The Evans Lab at Georgetown University is looking for a post-doctoral fellow for cellular and systems neuroscience research in an NIH BRAIN Initiative-funded position.
This post-doc will use electrophysiology and two-photon calcium imaging with simultaneous optogenetics to probe dendritic integration and circuitry of the extended basal ganglia including brainstem and dopaminergic neurons of the substantia nigra pars compacta in healthy and Parkinson’s Disease model mice. In addition, in vivo optogenetics and fiber photometry will be used to probe these circuits during behavior.
Experience in electrophysiology and/or microscopy is a plus, but we can train a highly-motivated person on these techniques. Start date is flexible.
Please see the Evans lab website: https://sites.google.com/view/evans-lab/home and contact Dr. Evans at firstname.lastname@example.org with a letter of interest and CV.
