Description

WHO WE ARE:
The Yang Lab at the University of California Riverside is seeking talented, highly motivated candidates to fill 1-2 postdoc positions. 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 main interest is in neuromodulatory functions. We employ multi-disciplinary approaches, including in vivo patch-clamp recording, population-scale recording, optogenetics, chemogenetics, quantitative animal behavior and computational modeling (e.g. Yang, Kwon, Severson, O’Connor, Nature Neuroscience 2016; Kwon, Yang, Minamisawa, O’Connor, Nature Neuroscience 2016; Yang, Shew, Roy, Plenz, Journal of Neuroscience 2012) to understand the cellular and circuit mechanisms underlying neuromodulatory regulation of sensory processing and decision-making in mice.

WHO YOU ARE:
- Candidates should have a Ph.D. degree or equivalent in neuroscience or related disciplines.
- Ideal candidates are expected to be highly self-motivated and have a strong desire to become independent investigators.
- Applicants with experience in electrophysiology and less than 3 years of postdoctoral training are preferred.
- Experience in in vivo two-photon calcium imaging and/or analytical skills with Matlab would be a plus, but not required.

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 Southern California and other international institutes
- Above NIH-pay-scale postdoc salary.


HOW TO APPLY:
Interested applicants should submit a single PDF including a cover letter, CV and contact information for 3 references to hongdian@ucr.edu. For additional information, please visit www.hyanglab.com.
