We are always looking for talented, motivated, team-oriented people.
Undergraduates and graduate students are welcomed, please email me.
Post-Doc in Rodent Neurophysiology and Behavior
This position has the specific focus of recording from multiple cortical areas during a novel 3D rat reaching task we have recently developed (see R&D section). Our goal is to understand the functional organization and dynamic coordination of distributed cortical networks producing complex behaviors. Development and application of methods to understand network-level phenomena will be performed in collaboration with other lab members. Utilization of optogenetics for manipulation of specific neural circuits underlying behaviors is a goal, as is testing novel multi-thousand channel neural recordings systems.

Post-Doc in Neural Dynamics Analysis
This position will work at the interface of dynamical systems, statistical machine learning, and neural time-series data. The goal is to better understand mechanisms underlying flexible network coordination in the brain. This position will focus on developing and applying methods to analyze neurophysiological signals from diverse brain areas, with specific focus to data collected from the rat sensorimotor cortex during arm reaching from the Bouchard lab. The post-doc will advance the state of the art in analysis methods to characterize brain dynamics and understand distributed computations in diverse brains areas. State-space modeling approaches will be integrated with emerging unsupervised learning and supervised inference procedures. This position will include a strong collaboration with both basic and clinical neuroscience labs across UCSF, UC Berkeley, and LBNL.
