Postdoctoral Researcher - Systems Neuroscience / Cortico - Hippocampal Interaction Study
An NIH-funded postdoctoral fellow position focused on studying the hippocampal - cortical network communication is available in the laboratory of Dr. Jun Yamamoto, in the Psychiatry Department Neuroscience Division at UT Southwestern Medical Center to study learning and memory from the systems neuroscience point of view.
Specific emphasis will be placed on understanding the neural content and the role of hippocampal - entorhinal network during episodic memory task. This work will incorporate the use of high-density in vivo recording and optogenetics in freely behaving transgenic mice.
Candidates must hold a Ph.D. and/or M.D. degree. Systems neuroscience research with a track record of leading projects to publication is preferred. Candidates who have experience with in vivo recording techniques as well as with computational / mathematical / physics background are strongly encouraged to apply. The postdoctoral fellow will be expected to direct independent projects in a multi-disciplinary setting and collaborate with the other members of the laboratory.
