Postdoctoral Position - Wireless Optogenetics and Electrophysiology in Behaving Rats
University of Arizona
June 15, 2018
Full Time - Experienced
Academic / Research
The Computational and Experimental Neuroscience Laboratory is looking for a postdoctoral fellow to work on understanding the computational roles of the multiple levels of the rat hippocampal longitudinal axis. The work will involve state-of-the-art wireless optogenetic manipulations and high-density tetrode recordings in the behaving animal. While some background in experimental neuroscience using these techniques is preferred, the position may be suitable for a motivated computational neuroscientist wanting to learn experimental neuroscience techniques.
The project is highly multi-disciplinary and will involve collaborations with other researchers in the US and abroad, therefore good communication skills are required. Applicant should send a cover letter (email is ok), a CV and the names/contact information of at least two references to Dr. Jean-Marc Fellous (fellous at email.arizona.edu). The search is ongoing and is projected to be completed by October 1st, 2018. Applications will be processed as they are received. More information about the laboratory can be found at http://amygdala.psychdept.arizona.edu/lab.html. The CENL and the University of Arizona are committed to maintaining a diverse and inclusive work environment and women and minorities are encouraged to apply. The University of Arizona is an equal opportunity, affirmative action employer.
