FUNDED POSTDOCTORAL POSITION with emphasis on advanced image analysis
techniques, single particle tracking and/or modeling is available for a
highly motivated candidate at Washington University School of Medicine.

Our lab is dedicated to studying the mechanisms of synaptic transmission
at individual synapses and the role of synaptic plasticity in information
processing. Several current projects have translational emphasis on
dysfunction in information processing in neurological disorders such as
autism and mental retardation. The lab utilizes cutting-edge imaging and
electrophysiological tools in combination with image analysis and
computational techniques to approach these questions.
