The Diba Lab for Neural Circuits and Memory at the University of Michigan is currently recruiting qualified graduate students. We are focused on understanding mechanisms supporting cross-regional circuit dynamics in waking and sleep and their respective roles during memory formation. We use large-scale in-vivo electrophysiology, optical imaging, circuit manipulations (including optogenetics), network modeling and extensive data analysis and machine learning tools to investigate these questions in hippocampal and cortical networks.
The preferred candidate would have experience in one or more of these areas: unit/spectral analysis, computational network modeling, electrophysiology, imaging, and/or neuroanatomy.
Please contact Kamran Diba directly kdiba[at]umich.edu and include your CV and description of your research interests and experience.
