A competitive postdoctoral fellowship focused on the effects that Huntington’s disease exerts on the neurobiology of motivational processing is available in our lab in the summer of 2017. We are looking for a highly dedicated and talented individual who completed a Ph.D. in neuroscience to utilize mini-endoscope technology for visualization of genetically-identified large neuronal assemblies using calcium dynamics during the expression of sophisticated behaviors. Interested candidates can contact Joe Cheer (firstname.lastname@example.org) in the department of Anatomy and Neurobiology .
Experience in stereotaxic surgery, mouse operant behavior, viral vectors and transgenic work are required. Also required are independent thinking, productivity, strong interest in disease-related research and English fluency. Electronics and optics knowledge as well as MatLab® programming are desirable.
