Description

We invite applications for three postdoc positions in the research group led by Dr. Ayumu Tashiro at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore. Our work focuses on the function of hippocampal circuitry through a multi-disciplinary approach combining virus-mediated genetic manipulation, optogenetics, behavioral analysis and electrophysiological/imaging techniques.

Successful candidates will investigate 1) Cellular mechanisms underlying spatial representation in the hippocampus of free behaving rodents, using electrophysiological or calcium imaging techniques, 2) synaptic connections of newly-generated neurons in the dentate gyrus, using patch clamp recording and optogenetics in brain slices, 3) Activity-dependent regulation of adult neurogenesis in the dentate gyrus of behaving mice using in vivo imaging techniques.
