We are an inter­di­sci­pli­nary lab at the Neu­ro­sci­ence Rese­arch Cen­ter

HiWi pos­i­tion: Research in fish vocal­isa­tion beha­viour

Work­ing field:

  • Basic hand­ling of fish
  • Set­ting up and per­form­ing beha­vi­oral exper­i­ments (acous­tic com­mu­nic­a­tion in fish)
  • Basic ana­lysis/pre­pro­cessing of acquired data
  • Nego­ti­able work­ing hours, although most exper­i­ments will need to be per­formed in the morn­ing and early after­noon over con­sec­ut­ive days


  • Strong interest in animal beha­vior
  • Basic pro­gram­ming exper­i­ence (ideally in MAT­LAB and/or Python)
  • Cur­rently enrolled as a uni­versity stu­dent (BSc or MSc)

What we of­fer:

Our lab is study­ing the trop­ical fish spe­cies (Dan­ion­ella trans­lu­cida) as a new model organ­ism for neur­os­cience because it is not only very small, but also trans­par­ent. This allows us to use optical meth­ods to meas­ure their brain activ­ity. Moreover, this fish dis­plays fas­cin­at­ing social beha­vi­ors, includ­ing acous­tic com­mu­nic­a­tion. We are look­ing for sup­port in set­ting up and run­ning beha­vi­oral exper­i­ments to study these social beha­vi­ors.

Join our group of bio­lo­gists, phys­i­cists, neur­os­cient­ists and engin­eers in study­ing brain cir­cuits under­ly­ing ver­teb­rate com­mu­nic­a­tion. Based on the Char­ité Mitte cam­pus, we offer flex­ible con­tracts between 40-80 hours per month.
