The Zador lab has an opening for a postdoctoral fellow in neuroscience who will be part of the International Brain Laboratory (IBL). The IBL (https://www.internationalbrainlab.com/) is a new large-scale international collaboration in brain research, which combines the efforts of approximately 50 scientists in 22 laboratories toward understanding the brain-wide basis of a complex behavior.
The project will involve combining new technologies developed in the Zador lab, including BARseq and MAPseq, with multiphoton imaging in the context of the IBL decision-making task. The overall goal is to relate single neuron connectivity, gene expression and activity in the context of this behavior, to better understand the contributions of different neuronal types to this task. The project will involve a combination of in vivo and in vitro imaging, data analysis and computational approaches.
CSHL and The International Brain Laboratory recognize that in our society, individuals and groups are discriminated against both directly and indirectly on the grounds of: age, disability, gender identity, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race (including ethnic origin, nationality and colour), religion or belief, sex and sexual orientation. Our collaboration is committed to opposing all forms of discrimination, raising awareness and tackling the causes and consequences of discrimination. We pledge to provide a learning and working environment in which the rights and dignity of all members are respected and which is free from discrimination, prejudice, intimidation and all forms of harassment including bullying; to making a diverse mix of talented people feel valued, motivated and enabled to do their best work and to creating a safe, welcoming working environment accessible to all. We encourage individuals who will contribute to achieving these aims to apply.
