We are looking for postdoc candidates to use cutting edge simultaneous 2-photon/mesoscopic imaging and novel viral CRISPR/Cas9 tools to study mouse behavior in models of autism-spectrum disorders. We aim to understand the organization of local and long-range cortical circuits underlying learning and performance of sensory-guided tasks, the role of development and behavioral state in modifying those networks, and the role of ASD-linked genes in establishing and maintaining cortical function. We welcome candidates with experience in imaging or electrophysiology, but there are also opportunities for those with molecular or computational training.
Our groups have considerable expertise using a wide range of approaches in both acute brain slices and awake, behaving animals to study cortical networks. We offer committed mentorship and an outstanding environment for carrying out research that bridges the gaps between cellular and systems neuroscience. Recent publications include: Science 2013, 340:759; Neuron 2015, 86:740; Neuron 2017, 95:884; Neuron 2018, 97:368. To apply, please send a current c.v. and statement of interests to firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com.
A recent PhD or similar degree in Neuroscience, or a related field. Evidence of past success in experimental or computational neuroscience.
