Wed Apr 13 19:14:12 -04 2022
Postdoctoral position for a neuroscientist available in the School of
Optometry at the University of California, Berkeley.
Position is supported by National Eye Institute funding. The central goals
are to further our understanding of the neural basis of signal processing
in the mammalian retina. The research focuses on revealing the synaptic and
circuit mechanisms that allow inhibitory interneurons to regulate the
visual information relayed by ganglion cells to higher visual centers.
Studies utilize multi-photon calcium imaging, single-cell patch-clamp
electrophysiology, immunohistochemistry and computational modeling.
Molecular approaches are used to manipulate circuits, stimulate specific
neural sub-types and target specific cell-types for recording.
Applicants must have earned a Ph.D., or foreign equivalent, in
neuroscience, molecular and cell biology, vision science, or related STEM
disciplines. Preference will be given to applicants with a background in
neuroscience, especially the visual system, and with experience in
electrophysiology, imaging, or application of molecular/genetic
approaches. Experience with programming, neural modeling, and data
analysis is advantageous.
For informal enquiries, further information, or applications please email
Rowland Taylor (wrtaylor at berkeley.edu). Applications should include your
curriculum vitae, a statement of research experience and interests, and
contact information for three referees.
