Postdoc: Electrophysiology, Neural Dynamics
The postdoc will be involved in experimental studies of mechanisms of spike
synchronization and central pattern generation in defined neural circuits
using "dynamic clamp" techniques. Position requires a PhD in neuroscience,
biophysics, physiology, biomedical engineering, or related disciplines.
REQUIRED: experience in conventional in vitro cellular electrophysiology
techniques (current clamp, voltage clamp, extracellular recording)
- molluscan neurobiology (especially gastropods: Helisoma, Lymnaea, Aplysia)
- computer skills (esp Linux)
- invertebrate cell culturing
- exposure or experience in computational modeling
This is an ideal experience for a recent graduate who wants to learn
techniques integrating modeling and experimental approaches. The candidate
will work in an exciting environment with close proximity to other research
groups with related work in neuromorphic VLSI and nonlinear dynamics applied
to neurobiology. Salary is dependent on experience and on par with NIH
scales. The position is for 2-4 years.
