A postdoctoral position is available to study the neural circuit basis of motor learning in the lab of Dr. Court Hull at Duke University (https://www.neuro.duke.edu/). We have recently been funded by the BRAIN initiative as part of a multi-PI effort to reveal common principles of cerebellar learning across multiple species and behaviors. The successful candidate will use a combination of in vivo electrophysiology, calcium imaging and behavior in the rodent (e.g. Heffley et al. 2018, Nature Neuroscience) to study the neural circuit mechanisms that underlie cerebellar learning. The ideal candidate will be a dynamic, highly motivated scientist with experience in electrophysiology and/or calcium imaging, preferably in vivo. The Duke Neurobiology community provides an ambitious, supportive and collaborative research environment, and offers excellent training and career development opportunities. Qualified candidates should send their CV, a statement of research interests and goals, and the names and contact information of 3 references to Court Hull at firstname.lastname@example.org.
