Job Description

The Zador lab has an opening for a postdoctoral fellow in neuroscience who will be part of the International Brain Laboratory (IBL). The IBL (https://www.internationalbrainlab.com/) is a new large-scale international collaboration in brain research, which combines the efforts of approximately 50 scientists in 22 laboratories toward understanding the brain-wide basis of a complex behavior.

The project will involve combining new technologies developed in the Zador lab, including BARseq and MAPseq, with multiphoton imaging in the context of the IBL task. The overall goal is to relate single neuron connectivity, gene expression and activity in the context of this behavior, to better understand the contributions of different neuronal types to this task. The project will involve a combination of imaging and data analysis. The successful candidate should have a strong background in both neuroscience and computation.

Candidates from non-traditional and/or underrepresented backgrounds, broadly defined, are strongly encouraged to apply.

Requirements

Applicants should have a PhD in Neuroscience or related fields. Expertise or previous experience in systems/computational/circuit neuroscience, including in vivo two photon imaging and behavioral training, are useful but not required. Interested candidates should e-mail their application to [email protected] as a single pdf file with subject: Postdoc Application. The application file should include: (1) CV with the publication list, (2) a brief description of research interests, (3) contact information for three references.
