Neuroimaging Scientist

Position Details

  • Job Title: Neuroimaging Scientist
  • Location: New York
  • Job Category: Neuroscience

JOB SUMMARY

We seek a highly motivated scientist/bioengineer with experience investigating neural circuits using advanced technologies.  The initial responsibilities of the role are to design and implement experiments to study the effects of gut-brain axis activation on neuronal responses in select CNS areas through optical recording with fiber photometry.  These studies are part of larger efforts to elucidate how gut-derived hormonal and neural signals modulate brain function that provide ample opportunity to undertake greater responsibilities.

Candidates must have extensive experience with optical recording in mouse models and a proven ability to successfully complete scientific projects.  They must also work well both collaboratively and independently and possess outstanding written, visual and oral communications skills.

KEY RESPONSIBILITIES

  • Setting up a suite of fiber photometry recording systems
  • Performing necessary logistical support (e.g., organizing availability of mouse models and compounds) for optical recording experiments
  • Designing, implementing, and interpreting fiber photometry optical recording experiments in selected brain areas
  • Communicating results to a broad audience of scientific colleagues

QUALIFICATIONS AND EDUCATION REQUIREMENTS

You must have:

  • PhD in neuroscience, bioengineering, or related area
  • Expertise in optical recording
  • 5+ years of experience in mouse experimental models (e.g. surgery, viral injection, behavioral testing, physiology, transgenic mice)
  • Ability to analyze and interpret large datasets
