Postdoctoral Fellowships in System and Computational Neuroscience,
University of Lethbridge


A position as Postdoctoral Fellow is now open for an outstanding
postdoctoral associate to conduct research in the field of neural network
functions at the Canadian Centre for Behavioural Neuroscience at the
University of Lethbridge, in Lethbridge, Canada. Our goal is to understand
cellular and brain system mechanisms of memory and memory disorders
associated with aging and brain damage. Brain regions to be investigated
include frontal, parietal cortex and hippocampus, with a view to achieving a
whole picture of how these brain structures work together dynamically to
process, store, and transfer information to one another. 

The project is a collaborative effort between the research groups of Majid
Mohajerani and Bruce McNaughton. Applicants are welcome to contact one of
the investigators for more information. Successful candidates will join the
highly collaborative and interdisciplinary Brain Dynamics group
(http://lethbridgebraindynamics.com/), which has outstanding research
strengths in the areas of learning and memory, decision making, information
coding and related diseases such as Alzheimer's, schizophrenia, addiction
and stroke. Salary scales will be competitive with NIH standards for
postdoctoral researchers.

Post-doctoral fellow with experience in in-vivo imaging techniques and
two-photon imaging, in particular, will be an ideal candidate. Good
communication skills are a must. Experience in MATLAB will be an asset.
Candidates should be prepared to learn and use cutting-edge physiological,
anatomical, and computational techniques, such as virtual reality-based
rodent behavioral systems, optogenetic manipulations, and statistical
methods for the analysis and modeling of data. This research will be
supported by state-of-the-art facilities in the Canadian Centre for
Behavioural Neuroscience, including advanced two-photon imaging, voltage
sensitive dye imaging, and high density multi-unit electrophysiological
recording and optogenetic techniques.

Interested applicants must send an email to Dr. Mohajerani (
<mailto:mohajerani at uleth.ca> mohajerani at uleth.ca) and include a cover
letter, curriculum vitae, a brief statement of research interests, and
contact information of three references.
