Postdoc Opening

Investigator: Wei Li, Ph.D.
Affiliation:Retinal Synapses and Circuits for Vision
Position Type:Postdoctoral Fellowship

A postdoctoral position in retinal neuroscience is available in the Unit on Retinal Neurophysiology, National Eye Institute ( Our lab conducts research on retinal synapses, circuits and their functions in visual signal processing. Ongoing and future research subjects include: 1) Color vision: retinal circuits involved in the processing of the blue cone signals. 2) Hibernation: adaptive changes of synaptic structures and functions in the ground squirrel retina. Candidates with expertise in these areas are encouraged to apply: patch clamp recording, two-photon live cell/tissue imaging, MEA, and modeling. Programming experience with Igor Pro, Metlab, or C++ is highly desirable. Salary will be commensurate with level of experience according to NIH guidelines ( The NIH host one of the largest neuroscience research centers in the world. The NEI has state-of-the-art core facilities including imaging, genetic engineering, and virus delivery facilities. The overall resources and training opportunities are superb for a postdoctoral fellow.
