Readout and control of spatiotemporal neuronal codes for behavior
(All optical interrogation of decision making in cortical circuits)
A postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Patrick Kanold at the University of Maryland. The laboratory studies the function, development, and plasticity of the auditory cortex (for more information see http://www.kanold.org). Current projects explore encoding and decision making with in vivo 2-photon imaging combined with in vivo 2-photon holographic optogenetic stimulation in behaving mice.
This project is part of the NIH BRAIN initiative and involves a tight collaboration between experimentalists, physicists, and theorists (http://www.holobrain.org). The ideal candidate will have a PhD in neuroscience, engineering, or related discipline, a background in systems neuroscience, and an ability to work in a multidisciplinary team. Special considerations are given to applicants with training in imaging, in vivo physiology, computational approaches, and programming skills.
Qualified individuals should send a copy of curriculum vitae and names of three references to firstname.lastname@example.org.
