NIH BRAIN Initiative funded postdoctoral position:
Tracking flow of attention in visual circuits across the brain
The Haider Lab in the Dept. of Biomedical Engineering (BME) at Georgia Tech & Emory University seeks highly motivated and skilled postdoctoral fellows for a 3–5 year NIH BRAIN funded project examining the flow of visual attention signals across the brain.
The project offers significant opportunity to learn cutting-edge research techniques in vivo, including 1) neural population recording with high-density Neuropixels probes, 2) optogenetic circuit manipulation, 3) wide-field calcium imaging and 4) quantitative visual attention behavior.

The ideal candidate has expertise in multi-electrode electrophysiology OR patch clamp recording OR functional fluorescence imaging, along with quantitative skill in data acquisition and analysis (preferably with MATLAB). Candidates should have an inquisitive and collaborative mindset, excellent written and verbal communication skills, and enthusiasm to work in a multi-disciplinary team.
The position is funded for 3 years (up to 5 years total), pending satisfactory performance upon annual review. We are enthusiastic about forming a diverse, international research group. All candidates will be mentored for independent career development.
There is a strong, multidisciplinary concentration of labs focusing on Neuroscience @ GT and at Emory. Atlanta is vibrant, green, sunny year-round, and one of the most affordable and livable major cities of the US.
Applications should include a CV, a brief statement of prior research and future goals, expected date of availability, and names and contact information of three references. Please email these materials to firstname.lastname@example.org
