An NIH-funded postdoctoral fellow position focused on studying the hippocampal - cortical network communication is available in our laboratory. Specific emphasis will be placed on understanding the neural content and the role of hippocampal - entorhinal network during episodic memory task. This work will incorporate the use of high-density in vivo recording and optogenetics in freely behaving transgenic mice.
Candidates must hold Ph.D. and/or M.D. degree. Systems neuroscience research with a track record of leading projects to publication is preferred. Candidates who have experience with in vivo recording techniques as well as with computational / mathematical / physics background are strongly encouraged to apply. The postdoctoral fellow will be expected to direct independent projects in a multi-disciplinary setting and collaborate with the other members of the laboratory.
Interested individuals should send a CV, statement of interests, and a list of three references to Dr. Jun Yamamoto: Jun.Yamamoto@UTSouthwestern.edu
