A funded postdoctoral position with an emphasis on studying the synaptic mechanisms of cognitive motor learning is available immediately in the laboratory of Dr. Aaron Kerlin (www.kerlinlab.org). Successful applicants will use state-of-the-art equipment we have constructed for the in vivo measurement and manipulation of synaptic function, including novel multiphoton imaging, optogenetic, and computational tools.
We are looking for a highly motivated individual with a strong background in cellular/systems neuroscience, but also welcome applicants with strong quantitative skills from related fields (e.g., biology, biophysics, biomedical engineering). A very competitive salary as well as substantial material and personnel support will be provided to the postdoctoral fellow leading this project. This is a unique opportunity to study the signals that generate learning and potentially bridge a longstanding gap between how artificial and real networks learn.
PhD in neuroscience, biology, physics, biomedical engineering or related field.
Strong background in cellular/systems neuroscience
Strong quantitative skills from related fields (e.g., biology, biophysics, biomedical engineering).
