Three full-time postdoctoral positions in systems neuroscience are available immediately in Dr. Valentin Dragoi’s laboratory in the Department of Neurobiology and Anatomy, McGovern Medical School, University of Texas at Houston. The positions will offer opportunities for combining multiple-electrode recordings in the visual and prefrontal cortices of non-human primates, optogenetics, behavioral, and computational approaches. The ideal candidate would have a strong background in systems and/or computational neuroscience as well as experience with neurophysiological recording techniques. Knowledge of Matlab, C++, and statistical modeling would be a plus. Completion of the PhD degree in neuroscience, psychology, engineering, physics, or related field is required before the start date. Our institution offers a first-class training and research environment in systems and computational neuroscience, and a highly collaborative environment with scientists at Baylor College of Medicine, Rice University, and University of Houston. To apply, please send a CV and brief statement of research interests to firstname.lastname@example.org email@example.com with the subject line ‘Postdoc position’.

About University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston
Dr. Valentin Dragoi's lab is located within the Texas Medical Center, the largest medical center in the world, at the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston. The lab studies how networks of cortical neurons encode information and how the population code influences behavioral decisions. The lab combines electrophysiological (wired and wireless multi-electrode recording, optical and electrical stimulation), behavioral, and computational methods in order to examine these processes.
