Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position in the computational and experimental neuroscience laboratory at the University of Arizona (Fellous laboratory, link below). The applicant will lead a project designed to understand the network computations performed within the ventral tegmental area of the rat. The applicant will use a combination of in vivo behaving (tetrodes), in vitro patch clamp and computational modeling techniques.

The laboratory is part of a highly interactive environment (Neural Systems Memory and Aging, and E.F. McKnight Brain Institute), and the successful candidate will be expected to develop collaborations with other laboratories (local collaborators include: Bruce McNaughton, Carol Barnes, Michael Frank, Ed French, Katalin Gothard and Lynn Nadel).
The applicant should have some training in neurophysiology and data analyses, and a strong motivation for collaborative work. A general background of research in neuromodulation or specifically in the dopaminergic system is desirable. Start date is negotiable, salary is competitive. Please send a CV, a brief statement of research interests and the names of three references to Jean-Marc Fellous: fellous at
