*Postdoctoral position: Synaptic mechanisms controlling perception*

The Haider Lab <https://mail.google.com/mail/u/0/haider.gatech.edu> in the
Dept. of Biomedical Engineering (BME) at Georgia Tech & Emory University
seeks a highly motivated and skilled postdoctoral fellow for a 3–year
funded project examining synaptic and network mechanisms supporting sensory

The project offers significant opportunity to learn cutting-edge research
techniques *in vivo*, including neural population recording with
high-density silicon electrodes, optogenetic circuit manipulation, and
whole-cell patch-clamp recording in mice performing visual behaviors.

The ideal candidate has expertise in electrophysiology *in vitro* or *in
vivo*, and quantitative skill in data acquisition and analysis (preferably
with MATLAB).  Candidates should have excellent written and verbal
communication skills, an inquisitive mindset, and enthusiasm to work in a
multi-disciplinary team.

The position is funded for up to 3 years, pending satisfactory performance
upon annual review.  We are enthusiastic to form a diverse, international
research group.   All candidates will be mentored to obtain independent
funding as part of their career development.

There is a strong, multidisciplinary concentration of labs focusing on
@ GT <http://neuro.gatech.edu/> and at Emory
<http://biomed.emory.edu/PROGRAM_SITES/NS/>.  Atlanta is vibrant, green,
and one of the most affordable and livable major cities of the US.

Applications should include a CV, a brief statement of research goals,
expected date of availability, and names and contact information of three
references.  Please email these materials to bilal.haider at bme.gatech.edu.
The position is available starting March 2018.

The Wallace H. Coulter Dept. of Biomedical Engineering
<https://www.bme.gatech.edu/> at Georgia Tech and Emory University is an
equal opportunity employer committed to diversity.  The Department is a
unique enterprise, spanning two of the top Engineering and Medical
institutes in the country.  This environment offers unparalleled facilities
and resources for the pursuit of understanding neural circuits and their
relationship to behavior and neurological dysfunction.
