Are you an energetic and enthusiastic individual who is passionate about learning and interested in neuroscience? Do you want to gain hands-on experience in a laboratory that studies how networks of neurons communicate to control behavior?

Our research lab is seeking motivated postdoctoral scholars to join our team. As a postdoctoral scholar, you will work closely with a team of scientists to investigate how the brain controls behavior through the activity of networks of neurons. You will have the opportunity to gain experience in a range of techniques, including microscopy, electrophysiology, and behavioral assays.

The ideal candidate will have a PhD and strong experience in neuroscience, photonics, or engineering with a strong experience in performing research in a laboratory setting. We also welcome applications from individuals who are new to the field and eager to learn.

In addition to a passion for science and a strong work ethic, the ideal candidate will possess excellent organizational and communication skills, attention to detail, and the ability to work independently as well as part of a team.

This is an exciting opportunity to gain hands-on experience in a cutting-edge research laboratory and contribute to our understanding of how the brain controls behavior. If you are an energetic and enthusiastic individual who is eager to learn, we encourage you contact us!
