The lab of Dr. Nathan Urban, University of Pittsburgh, Department of
Neurobiology and Center for the Neural Basis of Cognition invites
applications for two postdoctoral positions for projects on the analysis of
olfactory system function and circuitry. Projects involve measuring of
neural activity in vivo or in vitro using physiological and imaging
approaches (whole cell patch clamp and calcium imaging in vitro and
2-photon imaging and physiology in vivo). We seek both experimentalists and
computational neuroscientists interested in exploring the following topics
in rodent model systems:

The mechanisms and role of biophysical and circuit-level neuronal diversity
Connections between biophysical and statistical models of neurons
Sensory coding in control mice and in disease models

Successful candidates will have a track record of publications and
experience in experimental and/or computational neuroscience. Interests
must be aligned with the broad interests of the lab and successful
applicants will be expected to participate in ongoing collaborations with
other groups in Pittsburgh and in other locations. Postdocs in the lab will
have the opportunity to present their work at national and international

Through mentoring and by creating opportunities for independent projects,
postdocs will be in an excellent position to develop towards independent
career objectives.

Applicants can contact Dr. Urban via e-mail at nurban at pitt.edu and should
apply via: http://goo.gl/forms/27qj1SJxw4

Qualifications: The successful candidate should have a PhD or equivalent
degree in neuroscience, engineering, computer science or a related
discipline. Clear evidence of research productivity and ability to work on
collaborative projects is also essential.

Feel free to forward to interested colleagues.
