Neuroscience Postdoctoral Fellowship- Electrophysiology

Employer: Fioravante Lab, Center for Neuroscience, UC Davis (www.fioravantelab.ucdavis.edu)

Job Title: Neuroscience Postdoctoral Fellowship- Electrophysiology 

Salary: Commensurate with the current NIH scale, full health benefits

Work Location: Davis, CA 

PT/FT: Full Time 

The Fioravante lab in the Center for Neuroscience at the University of California Davis studies neural microcircuits mediating behavior, learning and memory. We are particularly interested in understanding the principles that govern the activity-dependent formation of anatomical and dynamic functional ensembles at the level of synaptic and cellular circuits, and relating them to behavior. Our toolbox includes transgenic/knockout mouse models, viral tracing methods, slice and in vivo electrophysiology, optogenetics, patch-seq approaches, advanced imaging, and animal behavior assays.  

We are looking for a creative, highly motivated postdoctoral fellow to join our group. The candidate should have a PhD in neuroscience or a related field with background in electrophysiology. Experience with anatomical approaches or rodent behavior highly desirable. Applicants should have demonstrated productivity. International applicants proficient in oral and written English are welcome to apply. 

**Dr. Fioravante will be at SfN in San Diego and interviewing candidates for this position**

 The position is fully funded by NSF and NIH grants. This is a full-time position, with salary commensurate to NIH scale and health benefits. The fellow will join the postdoctoral training program at the Center for Neuroscience and will benefit from a dynamic and highly collaborative environment, as well as opportunities to interact with the extended scientific community at UC Davis and the Bay area. UC Davis ranks among the top 10 public research universities in the US.

 Interested candidate postdocs should e-mail a CV and a brief cover letter with contact information for two references to Dr. Diasynou Fioravante (dfioravante@ucdavis.edu). UC Davis is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer.
