About Janelia

Janelia Research Campus is a pioneering research center in Ashburn, Virginia, where scientists pursue fundamental questions in neuroscience and imaging. The Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) launched Janelia in 2006, establishing an intellectually distinctive environment for scientists to do creative, collaborative, hands-on work. To learn more about working at Janelia, visit janelia.org/careers.

Summary:
The Card Lab at HHMI’s Janelia Research center has openings for postdoctoral scientists with experience in two-photon imaging or electrophysiology to use cutting-edge techniques to investigate the neural circuits that generate flexible behaviors in Drosophila melanogaster.

The Card lab (https://www.janelia.org/lab/card-lab) is a multi-disciplinary lab using several approaches to understand how the fly generates and chooses between different behavioral responses to visual stimuli. The lab combines patch-clamp electrophysiology and calcium imaging with sophisticated high-throughput behavioral screens, genetic manipulation of activity in individual neurons, and tracing of neural circuits from electron microscope data.

We are looking for creative, independent, motivated, collaborative, and technically skilled experimentalists with a background in neurophysiology, systems neuroscience, engineering, or other related field. Hands-on experience in electrophysiology, two-photon imaging, or invertebrate physiology is a plus. Exceptional candidates will also have strong scientific programming and quantitative data analysis skills. Candidates from quantitative backgrounds (Physics/Math/Engineering) who have experience with physiology or statistical decision theory and a strong interest in neural circuits are also encouraged to apply.

Preferred Qualifications:

Ph.D. in Biology, Neuroscience, Bioengineering, Cell Biology, Genetics, Physics, Math, Engineering, or other related field, with a track record of publication in peer-reviewed journals.

Expertise and interest in one or more of the following areas:

  • Two-photon calcium imaging
  • Whole cell patch clamp electrophysiology
  • Quantitative behavioral analysis
  • Drosophila genetics
  • Matlab programming

To apply, please include your curriculum vitae and description of your research interests, and arrange for three letters of reference.
