We are seeking a skillful and enthusiastic postdoctoral research fellow to join the Swadlow lab at the University of Connecticut.  An NIH funded postdoctoral position is immediately available to study mechanisms of encoding and transmission of visual information in the thalamocortical system of awake rabbits during shifting brain states.  The job involves working with a team that records, manipulates and analyzes single neuron and network activity, using a variety of electrophysiological computational and behavioral tools. The lab is committed to facilitating professional development by supporting conference travel, workshops, seminars, writing, and networking. 

Candidates with a doctoral degree in Neuroscience, Neurobiology, or a related field should have a strong background in systems neuroscience, prior experience in electrophysiological recording and good oral and written communication skills.  Experience with in vivo extracellular recording, optogenetics, modeling of network behavior and small animal surgery is highly desirable.  Familiarity with Matlab or Python are a plus.

To apply please provide a brief description of research experience and interests, CV and contact information for three relevant references by email to Dr. Swadlow (
