Job Details

A postdoctoral position is available in the Crandall Laboratory at Michigan State University. We are looking for a highly motivated individual to combine electrophysiological and optogenetics methods to investigate the organization as well as the function of neural circuits in the mammalian forebrain. Our lab applies these approaches in both acute brain slices and awake, behaving animals. We are particularly interested in understanding how cortical feedback projections influence information processing in the sensory cortex. Recent publications include Cerebral Cortex 2022, 32:1932; BioRxiv 2021, 467762;  Cell Reports 2017, 21:3065; Neuron 2015, 86:768; Neuron 2013, 78:895; J. Neuroscience 2010, 30:15419.

The Crandall Lab is in the Department of Physiology at Michigan State University, located in East Lansing, Michigan. Our group is also part of the Neuroscience Program, which is a multidisciplinary program consisting of approximately 60 faculty who seek fundamental knowledge about the brain and nervous system.

The successful candidate(s) will have a Ph.D. in neuroscience or a related field and should have experience with electrophysiology. However, all enthusiastic, curious, and ambitious candidates with a doctoral degree are encouraged to apply.

Applicants should email ( a current C.V., contact information for three references, a brief description of past research accomplishments, research interests, and career goals. Review of applications will begin immediately and will continue until the position is filled.
