Postdoctoral Fellowship in Neuronal Circuits of Vision
Montreal Neurological Institute at McGill University
September 17, 2018
Full Time - Experienced
Academic / Research
The Trenholm Lab, located in the Montreal Neurological Institute at McGill University, is seeking a highly motivated postdoctoral fellow to join our team. The position is fully funded for 3 years. Candidates should have a PhD in neuroscience or a related field. Candidates having experience with in vivo 2-photon calcium imaging, electrophysiology, mouse behavioral training, and Matlab/Python programming are particularly encouraged to apply.
Interested candidates should send a cover letter with a summary of research interests and experience, along with curriculum vitae including a list of references, to Stuart Trenholm - firstname.lastname@example.org.
Work in the Trenholm Lab focuses on understanding how the specific wiring of neuronal circuits in the visual system leads to complex visually responsive neurons and ultimately leads to perception. The lab studies visual circuits in healthy, vision-impaired and vision-rehabilitated animals. The lab merges multiple disciplines, including anatomy, physiology, animal behaviour, optogenetics and disease models. Techniques in the lab include monitoring brain activity, at cellular resolution, using in vivo 2-photon calcium imaging, utilizing virus-mediated neuronal circuit tracing strategies, and implementing optogenetic vision restoration approaches.
