Postdoc position available. My lab studies dopamine, decision-making and corticostriatal plasticity. We use mouse genetic tools, fast-scan cyclic voltammetry, patch-clamp electrophyiosology, optogenetics and multiple behavioral paradigms, particularly semi-naturalistic, homecage operant paradigms. Exciting new directions are emerging in the lab and I am looking for a motivated postdoct to join. The position will involve learning more than one method/technique, including both physiological and behavioral methods, with a goal of linking phyiology and behavior as much as possible. The ideal candidate will have prior experience with at least one physiological method (cyclic voltammetry, electrophysiology, optogenetics, etc.) and willingness to learn and develop skills in other methods as appropriate to answer the question at hand.

2. Experience in neuroscience research
3. Experience and skill in at least one physiological method (electrophysiology, optogenetics, cyclic voltammetry, fiber photometry, etc.)
