Rayshubskiy lab postdoc candidate search
What happens in the brain when an animal is committed to a behavioral goal? Through this question our lab is looking to uncover the neural architecture underlying motor control during persistent behavioral states using the fruit fly, Drosophila, as a model system. Our hypotheses will in part be guided by lessons learned from robotic control systems. Robots and animals are faced with fundamentally similar executive and motor control problems, except unlike animal brains, architectures of robotic control systems are typically known. These architectures can teach us about challenges and constraints that neural control systems have evolved to resolve.
We invite postdoctoral candidates with a background or strong interest in experimental systems neuroscience to apply. An interest in robotic architectures is encouraged, but not required. Applicants will benefit from extensive instrumentation core facilities at the Rowland Institute and a vibrant scientific community at Harvard and Boston at large. Salary is competitive and comprehensive benefits packages are offered to all Harvard University postdocs. Applications will be considered until the positions are filled.
