March 2021: Postdoc positions available
Who we are:
The Yang Lab at the University of California-Riverside is seeking candidates to fill 1-2 postdoc positions. We are especially looking for candidates with slice electrophysiology background. Our lab is uniquely positioned to combine state-of-the-art recording and manipulation techniques with computational modeling to address important questions in systems neuroscience.
Our current research is focused on the functions of subcortical neuromodulatory circuits (e.g., McBurney-Lin et al., Neuroscience & Biobehavioral Reviews 2019; McBurney-Lin et al., Neuropharmacology 2020; Yang et al., eLife 2021). We employ multi-disciplinary approaches, including in vivo patch-clamp and multi-channel electrophysiology, calcium imaging, optogenetics, chemogenetics, quantitative animal behavior and computational modeling to understand the cellular and circuit mechanisms underlying neuromodulatory regulation of sensory processing and decision-making in mice.
Who you are:
Ph.D. degree or equivalent in neuroscience or related disciplines
Solid experience in slice electrophysiology or in vivo calcium imaging
Less than 3 years of postdoctoral training are preferred
What we offer:
Excellent opportunities to advance your academic career
Excellent training in technical and analytical skills
Vibrant and dynamic research environment
Collaborations with neural computation, human brain imaging and biophysics labs in California and other international institutes
Above NIH-pay-scale postdoc salary
How to apply:
