Fully funded postdoctoral position available starting March 2018 studying the neurophysiological substrates of drug addiction and motivated behavior in the laboratory of Lucas Sjulson, MD, PhD. We use a combination of high channel count silicon probe recordings, computational analysis, high speed two-photon and light field imaging, chemo- and optogenetics, molecular tool development, and behavior to elucidate the underlying mechanisms of drug addiction in rodent models and identify targets for translational neuromodulation efforts. Applicants with a broad range of backgrounds will be considered, but priority will be given to applicants with experience in computational analysis in matlab or python, extracellular neurophysiology, or addiction-related behavioral assays in rodents. Strong technical/engineering skills are also favorable.
The Sjulson lab is a new laboratory opening in 2018 in the Depts. of Psychiatry and Neuroscience at Albert Einstein College of Medicine, which offers a vibrant and rapidly-growing neuroscience community with numerous opportunities for mentorship and collaboration. Applicants should submit a curriculum vitae and bibliography, a statement of previous research achievements and interests, and the names and contact information of three references familiar with their work and qualifications to firstname.lastname@example.org.
