The lab of Dr. Jason Christie at the University of Colorado School of Medicine ( is currently searching for a Staff Scientist (Professional Research Associate) interested in studying neural circuits that support learning. The selected 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: Bonnan et al. 2021 Nat Comm; Gaffield et al. 2019 Neuron, and 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 computations for learning and improving behavior.

The ideal candidate should have a PhD in Neuroscience or Biophysics. The candidate must have experience with either electrophysiology (in vivo silicon probe recording or patch-clamp) and/or two-photon imaging (in vivo or in vitro). The candidate should be comfortable with advanced analysis methods. Use of rodent behavioral techniques and surgery experience is beneficial.

This is a long-term position that would benefit an experienced scientist who is interested in professionally pursuing experimental neuroscience. Salary is commensurate with the level of experience and qualifications. 

Applicants should provide a statement of research interests with their CV and list of references by email to: jason.m.christie at
