The Reimer Lab (https://www.bcm.edu/research/faculty-labs/jacob-reimer-lab) studies sensory processing across different brain states and the mechanisms that control the gating and routing of information in the brain. We are seeking a research associate who will perform cranial window surgeries on mice and conduct experiments using multiphoton fluorescence imaging. They may also aid in experimental design, equipment setup and maintenance.
- Collect large scale neural recordings using multiphoton fluorescence imaging as well as behavioral recordings.
- Document research activities for publication and grant reporting.
- Prepare animals for recording, which may include cranial window surgery and/or viral vector injections into mouse cortex.
- Set up and maintain behavioral apparatus and data acquisition equipment.
- Train less experienced lab members for surgery, recording, and best experimental practices.
- Master's degree in Basic Science or a related field. Experience in lieu of degree will not be accepted.
- Three years of relevant experience typically as a Research Assistant, Research Technician or Postdoctoral Fellow/Associate.
