How do we stop? Hnasko lab at University of California San Diego (Neurosciences, hnaskolab.ucsd.edu) is inviting applications for a postdoctoral fellow to study the role of subthalamic nucleus and connected neural circuits in behavioral control using optogenetics, behavioral assays, and calcium imaging in mice. This is an exciting opportunity to be a part of a funded project with a strong theoretical framework and a conceptual team that spans mouse and human circuits: https://projectreporter.nih.gov/project_info_description.cfm?aid=9693340&icde=44807643.
Applicants with experience and expertise in rodent cognitive behavioral assays, in vivo imaging, basal ganglia circuits, and the analysis of complex or time-series data arrays are particularly welcome. Experience with electrophysiological and histochemical approaches is also a plus. Evidence of productivity during prior scientific training is required, including high-quality first-author publications in peer-reviewed journals.
