Postdoctoral Research Position

Postdoctoral position in cellular and systems neuroscience

We are looking for a recent Ph.D. graduate to investigate the synaptic connectivity and experience-dependent plasticity of neocortical neurons, using state-of-the-art electrophysiological and anatomical techniques. We are developing quantitative, automated behavioral training platforms and new methods for cell-type specific, high-throughput assessment of synapse properties. The ideal candidate will have experience in cellular electrophysiology or rodent anatomy and behavior, as well as data analysis and programming skills. Please send your CV and a cover letter indicating your interest and relevant training to barth@cmu.edu
