Project title: In-vivo intracellular electrophysiology postdoctoral researcher position
We are seeking to fill one postdoctoral researcher position in the Stanley laboratory. The ideal candidate has an extensive in-vivo electrophysiology background. Our laboratory conducts research into how information about the outside world is encoded by the patterns of spiking neurons in the sensory pathways of the brain. We combine experimental and computational approaches to better understand and control aspects of the neural code. Specifically, we focus on the visual and somatosensory pathways at the junction between the sensory periphery and sensory cortex. Our experimental approaches include multi-site, mutli-electrode recording, optical imaging, behavior, and patterned stimulation.
This postdoctoral researcher position is specifically focused on our Brain Initiative project, in collaboration with the lab of Craig Forest, which is aimed at developing automatic patching techniques for deep brain structures. We aim to uncover the subthreshold dynamics underlying sensory information transmission in the thalamocortical pathway. The successful candidate will be an expert in vivo electrophysiologist, preferably with experience in engineering design and implementation.
We are interested in an independent, motivated, and talented candidate with a PhD in neuroscience, neuroengineering, or an equivalent field. An excellent in vivo intracellular electrophysiology background is required. Preference will be given to candidates with experience in awake animal recordings, quantitative methods, and engineering design/implementation.
Please send the following materials to aortiz at gatech.edu. Applicants with the appropriate background may be asked for additional information.
