First, happy people do better science and make better colleagues. Of course everyone wants to be happy, but the nature of science, and scientific evaluation, sometimes makes this hard. I'll work with each lab member so that we can all maintain a sense of pride with our work in the lab, even when experiments or life don't go as planned. Second, one of the core values of the lab is an emphasis on teamwork. Cooperative work has the potential to make individual efforts more fruitful, scientific practice more rigorous, and our many hours spent in the lab more enjoyable. Teamwork in the lab translates to shared authorship, open sharing of our methods, data, and findings, attending summer courses and workshops, and other measures of active engagement with the broader scientific community. Third, teamwork is not incongruent with individual responsibility and career development. To this end, I'll work with each lab member to make sure they develop an individualized career path, network, and scientific reputation. Finally, the communication of our work to the public is a part of our responsibility as government-funded scientists. Engagements with the public (outreach) will be a routine part of our work in the lab.
That's what I can offer. What I expect in return is a willingness to learn and be challenged, a willingness to give and specially to receive critical feedback, and a willingness to respect and champion other lab members.
Earliest start date: February 2024
To apply for any of the positions below: please email me your CV and a short description of your research experience, why you are interested in joining this lab specifically.
Lab Manager: A position is open for a full-time lab manager

Bachelor's degree, 3-4 years of laboratory research experience (or equivalent degree+research combination) and prior experience working with research animals is a must. Experience with histology or programming is a big plus. Pay will depend on experience. Full description here.
o succeed in the lab as a graduate student, experience with in vivo work or computer programming or electrical engineering is necessary.
Please get in touch if you're interested. In your email, include your CV, why you are specifically interested in this lab (vs other neurscience labs) and why you think your experience aligns well with the skillset required by the lab. To join the lab,
graduate students must be first admitted to the Graduate Program in Neurobiolgy & Behavior (Deadline December 1st).
Post-doc/Research Scientist: I'm looking for postdocts, or senior research scientists, with experimental and computational training. The ideal background is engineering with a strong neuroscience interest, or neuroscientists with engineering and programming expertise. Most projects include both experimental (calcium imaging/electrophysiology/behavior) and computational aspects and advanced programming in Matlab or python is a requirement.
Position is funded for 5 years.
