Full Time - Entry Level
Academic / Research
The Golshani Lab at UCLA is seeking a postdoctoral fellow with some Matlab programming experience to perform and analyze large- scale silicon probe-based electrophysiological recordings from models of Dup15q syndrome (a major cause of autism and intellectual disability) in awake behaving animals. The candidate can also learn to perform calcium imaging with miniaturized microscopes in the models. The goal is to understand how the thalamocortical network generates abnormal oscillations in the disease model, the discover the role of these oscillations in abnormal behavior.
Some experience with programming (Matlab or Python)

About Peyman Golshani
The Golshani Lab uses two-photon and miniature microscope calcium imaging and large-scale electrophysiological recordings and optogenetics to understand how network dynamics are altered in models of epilepsy and autism.
