A postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Fabrizio Gabbiani at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas. The lab studies mechanisms of visually guided collision avoidance at the cellular, systems, and computational level using a variety of techniques (intra-/extra- cellular recordings, calcium imaging, pharmacology, behavior using high-speed video, compartmental modeling).

The goal of the current project is to investigate how flight control and collision avoidance maneuvers are generated in freely flying animals. The postdoctoral fellow will have access to state-of-the art facilities for his/her project, and will be part of an international team based in the US and Europe. Further information about the lab can be found on our web site (http://glab.bcm.tmc.edu) and about the project by contacting Dr. Gabbiani (see below).
Applicants should have a strong work ethic, a theoretical/computational background and/or experience with electrophysiology from a neuroethological perspective. Please send CV, statement of interests and the email addresses of at least two referees to Dr. Fabrizio Gabbiani (gabbiani@bcm.edu).
