The lab of Dr. Jason Christie at the Max Planck Florida Institute for Neuroscience (http://www.maxplanckflorida.org/jason-christie.html) is currently searching for postdoctoral candidates interested in studying neural circuits of learning. The select candidate will participate in a well-funded research program examining how behavior is flexibly shaped by cerebellar-dependent processing using a variety of advanced recording techniques. This includes in vivo two-photon microscopy, electrophysiology, and optogenetics in behaving mice (see recent work: Gaffield et al. 2019 Neuron, Rowan et al. 2018 Neuron). We also use acute brain slices and patch clamp electrophysiology to decipher how cellular physiology and synaptic function provides a basis for the cerebellum’s role in behaviorally relevant computation.

The ideal candidate should have a PhD in Neuroscience or Biophysics. Previous experience with electrophysiology and/or light-microscopy is preferred. Also, candidates with technical backgrounds including electronics engineering, computer science, or physics are highly encouraged to apply.

Applicants are encouraged to provide a statement of research interests with their CV and list of references. For additional information please contact Dr. Christie directly: jason.christie at mpfi.org.
