We provide a highly interactive, dynamic, supportive environment for neuroscience research. Research positions are often open for postdoctoral researchers, PhD students, and undergraduates. Research areas include cellular physiology (synaptic physiology, pharmacology, plasticity, whole-cell recording in vitro and in vivo, 2-photon calcium imaging), systems neuroscience (sensory physiology, neurophysiological recording during behavior), computational neuroscience (quantitative analysis of sensory coding and natural spike trains), and developmental neuroscience (postnatal development and plasticity of cortical circuits and sensory maps). Postdocs and PhD students from all quantitative scientific disciplines are encouraged to apply. Applications for postdoctoral positions should include a CV and names of two references.
Undergraduates who are interested in neurophysiology, animal behavior, or microscopy may apply for research internships or assistantships. In these positions, students assist PhD students and postdocs in ongoing research. A commitment of 2 semesters is required. Independent research is available for successful students.
