Postdoctoral Positions in Vestibular/Sensory Neurobiology
We are enthusiastically recruiting postdoctoral scholars dedicated to investigating the cellular and electrophysiologic bases of dynamic sensory coding and hypofunction by vestibular epithelia inthe laboratory of Larry Hoffman, Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA. This work is highly translational and harbors many opportunities for developing new strategies for investigating peripheral sensory neurobiology neurorehabilitation.
Postdoctoral Scholar position in systems electrophysiology. The principal responsibilities associated with this position include single-neuron electrophysiology, vestibulo-ocular reflex recording, and computational analyses of sensory spiketrains in rodent models of peripheral vestibular hypofunction. Relevant experience should include one or more of the following: systems neurophysiology, computational neuroscience, and/or neurosensory behavioral recording and analysis.
Postdoctoral Scholar position in cellular neuroscience. The principal responsibilities associated with this position include investigating the cellular substrates of dynamic sensory coding and hypofunction. The strategies associated with this approach include immunohistochemistry, tract-tracing, high-resolution quantitative imaging, and behavioral analyses. We are seeking to incorporate contemporary methods of transcriptional analyses. The translational experimental design will integrate behavioral analyses with the analyses of cell biology. The opportunities exist to become expert in super-resolution confocal imaging and electron microscopy. Relevant experience should include one or more of the following: sensory systems neuroscience, light and electron microscopy, image analysis, and/or neurosensory behavioral recording and analyses.
These positions are available for start dates commencing on/after 1 May 2022.
Salary is commensurate with experience, but conform to the salary scale of the US National Institutes of Health for postdoctoral scholars. UCLA adheres to collective bargaining agreements for postdoctoral scholars.
