The Han lab at Washington University studies learning and memory in the hippocampus. We investigate the cellular and neuronal circuit activity underlying spatial and cognitive learning in mice. Major approaches in the lab include in vivo two-photon imaging and electrophysiology during virtual reality and real world behavior, pharmacology, chemo/optogenetics, and computational modeling.
We are looking for creative and enthusiastic postdoctoral researchers or staff scientists with a PhD in neuroscience or related field. Scientists interested in moving into systems neuroscience from other backgrounds are welcome. Women and under-represented minorities are especially encouraged to apply. Our supportive and collaborative lab environment is geared towards giving scientists the skills and mindset to move on to the next level, whatever they may choose. Prior experience in imaging, electrophysiology, mouse behavior, or modeling is preferred but not required.
Washington University is an outstanding research university and our lab is located in the heart of the School of Medicine. We have strong ties with the larger research community and are engaged in multiple productive collaborations. Applicants will find that the postdoctoral salary goes far in St. Louis, a vibrant and affordable city that was listed by Time Magazine as one of the world’s greatest places in 2021. Many job openings are available in the department and University for those with a two-body situation. Housing stock is a plentiful and home ownership is not uncommon among grad students and postdocs.
Please apply directly with a CV and cover letter to Edward Han (firstname.lastname@example.org). Also feel free to contact for a more informal Zoom meeting to discuss research interests and directions. More lab details are available at: https://sites.wustl.edu/hanlab/
