Multiple postdoctoral positions are available studying neural circuits and coding in the mouse olfactory system in the University of Utah Department of Neurobiology. A major focus of the laboratory is understanding how the olfactory bulb encodes and processes information in the context of natural behavior. The lab is well-equipped to support a number of potential projects depending on interest and expertise. Examples from currently-funded projects include functionally characterizing the receptor-to-glomerulus map, understanding the dynamics of odor representations and olfactory bulb circuits during natural odor sampling, and characterizing top-down modulation of sensory processing in the behaving animal. We use a combination of optical and optogenetic tools, genetic and viral targeting of defined cell types, electrophysiological recordings, and computational methods. Preparations include both anesthetized and awake behaving animals. Postdoctoral researchers will be part of a strong and diverse community of systems- and cellular-level neuroscientists at the University of Utah, with excellent resources including multiple setups for in vivo two-photon imaging, whole-cell and multichannel extracellular recordings, optogenetics and fiber photometry. Salt Lake City also provides an excellent quality of life for those with a love for the outdoors and a modest cost of living. PhD graduates with an interest in sensory systems are encouraged to apply. Experience with in vivo mammalian neurophysiology and data analysis is helpful. Interested persons should send a CV and a brief statement describing their interests and relevant experience.
