Postdoctoral position in Sensory Neuroscience

A fully funded postdoctoral position in Sensory Neuroscience is available in the laboratory of Dr. Dennis Mathew, Assistant Professor in the Dept. of Biology at the University of Nevada, Reno. A competitive starting salary plus benefits will be provided. Preferred start date is August 1, 2016. In the Mathew lab, we are interested in understanding a central question in neuroscience, which is at the core of information processing in all animals: How does a circuit of neurons translate sensory input into behavioral output? Our research focuses on functional dissection of a numerically simple olfactory circuit in the fruit fly (Drosophila melanogaster) larva. We use a combination of genetic techniques, behavioral tracking using machine vision algorithms, and electrophysiological approaches to address various outstanding questions in the field.
