[Comp-neuro] Postdoc position available - in vivo electrophysiology

An NIH funded postdoctoral research position is available in my lab at Emory University in Atlanta to study the influence of basal ganglia on thalamo-cortical interactions in vivo.  The techniques available include whole cell recording in anesthetized and waking mice (using the new autopatcher methodology), silicon probe multichannel recordings, optogenetic stimulation of basal ganglia circuits, and in vivo voltage-sensitive dye imaging.  This work is expected to shed significant insights into  how the basal ganglia loop back to cortex is 'closed', and how parkinsonian pathological activity patterns result from dopamine depletion.

Successful candidates will need a completed PhD and previous research experience using in vivo electrophysiology.  The project will also involve innovations in computational data analysis and thus requires an advanced skill set in signal analysis using Matlab.

Candidates interested in this opportunity should contact me at djaeger at emory.edu<mailto:djaeger at emory.edu> for further information.
