We have a postdoc position in our CU Neurophotonics group in beautiful Colorado!
The Neurophotonics group at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus seeks to hire a highly motivated postdoctoral fellow with experience in patch clamp, multiphoton calcium imaging and in vivo surgical procedures. The individual will interact with engineers and physicists in the development of a multiphoton fiber coupled microscope (FCM) using electrowetting (EW) lens technology funded under an NIH BRAIN Initiative grant. The postdoctoral fellow will work in a fast-paced multidisciplinary team of engineers, neuroscientists and physicists, participating in development of the device and also developing their own research project on olfactory sensation and decision making. The CU Neurophotonics group is a vibrant group with state of the art research on photonics and systems neuroscience including development of cutting edge devices such as EW fiber coupled microscopy, three photon microscopy and automated light sheet multiplexed in situ hybridization combined with studies of the circuit basis of neural processes such as sensory decision making, behavioral disorders caused by demyelination and autism spectrum disorder.
CU Anschutz Medical Campus is the premier research university in Colorado. The new Anschutz Medical Campus includes over 5 million square feet of research, educational and clinical space on 227 acres. The campus is minutes away from downtown Denver. Students, staff and faculty have access to a broad array of academic, professional, community, recreational and cultural opportunities. The University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus is dedicated to ensuring a safe and secure environment for our faculty, staff, students, and visitors. To assist in achieving that goal, we conduct background investigations for all prospective employees prior to their employment.
The University of Colorado is committed to diversity and equality in education and employment. We encourage applications from women, ethnic minorities, persons with disabilities, and all veterans.
