Why join the lab?

We are strongly committed to creating an inclusive and supportive environment where people can learn AND have fun. We believe that the best way to achieve this is to foster an open and collaborative atmosphere that promotes original and critical thinking, open communication, and mutual respect. 

Answering the fundamental questions in neuroscience requires bridging multiple scientific disciplines, so we welcome people with different backgrounds and skills, from neuroscience, psychology, and physics to math, engineering, and computer science. It has always been a tremendous pleasure and privilege to work with colleagues from different cultures and backgrounds. This diversity in experience is our strength. It allows everyone in the lab to learn from a variety of exciting and interesting people and creates a team that generates innovative ideas and creative accomplishments. 

Brandeis University is the perfect place to launch or advance your career in neuroscience. It is located a few miles outside of Boston and has a uniquely collaborative research community. There are also a number of shared core facilities, seminars, and interdisciplinary training and research programs. 

Undergraduate and Master's Students

We are looking for Brandeis Undergraduate or Master's students. If you are interested in potential future research opportunities to gain first-hand lab experience, please get in touch via email. Techniques range from behavioral training and activity recordings using electrophysiology and imaging to histology, computational modeling, and data analysis

Research Technician

Are you looking for an opportunity to get hands-on research experience before applying to medical or graduate school? We have an opening for a recent college graduate who is excited about working on cutting-edge projects (with the option of authorship) in a young and dynamic lab. If you are interested, please get in touch via email with any questions and apply here

Ph.D. Students

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 2022/2023. The rotations will feature hands-on training in two-photon Ca2+ imaging and/or intracellular recordings in awake behaving mice. 

Postdoctoral Fellows

We are always seeking motivated postdoctoral candidates with an interest in experimental and/or computational neuroscience. Experimental and/or theoretical projects are available. 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, Ca2+ 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
