We are a behavioral neuroscience laboratory that studies cortical mechanisms of sensory detection and impulse control (zaghalab.com). The core of our experimental approach is to record and perturb neural activity in mice while they are performing well-controlled tasks, in order to derive mechanistic links between neural circuits and behavior/cognition (see Zagha et al., 2015 Neuron). We are particularly interested in the role of cortical feedback pathways in modulating sensory processing. This position is fully funded through the NIH/NINDS, with guaranteed funding for the next 5 years. The postdoc will receive extensive training directly from the PI on experimental design, in vivo electrophysiological recordings and analyses, animal behavior and paper/grant writing. Applicants must have previous training in neuroscience, ideally with experience in electrophysiology, imaging, computation and/or rodent behavior, and a strong publication record. To apply for this position, send your CV and a cover letter describing your research experience and interests to: email@example.com.
