A postdoc position is anticipated to be available in the laboratory of
Dr. Robert Butera at the Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, GA.
The postdoc will conduct single-cell electrophysiology experiments using
dynamic clamp techniques to study mechanisms underlying neuronal
synchrony, and also develop user modules for our dynamic clamp system
RTXI (www.rtxi.org) to conduct these experiments.   While the postdoc
will work in the lab of Dr. Butera, (s)he will be part of a dynamic
collaborative team that includes the laboratories of Dr. Astrid Prinz at
Emory University and Dr. Carmen Canavier at the LSU Health Sciences
Center.  The ideal candidate will have experience in intracellular
electrophysiology techniques and competent computer skills, as evidenced
by peer reviewed publications.  Computational neuroscience skills are a

Salary is based on experience and NIH NRSA pay scales.

For more information, contact Dr. Robert Butera (rbutera at gatech.edu).
Interested individuals should send a CV, representative publications,
and a list of 3 references.  All applications will be held in confidence.
