Postdoctoral Research Associate

Job description

Princeton University

A number of postdoctoral or more senior research positions in neural circuits are available in the laboratory of Sebastian Seung at the Princeton Neuroscience Institute. The researchers will apply cutting-edge neuroanatomical techniques for observing brain structure, including serial electron microscopy, whole-brain light microscopy, viral labeling, and immunolabeling. The researchers will be members of a multidisciplinary team. Through collaborations with physiology labs, anatomical studies will be combined with optogenetics and/or two-photon microscopy. Computational lab members will assist with image analysis, enabling a "big data" approach to neuroanatomy. Application domains may include retina, olfactory cortex, and neocortex. These full-time positions have an initial appointment of one year and possibility of renewal based on satisfactory performance and funding availability. See for an example of a recent publication relating structure and function of neural circuits. Essential qualifications: -Ph.D. in Neuroscience or other closely related field Preferred qualifications: -electron microscopy, light microscopy -viral labeling, immunolabeling -stereotaxic surgery -MATLAB, Python, image analysis software (e.g. FIJI/ImageJ) -strong quantitative skills Interested applicants must apply online at and include a CV, cover letter or statement of research interests. Also include the names and contact information for at least 2 references. This position is subject to the University's background check policy.
