Description

The laboratory of Tanya C. Sippy, MD, PhD seeks postdocs with a background in electrophysiology or calcium imaging to join our lab. Candidates should be interested in circuit and synaptic mechanisms underlying sensory and reward processing and addiction.

The Sippy Lab seeks to understand how the neural representation of sensory information and the actions it triggers is altered by rewards. We focus primarily on primary sensory and motor areas as well as the subcortical areas they project to, which include the dorsolateral striatum and nucleus accumbens. Since dopamine is thought to play a central role in reward-based learning, we aim to understand how this neurotransmitter affects neural activity at the single cell and circuit level.

Positions are available immediately for postdocs with a recent PhD. All inquiries should be sent to tanya.sippy@nyulangone.org.
