Postdoctoral positions are available to study neuronal networks in mouse visual cortex using synaptic Channelrhodopsin-Assisted Circuit Mapping (sCRACM). The initial focus will be on studying synaptic inputs from intracortical pathways to excitatory and inhibitory neurons in slices. Applicants must hold a Ph.D. or M.D./Ph.D. degree and have a strong background in neurophysiology or engineering; prior experience in whole-cell patch clamp recordings, optogenetics and Matlab would also be helpful.
The available positions present exceptional opportunities for a recent Ph.D. or M.D./Ph.D. with interests in joining an interdisciplinary research program including anatomists, electrophysiologists and microscopists in a stimulating and highly interactive environment. In addition, Washington University offers an outstanding scientific and professional environment for postdoctoral training.
Interested applicants should submit a letter of interest, curriculum vitae and the names of two individuals who have agreed to write letters of reference to: Andreas Burkhalter, PhD, Washington University School of Medicine, Dept. of Anatomy & Neurobiology 8108, 660 S. Euclid Ave, St. Louis, MO 63110. To apply by email, submit the information on one PDF by clicking APPLY NOW below.
