We are looking for highly motivated and creative people to join the lab. The Kohl lab will provide a dynamic research environment with exceptional resources in one of the most exciting scientific hubs in the world.

Postdoctoral Fellows - position Available

If you are interested in joining the group as a postdoc, please contact Jonny with (1) a cover letter detailing prior research experience and future career goals, (2) a CV and (3) the names and contact details of 2-3 referees. Fully funded positions are available, but all applicants are encouraged to apply for external funding (e.g. EMBO, HFSP, Sir Henry Wellcome, Branco Weiss, DFG, SNF, Newton International and EU Marie Curie fellowships).  

We are especially keen to recruit people with a background in neuroscience and expertise in patch-clamp electrophysiology, optical imaging or transcriptional profiling (e.g. scRNA-seq), but all strong applications will be considered seriously. Strong quantitative and programming skills are always a bonus. You should typically apply at least 6 months in advance of when you would ideally like to start.

Phd studentS

Prospective students who would like to carry out a PhD in the Kohl lab should contact Jonny and include a CV. We welcome applications from motivated students of a broad range of backgrounds (Biological Sciences, Engineering, Computer Science etc.) that are interested in using cellular biology, mouse genetics, transcriptomics, neuroanatomy, electrophysiology, optogenetics, in vivo calcium imaging, and behavioral assays to study state-dependent neural processing. Graduate students will join the lab via the four-year Crick PhD Programme (applications open early October).


Undergraduate students interested in an internship can apply to the Crick-Calleva Summer Student Programme (deadline late January).
