Postdoctoral Position – Ventral Tegmental Area - University of Arizona

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position in the 
computational and experimental neuroscience laboratory at the University 
of Arizona (Fellous laboratory, link below). The applicant will lead a 
project designed to understand the network computations performed within 
the ventral tegmental area of the rat. The applicant will use a 
combination of in vivo behaving (tetrodes), in vitro patch clamp and 
computational modeling techniques.

The laboratory is part of a highly interactive environment (Neural 
Systems Memory and Aging, and E.F. McKnight Brain Institute), and the 
successful candidate will be expected to develop collaborations with 
other laboratories (local collaborators include: Bruce McNaughton, Carol 
Barnes, Michael Frank, Ed French, Katalin Gothard and Lynn Nadel).

The applicant should have some training in neurophysiology and data 
analyses, and a strong motivation for collaborative work. A general 
background of research in neuromodulation or specifically in the 
dopaminergic system is desirable. Start date is negotiable, salary is 
competitive. Please send a CV, a brief statement of research interests 
and the names of three references to Jean-Marc Fellous: fellous at 
email.arizona.edu.
