Postdoctoral / Research Specialist position in Neural Circuits and Behavior
The Reiser lab at the Janelia Research Campus (https://www.janelia.org/lab/reiser-lab) seeks a creative scientist to join us in figuring out how the fly brain uses visual information to control behavior.
We use behavioral, anatomical, imaging, electrophysiological, and computational methods to understand the neural circuits for vision and navigation in Drosophila. This is an exciting time to be working on the fly brain—full brain connectomes and precise genetic access to nearly every cell type in the brain are on the horizon. We pair these tools with high-throughput, high-content exploration of Drosophila behaviors. In this position, you would apply these methods to deeply map behavioral circuits. Many project directions are possible that are related to active research topics in the lab:
• visual motion guided behaviors
• visual place learning
• central modulation of vision
• A keen interest in figuring out the brain.
• Ph.D. in experimental biology, neuroscience, or a quantitative field.
• Familiarity with scientific computing environments
• Experience in some of these areas: instrumentation, computer vision, and machine learning, neurophysiology, animal behavior, Drosophila molecular/genetic methods, neuroanatomy.
Janelia is a unique, exciting research environment near Washington, D.C., with abundant opportunities for collaboration and learning new things. Interested applicants should apply by email; please include your curriculum vitae and research interests and arrange for three letters of reference to be sent to reiserm at janelia.hhmi.org.
The Reiser lab is committed to maintaining a diverse and inclusive environment. Members of groups underrepresented in science are especially encouraged to apply. HHMI is an equal opportunity employer.
