We are seeking a postdoctoral researcher to work on an NIH/NEI-funded
project aimed at determining the functions of previously uncharacterized
amacrine and ganglion cell types in the foveal and peripheral primate
retina. Our lab combines patterned light stimulation with two-photon
calcium imaging and patch-clamp electrophysiology to analyze physiological
properties of retinal neurons in an ex vivo preparation. We are using a
highly-multiplexed immunohistochemical approach to classify neuronal cell
types after physiological recordings.

The ideal candidate would have experience in one or more of the following
areas: retinal neurophysiology (patch-clamp and/or calcium imaging),
immunohistochemistry, high-resolution microscopy (e.g. light-sheet,
confocal, two-photon, super-resolution), image-based analysis, programming
in FIJI, Matlab, Igor or Python.

Interested candidates can submit informal inquiries to Teresa Puthussery (
tpu at berkeley.edu) or submit an application by providing a: (1) curriculum
vitae, (2) brief statement of research interests and (3) contact
information for three references. The position is open until a suitable
candidate is found and the first rolling deadline is Jan 18, 2020. Further
information about our research can be found here: www.retinalab.berkeley.edu
