*NIH Funded postdoctoral positions: Synaptic and network mechanisms
controlling visual perception*

The Haider Lab in the Dept. of Biomedical Engineering (BME) at Georgia Tech
& Emory University seeks 2 highly motivated and skilled postdoctoral
fellows for 3–5 year NIH BRAIN funded projects examining synaptic and
network mechanisms supporting sensory perception and visual attention.

Recent lab publications can be found here:

The projects offer significant opportunity to learn cutting-edge research
techniques *in vivo*, including 1) neural population recording with
high-density silicon electrodes, 2) optogenetic circuit manipulation, and
3) whole-cell patch-clamp recording during behavior.

The ideal candidate has expertise in patch clamp or multi-electrode
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 5 years, pending satisfactory performance
upon annual review.  We are enthusiastic to form a diverse, international
research group.   All candidates will be mentored for independent career

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 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.
