The Ellwood Lab in the Department of Neurobiology and Behavior at Cornell University is seeking outstanding, driven applicants for postdoctoral positions in neuroscience starting in the summer or fall of 2020.
The Ellwood Lab studies the effects of neuromodulators on cognition. We are particularly interested in the role of the prefrontal cortex (PFC) in flexible behavior and working memory and how these abilities are shaped by neuromodulator release. We use multi- and single-photon imaging mice, as well as optogenetics and methods from computational neuroscience and machine learning.
As we are systems neuroscience lab, we are primarily interested in candidates with extensive experience in neural recordings from populations of neurons in awake behaving animals; however, exceptional candidates with a background in engineering or physics are also encouraged to apply. Applicants must either have a Ph.D. or be nearing the completion of their doctorate in a relevant field.
Please send a CV (with publications), a research statement (< 1 page) and a list of three references to Ian Ellwood (email@example.com).
