The emergence of new optical technologies combined with molecular sensors and advanced computational tools have led to major advances of our understanding of how the circuitry and dynamics of neuronal population give rise to brain functions and behavior.
The Vaziri Lab of Neurotechnology and Biophysics (LNB) has a major focus on the development and application of advanced optical imaging technologies with applications for systems neuroscience. Over the last few years the lab has developed a portfolio of optical techniques that allow near-simultaneous stimulation [1, 2] and functional imaging of neuronal activity on the whole-brain level at single-cell level in small model organisms [3, 4] and more recently in the more scattering rodent brain [5-8].
To further push the boundaries of neurotechnology development and brain-imaging, we are seeking to fill a leadership role in the LNB who can develop an independent and highly synergistic research program aligned with the ongoing efforts in the laboratory.The successful candidate will be imbedded in LNB benefiting from the existing laboratory infrastructure and scientific environment while leading a team supported by independently as well as jointly acquired external funding. Possible areas of the focus of the research program of the applicants may include but are not limited to:
Depending on the candidates qualifications and scientific achievements the initial appointment can be made as a (Senior) Research Associate or Research Assistant / Associate Professor.Appointment as a Research Assistant / Associate Professor will be subject to successful review by a university committee.
How to Apply
