Postdoctoral fellowship positions are available in the Cellular Neurophysiology Unit at the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS). The mission of the lab is to understand the biophysical principles that underlie reward and motor signaling in the basal ganglia with a focus on dopamine-releasing neurons in the midbrain. Applicants interested in single cell imaging of dopaminergic neurons during reward and aversive behaviors are strongly encouraged to apply.
Candidates should have a PhD, MD or equivalent with less than 4 years of experience and an established publication record. Candidates should also have experience in imaging, electrophysiology and/or behavioral analysis.
