A postdoctoral position in electrophysiology/computational neuroscience is
available at Baylor College of Medicine, in the laboratory of Fabrizio
Gabbiani. Our lab is located in the Texas Medical Center (TMC), close to 
of Houston's cultural and outdoor amenities. For further information 
about Houston
and the TMC please visit 
or http://www.bcm.edu/about/houston/).

Our research focuses on the biophysical mechanisms
underlying the implementation of non-linear operations by neurons and
neuronal circuits. Specifically, we study the neural basis of collision 
avoidance behaviors using electrophysiology,
pharmacology, calcium imaging, high-speed video imaging and telemetry. 
The lab web site home page (glab.bcm.tmc.edu)
has a link to a list of recent publications.

We are looking for a candidate with a strong background
in electrophysiology (intra- and extracellular recordings). Some
experience in neuronal modeling and with Matlab is desirable.
Salary will be commensurate with level of experience, based on an NIH

For further informal inquiries and to apply, please send CV, the names 
and full
contact information of two to three references, and one or two
representative publications to gabbiani at bcm.edu.
