The Diba Lab for Neural Circuits and Memory at the University of Michigan is currently looking for a qualified postdoctoral scholar. 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 (in collaboration with Dr. Sen Cheng’s Lab at Ruhr University-Bochum) and extensive data analysis 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, neuroanatomy. Postdocs will provide scientific input in the project and will be trained with the goal of becoming independent investigators.
Please contact Kamran Diba directly kdiba[at]umich.edu and include your CV and description of your research interests and experience. Salaries will follow the National Research Service Awards (NRSA) postdoctoral payscale.
