Postdoctoral positions are available in the Cho laboratory at the University of California, Riverside. Our research program is focused on the neural circuit mechanisms of emotional learning and memory [Link]. Projects funded by the NIH will incorporate two-photon microscopy, electrophysiology, in vivo calcium imaging, virus tracing, and optogenetics/chemogenetics in transgenic mouse models.
