Job Details

Two postdoctoral positions are available to investigate circuit and synaptic mechanisms in the auditory cortex in the lab of Dr. Apicella at University of Texas at San Antonio.

The successful candidate will use a combination of in vivo electrophysiology, calcium imaging and behavior in the rodent to study the neural circuit mechanisms of cortical long-range GABAergic projections that enable auditory decision-making and fear/aversive behavior.  The ideal candidate will be a dynamic, highly motivated scientist with experience in in vivo electrophysiology and/or calcium imaging together with use of Matlab and TDT software. 

Applicants with a Ph.D. in neuroscience, first-author paper(s), strong background in cellular and/or systems neuroscience, and eagerness to think and work creatively and energetically towards understanding sensory-related circuit organization and function in the mammalian brain are encouraged to apply. We welcome applicants from all backgrounds. 

The Neurobiology community at UTSA provides an ambitious, supportive and collaborative research environment, and offers excellent training and career development opportunities.  Qualified candidates should send their CV, a statement of research interests and goals, and the names and contact information of 3 references to Alfonso Apicella at alfonso.apicella@utsa.edu.

Company

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position at the University of Texas at San Antonio to investigate circuit and synaptic mechanisms underlying sound localization. The successful candidate will use optogenetics and whole-cell patch-clamp to examine synaptic mechanisms in acute brain slices, and utilize chemogenetics and optogenetics in-vivo to manipulate relevant neural circuits to modify behavior and record single unit at same time. Applicants must possess PhD and/or MD degree and have strong background in neuroscience. Experience in patch-clamp electrophysiology and in-vivo extracellular recording is highly desirable. Please send your CV and names and contact information of three references to Dr. Alfonso junior Apicella via email: alfonso.apicella@utsa.edu
