Why join the lab?
Undergraduate and Master's Students
We currently don't have an opening for an undergraduate or Master's student. If you are interested in a potential future opportunity to gain first-hand lab experience, please feel free to reach out to me by email. Techniques range from behavioral training and activity recordings using electrophysiology and imaging to histology, computational modeling, and data analysis.
We are recruiting Ph.D. students through the Brandeis Neuroscience and Molecular and Cell Biology Graduate programs. If you are either a prospective applicant or a current student interested in rotating in the lab, please get in touch via email. We are looking forward to accepting rotation students in the academic year 2023/2024. The rotations will feature hands-on training in behavioral training and analyses, two-photon Ca2+ imaging and/or intracellular recordings in awake behaving mice.
Possible projects include:
using whole-cell recordings and two-photon Ca2+ imaging to uncover the molecular mechanisms of synaptic plasticity and its impact on learning and memory formation.
using computational modeling to study hippocampal information processing
and more: I am happy to discuss questions you are interested in pursuing
Applicants with backgrounds in neuroscience, engineering, computer science, physics, biology, psychology, or other related fields are welcome. We are especially interested in candidates who have some experience or who are interested in one or more of the following areas: electrophysiology, microscopy, calcium imaging, and computational modeling of physiology data.
To be considered, please submit a CV, a brief statement describing your previous work and interest in the lab, and contact information for 1 - 3 professional references as a single PDF file via email.
