Fellowship - Experienced
Academic / Research
The Neurophysiology of Learning and Behaviour lab at Concordia University led by Dr Mihaela Iordanova is seeking to recruit a postdoctoral fellow to embark on a novel examination of how the brain assigns appetitive or aversive significance to cues in the environment. Our research approach combines theoretically-driven behavioural designs with high-density electrophysiology, optogenetic, chemogenetic, and pharmacological neuroscience methods. The successful postdoctoral fellow will join a team of a post-doctoral fellow, a research assistant, four graduate students, a lab technician and many undergraduate students.
