postdoctoral position in Systems Neuroscience at the University of Pennsylvania

University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia PA

A postdoctoral position is available in the Laboratory of Auditory Coding under direction of Dr. Maria Neimark Geffen at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine to study the neural mechanisms of hearing and emotional learning in the auditory cortex of awake rodents.  We invite applications from talented, energetic and enthusiastic candidates with (or expecting) a Ph.D. in life sciences. The techniques include electrophysiological recordings, imaging and optogenetics in awake behaving rodents. Experience in either electrophysiology, imaging or behavioral studies is required. Computational skills are a plus. Please visit http://www.med.upenn.edu/hearing for more information.

Our laboratory is part of the Hearing Sciences Center a at the Department of Otorhinolaryngology, Department of Neuroscience and the Mahoney Institute of Neurological Sciences. University of Pennsylvania has a very interactive and diverse systems neuroscience community. The University of Pennsylvania is within walking distance of the downtown of Philadelphia, which provides for a vibrant cultural urban environment.

Please submit your application, including a CV, a brief statement of past and future research interests, links to recent publications, and recommendation letters (a letter from Ph.D. advisor is required) to Dr. Maria Neimark Geffen at mgeffen@xxxxxxxxxxxxx .
