Postdoc - System Neuroscience
Are you motivated to join an interactive training program in Neuroscience?
A postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Roberto Vincis in the department of Biological Science at Florida State University starting January 2020.
We study how neural circuits integrate chemosensory information with experience, to generate behavior. We use a multidisciplinary approach involving neural (multi-electrode recordings) and optical (fiber photometry) recording of defined population of thalamic and cortical neurons in behaving mice, pharmacology, molecular tools and transgenic and viral tracing.
One of our focuses is to uncover the cortical and subcortical neural mechanisms that mediate the perception of flavor - the integration of taste, smell and oral somatosensory features of food. Additionally, there will be opportunities to participate in collaborative projects with other chemosensory groups here at FSU.
Candidates who are recent doctoral graduates and with a strong background in chemical senses are encouraged to apply. A PhD in neuroscience or related fields is required. Expertise in one or more of the above experimental techniques is a strong plus.
