The Department of Neurobiology at the University of Pittsburgh invite applications for a highly motivated Postdoctoral Research Fellow to apply new approaches to the analysis of behaviors of animal models of disease.
The successful candidate is expected to take a leadership role in ongoing research projects applying and refining automated analysis using tools such as DeepLabCut to large scale video recordings of animal models including non-human primates and rodents.
The successful candidate will regularly interact with the growing community of neuroscience researchers at both Pitt and Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) including researchers affiliated with organizations such as the Center for Neuroscience at the University of Pittsburgh (CNUP) and the Center for the Neural Basis of Cognition (CNBC). Postdocs can thus interact with numerous labs sharing similar research interests, and participate in neuroscience seminars, retreats etc.
Applicants must have a PhD in Engineering, Computer Science, Neuroscience or other relevant field and must have demonstrated skill in data analysis, programming, engineering or other quantitative approaches. Candidates must be a US citizen, permanent US resident, or possess a US working permit. Ideal candidates will also have experience behavioral testing in animals or humans, and analysis of video. Outstanding candidates without this experience may also be considered on a case-by-case basis.
