The Jaeger lab at Emory University is seeking a postdoctoral fellow to work on our new Udall Center of Excellence for Parkinson's Disease Research project. The studies will employ brain slice electrophysiology to determine changes in synaptic integration in motor thalamus in Parkinsonian mouse. The fellow will work in a team that also employs in vivo recordings, voltage imaging, and computer modeling of thalamocortical interactions in Parkinsonism.
Emory University has a rich training environment in systems and computational neuroscience with many opportunities for engagement through journal clubs, invited speakers, and collaborative group meetings. Udall fellows can also obtain additional training in clinical neuroscience and be engaged in patient outreach.
The successful candidate will need to have prior experience in brain slice electrophysiology and be familiar with analyzing complex electrophysiological data. Matlab coding experience preferred.
Additional Salary Information: Salary range $47,484 - $50,316 based on experience. Standard Emory employee benefits (health insurance etc. ) will be available.
