Postdoctoral position in auditory neuroscience at University of Pennsylvania


Postdoctoral fellow:

Postdoctoral positions are available at the Laboratory of Auditory Coding at the University of 
Pennsylvania School of Medicine to study encoding of natural sounds by multi-neuronal 
assemblies in the auditory cortex of awake rodents.  We invite applications from talented and 
motivated candidates with (or expecting) a Ph.D. in life sciences interested in:

-electrophysiology and imaging: multi-neuronal recordings in behaving rodents

-molecular biology: optogenetic manipulations targeting specific neuronal subtypes

-theory and computation: sound analysis and analysis of dynamics in cortical networks

Strong computational skills and experience in sensory neuroscience are a strong plus. Our 
laboratory is part of the Hearing Sciences Center at the Department of Otorhinolaryngology, the 
Department of Neuroscience and the Mahoney Institute of Neurological Sciences. UPenn has a very 
active neuroscience community, and there will be ample opportunity for collaboration both within 
the department and with faculty in biology, physics and engineering.

Please submit your application, including a CV, a brief statement of past and future research 
interests, links to recent publications, and recommendation letters (a letter from Ph.D. advisor is 
required) to mgeffen@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx
