The Howe Lab at Boston University (howe-lab.org) is searching for a Postdoctoral Fellow to investigate neuromodulator dynamics in the basal ganglia responsible for regulating movement and learning in health and disease states. Studies will be conducted in behaving mice (normal and Parkinson's Disease models) using new optical approaches developed in our lab for chronically measuring and manipulating cell-type and neurotransmitter specific signaling at multiple spatial and temporal scales. Projects will involve open collaborations with a diverse international team of leading experts in the basal ganglia and Parkinson's Disease. Opportunities will be provided for travel to international conferences and smaller meetings with project collaborators. Technical and analytical training will be provided, but prior experience with behaving mice and/or optical and electrophysiological techniques is required. Qualified candidates will be invited to meet with Dr. Howe via zoom to discuss details of potential projects and will have an opportunity to visit the lab in-person (expenses covered).
