The Burgess laboratory at the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development is recruiting a postdoctoral fellow to study the development and function of neural circuits for sensorimotor processing.

The lab uses behavioral analysis and brain imaging in fluorescently labeled zebrafish to probe structure/function relationships across the entire brain. By applying non-invasive optical and transgenic manipulations, the lab ascertains how specific neurons contribute to sensorimotor computations. The lab is interested in both the function and development of these circuits, using CRISPR-based gene mutations to model human neurodevelopmental disorders. For more information about research in the Burgess Lab, please see:

Candidates should have a background in systems neuroscience or developmental biology. Relevant expertise includes confocal microscopy, neurophysiology, molecular biology and data analysis skills. Candidates should hold a Ph.D. or M.D. degree and less than 4 years of post-doctoral experience, and be highly motivated, with strong publication record.

To Apply:
Applicants should send a brief description of research accomplishments and interests, CV, and contact information for three references to Dr. Harold Burgess ( Applications will be accepted until the position is filled.
