A postdoctoral fellowship studying neurovascular coupling is available in the laboratory of Patrick Drew. We are looking for an independent, highly motivated scientist to use a combination of optical (two-photon microscopy and intrinsic imaging) and electrophysiological techniques to study neurovascular coupling in awake, behaving mice.  

The successful applicant will have Ph.D. in neuroscience, biomedical engineering, or a related field, and at least one first author publication.  The candidate should have excellent English communication skills, experience with in vivo electrophysiology and/or optical imaging techniques.  Strong quantitative data analysis and signal processing skills are necessary.  The position is for one year, with possibility extension up to two additional years contingent on funding and satisfactory performance.
Candidates should send a statement of research interests, a CV and three letters of reference to: Patrick Drew, pjd17 at psu.edu
