New post-doctoral positions are available immediately for outstanding candidates in visual systems neuroscience
Two NIH-funded positions available to work on the following projects in the Briggs lab at the University of Rochester:
- Developing novel virus-mediated circuit tracing & optogenetic manipulation methods for targeting visual cortico-cortical circuits in NHPs
- Utilizing virus-mediated optogenetic manipulation to study corticothalamic circuits in NHPs
Both projects involve collaborations with labs at the University of Rochester as well as with Drs. Pasupathy & Bair at the University of Washington, providing opportunities for cross-lab/institutional training and experiences. Applicants should have strong practical knowledge of visual system neurophysiology. Candidates with prior experience with optogenetics, virus-mediated circuit tracing, and/or neuroanatomy in NHPs are especially encouraged to apply. Competitive salary and benefits that conform to NIH requirements will be offered, commensurate with experience. Applicants from backgrounds less well represented in neuroscience are strongly encouraged to apply.
To apply, send a letter of application, CV, and the names of three references to:
Farran Briggs, Ph.D. Associate Professor of Neuroscience and Brain & Cognitive Sciences
