We are recruiting a postdoctoral fellow.



We are excited to announce an opening for a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in our laboratory. This position is pivotal to our newly funded research project on hippocampal-neocortical interactions essential for memory processes. The selected candidate will spearhead a project employing cutting-edge calcium imaging techniques, including miniaturized microscope and fiber photometry, alongside targeted chemogenetic interventions in murine models. This research aims to uncover the contribution of the lateral entorhinal cortex to modulating hippocampal and prefrontal ensemble activity supporting memory encoding and retrieval.

 

The successful applicant will join a dynamic team, collaborating with two graduate students proficient in data analysis and behavioral assays in rodents. The role demands exceptional proficiency in stereotaxic surgeries, viral vector gene delivery optimization, and histological analysis. A key responsibility will include mentoring the graduate students and enhancing their surgical and histology skills. In parallel, the successful applicant will have an opportunity to learn calcium imaging and sophisticated analysis of neural activity. We foster a collaborative environment where each member's contribution is vital to our collective success. The position will initially be for one year with the possibility of renewal.


Applicants should have a Ph.D. in a neuroscience-related field within the last 5 years. Preference will be given to applicants who have experience in the following techniques: stereotaxic surgery in mice, viral mediated gene manipulations, and histology.

 Interested applicants should e-mail a CV and brief cover letter with contact information for 2 references to Professor Kaori Takehara-Nishiuchi (kaori.nishiuchi@utoronto.ca).
