What I am looking for in a prospective Rising Star

The prospective participant will be working with me and my group closely to achieve the research objectives of the project (i.e., shared publication).

We expect motivated and enthusiastic participants with a PhD degree – ideally with a background in neuroscience, bioengineering or physics and very good communication skills in English.

Preferably, we will establish a long-term collaboration that could lead to joint research projects, grant proposals, and other scientific initiatives.
