Fresco Institute Postdoctoral Research Fellows
We are delighted to announce the availability of two Marlene & Paolo Fresco Institute Research Fellowships to start June 1, 2016.
Laboratory of Nic Tritsch
We are currently seeking talented, motivated and creative postdocs to join our team to study how the basal ganglia contribute to the selection, execution and reinforcement of motor actions in mice. Our studies span several levels of analyses, from synapses to circuits, and utilize diverse experimental approaches (both in vitro and in vivo), including whole-cell electrophysiology, two-photon imaging, fiber photometry, optogenetics and behavioral analyses. Interested candidates with experience in molecular biology, electrophysiology, cellular imaging and/or rodent behavior are particularly encouraged to apply by sending a brief statement of research interests, CV and the names and contact information of three reference writers to Nic Tritsch.
Laboratory of Biyu He
A post-doctoral position is available starting in January 2016, in Dr. Biyu Jade He’s laboratory at the Neuroscience Institute and Departments of Neurology, Neuroscience and Physiology, and Radiology at NYU Langone Medical Center, New York University. Our research focus is on understanding the neural bases of perceptual awareness using a combination of multimodal imaging in humans and computational neuroscience approaches. In addition, we actively seek applications of our research in neurological and psychiatric medicine.
The successful candidate should have a Ph.D. in a specialty related to MRI/fMRI, MEG, EEG, ECoG, brain stimulation and/or computational neuroscience, should be able to work independently and have good quantitative, analytical and programing skills. Experience in systems, cognitive, and/or computational neuroscience is desirable.
Resources are extensive at NYU Langone Medical Center. Our group has access to 3T and 7T MRI, MEG, human intracranial recordings (ECoG, depth recordings), and TMS. We also have a state-of-the-art EEG/tDCS/psychophysics laboratory with eye-tracking capability. The salary and benefits for the position are highly competitive.
Applicants should send a CV and contact information for three referees to Dr. Biyu J. He (Website: http://neuroscience.nih.gov/ninds/he/), with subject line “Post-doc application 2015”. Review of applications will be ongoing, starting from October 1st, 2015 until the position is filled. Applicants are encouraged to apply as soon as possible.
Laboratory of Einar Sigurdsson
A candidate with a recent Ph.D. degree (zero-three years postdoc experience) and a strong background in research on the biology of antibodies is sought to participate in NIH-funded studies related to Alzheimer’s disease. Creativity, fluent English, and excellent writing skills are desirable.
To apply and for further information, please contact Einar Sigurdsson.
Laboratory of Dayu Lin
We are currently seeking to fill one to two postdoctoral positions to study the neural circuits underlying mouse social behaviors. Projects will involve in vivo electrophysiological recording, viral-mediated functional manipulation and mouse behavioral assays. Potential candidates must be highly self-motivated and enthusiastic about taking on new challenges. Preferred candidates should have experiences in electrophysiology, data analysis and mouse behavioral assays. Candidates with strong background in other fields (e.g. molecular biology, physics or mathematics) who are interested in understanding brain circuits are also welcome to apply. Interested candidates should send their resume/CV and the names and contact information of 2-3 references to Dayu Lin.
Laboratory of Michael Long
We are currently seeking to fill one postdoctoral position to study the neural circuits underlying precise motor timing in the song control pathway of the zebra finch. Projects will involve electrophysiology (both in vitro and in vivo) and behavioral analysis as well as the possibility of adopting molecular and/or florescence imaging approaches. Talented, creative, and motivated individuals are invited to join the team. Interested candidates should send their resume/CV and the names and contact information of 2-3 references to Michael Long.
Laboratory of Robert Froemke
We are always looking for talented and creative postdocs with electrophysiology experience. But regardless of your background or expertise, feel free to contact us about a potential position at NYU. Please email.
Laboratory of Dmitry Rinberg
Postdoctoral positions are available in the Rinberg lab at the NYU Neuroscience Institute. The lab is using electrophysiology, optogenetics,and psychophysics to understand the principles of the sensory information processing. Specifically, we are focused on two questions: 1) how is odor information coded in the brain of the awake, behaving mouse? and 2) how is information relevant to animal behavior extracted by the brain? Postdoctoral researchers engage in both experimental and computational studies of multineuronal coding in awake, behaving mice. These include, but are not limited to measurement and analysis of electrophysiological signals from olfactory bulb and olfactory cortices, olfactory psychophysical experiments, developing of optogenetic approaches, and combination of imaging with electrophysiological methods. Interested candidates should send their resume/CV and three reference letters to Dmitry Rinberg.
