Summary

The St-Pierre lab ( stpierrelab.com ; Twitter: @StPierreLab) develops and applies new tools for perturbing and imaging the brain. We develop fluorescent indicators of neural activity (e.g., voltage indicators), light-gated proteins to control neural activity (e.g., optogenetic silencers), photostable fluorescent proteins (e.g., mGold YFP), and genetic circuits to control protein expression (e.g., Equalizers). We are looking for a motivated, organized, creative, and resourceful scientist with expertise in synthetic biology, protein engineering, advanced imaging, and/or machine learning and electrophysiology. The successful candidate will have the opportunity to develop cutting-edge molecular technologies, learn new skills, and be part of an enjoyable workplace.
