Postdoctoral and Graduate Student Positions 

University of British Columbia.

Using an approach which combines calcium imaging and patch clamp recording of miniature 
excitatory synaptic currents (Science 263: 529-532, 1994; Neuron 15: 159-168, 1995), we have 
recorded synaptic responses from single identified synapses.  Future experiments will be directed 
towards simultaneously imaging pre and postsynaptic function at a single synapse to evaluate 
factors that control release probability in central neurons.  Excellence in electrophysiology or 
imaging is desired.  The University exercises a Canadian-first policy, however non-Canadians are 
encouraged to apply.  Positions are available immediately, although those who have not yet 
completed their training can apply in advance.
