We are always looking for talented, motivated, team-oriented people to join our group!
Undergraduates and graduate students are welcomed, please email me.
Post-Doc in Biomedical Data Science:: We have a funded position for a post-doctoral scholar in biomedical data science. This position has the opportunity to analyze diverse data sets from clinical neuroscience (e.g., MRI, clinical data). The broad goal is to extract neurobiological insights from complex datasets utilizing state-of-the-art algorithms towards prediction of diverse outcomes. Examples include prediction of traumatic brain injury outcomes as well as educational outcomes of young children in financially disadvantaged countries. To apply, please send CV to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Post-Doc in single-neuron modeling for neuromorphic systems:: We have a funded position for a post-doctoral scholar in single-neuron modeling. This position will analyze, understand, and construct models of single neurons that are maximally computationally complex with minimal ‘cost’ of implementation in opto-electronic hardware. The broad goal is to extract the biophysical principles of single-neuron computational complexity towards development of novel neuromorphic chips. To apply, please send CV to: email@example.com
Post-Doc in Rodent Neurophysiology and Behavior:: We have a funded position for a post-doctoral scholar to perform neural recordings from awake behaving rodents (rats). Our group has developed a novel robotically controlled 3D rat reaching preparation with video monitoring. We have also pioneered the use of μECoG to record from hundreds of channels distributed across the cortical surface with millisecond resolution. These technologies enable us to ask how distributed neural activity is coordinated across brain areas to produce complex reaches. This position has the specific focus of collecting data using simultaneous surface/depth recordings from the rat sensorimotor cortex during complex rat reaches. Analysis of the ensuing data with state-of-the-art statistical machine learning 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 well as testing multi-thousand channel electrophysiological recording systems. To apply, please send CV to:firstname.lastname@example.org.
Research Assitant in Rodent Neurophysiology:: We have a funded position for a research assistant to perform neural recordings from rodents. Our group is developing and applying novel, massive channel count electrophysiological recording systems to understand the brain. This position has the specific focus of collecting data using simultaneous surface/depth recordings from the rat auditory cortex and assisting with rat behavioral tasks. On site, hands on training will be provided for all required surgical and experimental skills. To apply, please send CV to:email@example.com.
