The Tabuchi Lab in the Department of Neurosciences at Case Western Reserve University seeks a highly motivated postdoctoral fellow to study how neural coding impacts signaling, plasticity, and behavior, using the fruit fly Drosophila as a model system.
Applicants should have a PhD and/or MD degree and be energetic and creative. Candidates with strong training in molecular genetics, biochemistry, functional imaging, electrophysiology, and/or computational analysis are desired. The lab applies multidisciplinary approaches in Drosophila to understand how non-canonical (temporal or analog) neural codes represent persistent internal states such as arousal and hunger.
In addition, the lab seeks to identify novel pathological mechanisms of neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer’s disease. Our research scope includes hierarchical interactions of gene expression, biophysical properties such as ionic currents, temporal structure of membrane potential dynamics including spiking patterns, functional synaptic connectivity of neural circuits, and behavior.
