The Clarke lab is a behavioural neuroscience lab that investigates the contribution of hippocampal-prefrontal circuitry to the regulation of psychiatric symptomatology. Our current emphasis is on schizophrenia. It uses a wide range of neurobiological techniques including neuroimaging, wireless recordings of cardiovascular activity, pharmacology and sophisticated cognitive testing.

The post is based at purpose-built facilities within the University of Cambridge. Applicants should either have, or will shortly be awarded, a PhD in behavioural neuroscience or related disciplines. Previous experience in neuroimaging, neuropsychopharmacology or virally mediated methodologies is highly desirable.
