The laboratory of Jonathan Demb seeks a postdoctoral position to conduct research on neural circuit function in the mammalian retina. Current projects seek to understand how inhibitory inter-neurons shape the flow of information in retinal circuitry as well as the synaptic mechanisms of inhibition. There are also opportunities to study retinal function in mouse models of eye disease.
The ideal candidate would have a background in neuroscience or a related discipline; a strong record of productivity; strong written and oral communication skills; and experience in some of the following: patch clamp electrophysiology, two-photon imaging, optogenetics, computer programming, quantitative analysis.
Applicants should submit a CV, a one paragraph statement of interest and contact information for three references to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
