Neural Circuits for Social Behavior The Falkner Lab at the Princeton Neuroscience Institute is seeking several highly motivated postdoctoral or more senior researcher to research social decision-making circuits in behaving mice, using high-density extracellular physiology, imaging, perturbation, quantitative behavior analysis, and modeling. Successful applicants will design a research program focused around understanding how social interactions change subcortical computations, leading to changes in sensory processing and behavior. Ideal candidates should be engaged and willing to learn new techniques as well as develop new behavioral assays. We welcome applicants with diverse quantitative backgrounds, including, but not limited to neuroscience, biology, and engineering. Start date for the position is as early as Sept 1, 2018. For more information about our lab and current projects, visit our webpage: and to inquire about the position please contact Annegret Falkner at [email protected] The term of this appointment is for one year, with the possibility of renewal based upon satisfactory performance and funding. Qualifications A Ph.D. in neuroscience or a related field is required. Previous experience in neurophysiology or imaging, behavior, computational modeling, and MATLAB or Python proficiency is desirable, though we also welcome applicants with experience in molecular biology. We are a new lab with diverse interests and all enthusiastic candidates with a doctoral degree and interest in social decision-making circuits are encouraged to apply. Interested applicants must apply at and include a cover letter stating background and professional interests, a CV including all publications, and contact information for three references.
