OPENING FOR POSTDOC
Applications are invited for a postdoctoral scholar position. We are
looking for a highly motivated, exceptionally bright, and
collaborative candidate with a strong background in wet neuroscience.
Description: The position will involve research into
fundamental neural circuit mechanisms of stimulus selection and
spatial attention. The research will span two model systems - barn
owls, and mice - and will start with experiments in owls. A
demonstrable history of insightful research in (animal) neuroscience
will be valued highly. A background in in
vivo techniques for measurement and manipulation of neural
activity (such as electrophysiology, calcium imaging, optogenetics),
experience in animal behavior, and a facility with programming and
quantitative methods will all be strong pluses. Key assets of the
postdoc will be the desire as well as ability to think deeply about
questions in neuroscience, and the drive to perform creative and
impactful research experiments; a PhD is required.
The postdoc will plug into a vibrant community of world-class
neuroscientists at Hopkins, where the research environment is
collegial, nurturing, and collaborative.
The position is funded for at least three years, with an initial
one-year appointment and expectation of annual extensions contingent
on satisfactory progress.
