Employer: Fioravante Lab, Center for Neuroscience, UC Davis
Job Title: Neuroscience Postdoctoral Fellowship
Salary: Commensurate with the current NIH scale, full health benefits
The Fioravante lab in the Center for Neuroscience at the University of California Davis investigates how foundational neural primitives such as prediction and valence are implemented by mammalian microcircuits to support emotional and cognitive intelligence. We focus on the cerebellum, the non-motor functions of which lack mechanistic understanding. By dissecting the operating principles of novel long-range cerebello-limbic circuits and their synaptic and molecular elements, we shed light on the functionality of these circuits and aspire to explain how their perturbations contribute to brain disorders. Our toolbox includes transgenic/knockout mouse models, viral tracing methods, slice and in vivo electrophysiology, optogenetics, patch-seq approaches, advanced imaging including calcium imaging, and animal behavior assays.
We are looking for a creative, highly motivated postdoctoral fellow to join our group. The candidate should have a PhD in neuroscience. A background in electrophysiology is strongly desired, as is experience with anatomical approaches, transcriptomics or rodent behavior. Applicants should have demonstrated productivity. International applicants proficient in oral and written English are welcome to apply.
The position is fully funded by a 5-year NIH grant. This is a full-time position, with salary commensurate to NIH scale and health benefits. The fellow will join the postdoctoral training program at the Center for Neuroscience and will benefit from a dynamic and highly collaborative environment, as well as opportunities to interact with the extended scientific community at UC Davis and the Bay area. UC Davis ranks among the top 10 public research universities in the US.
Interested candidate postdocs should e-mail a CV and a brief cover letter with contact information for two references to Dr. Diasynou Fioravante. UC Davis is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer. Women and minorities are encouraged to apply.
