Two NIH funded postdoctoral fellow positions are available in the laboratory of Dr. Jun Yamamoto, in the Psychiatry Department Neuroscience Division at UT Southwestern Medical Center to study learning and memory from the systems neuroscience point of view.
Specific emphasis will be placed on deciphering the neural representation of hippocampal - cortical networks during episodic memory tasks. Also, we are currently collaborating with neighboring laboratories to examine abnormal neural activities in the mouse models of dementia and/or psychosis. These works will incorporate the use of hybrid high-density in vivo recording devices, large-scale recordings and big-data analyses, circuit specific manipulations with opto and/or chemogenetic tools in freely behaving rodents.
Candidates must hold Ph.D. and/or M.D. degree. Systems neuroscience research with a track record of leading projects to publication is preferred. Candidates who have experience with in vivo recordings as well as with computational / mathematical / physics and/or engineering background are strongly encouraged to apply. The postdoctoral fellow will be expected to direct independent projects in a multi-disciplinary setting.
Information on our postdoctoral training program and benefits can be found in our Postdoc Handbook or at http://www.utsouthwestern.edu/postdocs.
Interested individuals should send a CV, statement of interests, and a list of three references to:
