Post-Doctoral Scholar in Systems/Computational Neuroscience at Stanford University

Postdoctoral positions are available at Stanford University, Department of Neurobiology in an exciting, uncharted, newly emerging field to study multiregional neural computations underlying dynamic social interactions and its development in Marmosets. We combine largescale neural recordings and perturbations, innovative game-theory driven behavioral paradigms, machine vision and advanced computational and modeling methods to get at how dynamic social behaviors are mediated at the neuronal and population level. Our interdisciplinary laboratory is set in a highly collaborative community promoting scientific excellence. The lab has open positions starting July 1st 2024, earlier or later start dates are possible.

We are looking for bright, highly motivated, detail-oriented team players to join us.

  • Applicants must hold a PhD or MD/PhD in Neuroscience/Engineering/CS/Psychology/related fields. Candidates within their final year of a Ph.D. are especially encouraged to apply.
  • Experience in extracellular recordings and optogenetics using viral vector approaches is required.
  • Experience in behavior, computation or experience working with non-human primates is advantageous, but not required.
  • Excellent organizational and communication (verbal and written) skills, attention to details, ability to work independently and in a collaborative team as well as self-motivation are required.
