracranial 
electrophysiology, signal analysis, deep brain stimulation (DBS), drug 
therapy, chemogenetics (DREADDs) and optogenetics in rodent models for 
epilepsy.*Applicants should have a background in biomedical sciences, 
biomedical engineering or related discipline and have a strong interest 
in the domain of animal research, electrophysiology and/or fMRI data 
analysis**. Applicants should be collaborative, dynamic persons who like 
to work in a multidisciplinary research environment. Applicants should 
have good knowledge of the English language and good communication 
skills (written and oral). Candidates will be selected based on 
excellent study results, motivation, good scientific reasoning and 
recommendation letters by previous supervisors. *

The department of Neurology of Ghent University and INFINITY lab offers 
access to several preclinical models for epilepsy research and several 
preclinical research techniques, including state-of-the-art /in vivo/ 
neuroimaging techniques (small animal fMRI, µPET, µSPECT, µCT, optical 
imaging), stereotactic neurosurgery, /in vivo /and/in vitro/ 
neurophysiological recording and neurostimulation techniques, /in vivo/ 
(stem) cell and gene therapy (including optogenetics and chemogenetics).

Both PhD positions will be open for four years with starting date 
between May 2017 and October 2017.

Interested candidates should send a CV, motivation letter, and two 
reference letters to this email address: Robrecht.Raedt at ugent.be
