A postdoctoral position is available in the the lab of Dr. Michael Higley in the Department of Neuroscience at the Yale School of Medicine (New Haven, CT). We are looking for a highly motivated individual to combine electrophysiological and optical methods, including 2-photon imaging and optogenetics, to investigate the organization and function of inhibitory GABAergic circuits in the mouse visual cortex. Our group has considerable expertise applying these approaches in both acute brain slices and awake, behaving animals. We are particularly interested in understanding how distinct populations of GABAergic synapses regulate cortical dynamics.
We offer committed mentorship and an outstanding environment for carrying out research that bridges the gaps between cellular and systems neuroscience. Recent publications include Science 2013, 340:759; Cell Reports 2016, 14:2538, Neuron 2017, 95:884. The successful applicant will have completed a recent PhD in neuroscience or related field and should have experience with either imaging or electrophysiology. To apply, please send a current c.v. to email@example.com.
PhD in Neuroscience or related field. Experience in electrophysiology or imaging.
