The Adaptive Motor Control Laboratory at the Rowland Institute at Harvard is accepting applications for a fully funded post-doc position (earliest start date is Sept 2017). The goal of the laboratory is to reverse engineer the neural circuits that drive adaptive motor behavior. We use mice as a model system, and perform recordings during behavior (calcium imaging and electrophysiology), anatomical tracing, perturbation techniques (opto- and chemogenetics), as well as computational modeling.
We are particularly interested in scientists with experience in mouse behavior, 2-photon imaging and/or in vivo electrophysiology. We are also interested in a person wanting to focus on building computational models applicable to motor control, adaptation, and large scale high-dimensional data from mutli-photon imaging.
The ideal candidate will have a strong publication record in these areas, and familiarity with a programming language is preferred (LabView, Python, and/or Matlab).
Harvard University is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer. Women and minorities are especially encouraged to apply.
