Postdoc Position at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST)

The HyperScope multiphoton imaging system now has advanced imaging capabilities; the introduction of an extended wavelength lens set means you can image deeper and through thin scattering layers in in vivo samples. Learn more here.

Job Title: Postdoctoral fellow

Location: Thuwal, Saudi Arabia

The Position

A funded postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Leena Ali Ibrahim at KAUST, Saudi Arabia. A major focus of the laboratory is understanding the circuit mechanisms of how the internal states of an animal via top-down circuits influences sensory processing during development and learning. In addition we are interested in exploring how the balance of bottom-up and top-down signalling is disrupted in neurodevelopmental and neuropsychiatric disorders. A number of potential projects can be supported depending on interest and expertise.

We use a variety of approaches including in vivo two-photon microscopy and behavior, slice physiology, optogenetics and viral targeting of defined cell types.

The Candidate

Minimum qualifications are a PhD or MD/PhD in neuroscience or a closely related field. Prior experience with imaging and/or electrophysiology is helpful.
