Sawtell Laboratory
A postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Nathaniel Sawtell in the Department of Neuroscience at Columbia University. The laboratory is studying the circuit mechanisms for adaptive sensory processing in cerebellum-like structures and the cerebellum in both weakly electric fish and mice using in vivo electrophysiological and optical imaging methods along with computational modeling (J Neurosci 28:1598-612, 2008; Annu Rev Neurosci, 31:1-24, 2008; Neuron 66:573-84, 2010).  The successful candidate will have a PhD in neuroscience or a related discipline and a proven track record in electrophysiological and/or imaging experiments.  Applications should include a CV and two references. The application should be directed to:
