Applications are invited from highly motivated scholars for a postdoc position in the Hasenstaub Laboratory in the Department of Otolaryngology/Head and Neck Surgery, at the University of California San Francisco.  Applicants should be committed to studying the basis of auditory perception in the mouse by combining computational and biological tools, including in vivo electrophysiology, calcium imaging, optogenetic or other manipulations, and quantitative analysis and modeling. Three projects are available: 1) Optogenetic, behavioral, and computational studies of the circuitry mediating the influences of auditory, visual, and behavioral context in awake mouse auditory cortex. 2) Behavioral and circuit readouts of interneuron-mediated manipulation of auditory cortical plasticity in the mouse. 3) Functional and transcriptional changes associated with hearing loss or presbycusis.

Prior experience in at least one of the following: mouse or rat auditory behavioral experiments, in vivo or in vitro electrophysiology, widefield calcium imaging, optogenetics, analysis of large datasets, and/or establishing collaborations with other human/animal neuroscience laboratories is desirable.
