[Comp-neuro] postdoc position: insect neurophysiology and aerodynamics

Wed May 28 15:56:15 CEST 2008

A postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Fabrizio
Gabbiani at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas. The lab studies
mechanisms of visually guided collision avoidance at the cellular,
systems, and computational level using a variety of techniques
(intra-/extra- cellular recordings, calcium imaging, pharmacology,
behavior using high-speed video, compartmental modeling). The goal of
the current project is to investigate how flight control and
collision avoidance maneuvers are generated in freely flying
animals. The postdoctoral fellow will have access to state-of-the art
facilities for his/her project, and will be part of an international
team based in the US and Europe. Further information about the lab
can be found on our web site (http://glab.bcm.tmc.edu) and about the
project by contacting Dr. Gabbiani (see below).

Applicants should have a strong work ethic, a
theoretical/computational background and/or experience with
electrophysiology from a neuroethological perspective. Please send CV,
statement of interests and the email addresses of at least two
referees to Dr. Fabrizio Gabbiani (gabbiani at bcm.edu).
