Open Positions

The Princeton Neuroscience Institute (PNI) at Princeton University has research positions available at the postdoctoral or more senior research levels in the areas of neuroscience, psychology, molecular biology, biochemistry, physics, computer science, and genetics. An initial appointment is for one year with the possibility of renewal, based on satisfactory performance and continued funding. 

Leifer Lab - Neural dynamics of behavior

The Leifer Lab seeks an extremely motivated postdoctoral researcher with a background in neural systems or circuits investigations. The postdoctoral researcher will leverage the lab's optical neurophysiology toolkit to investigate neural circuit function underlying behavior in the nematode C. elegans. Experimental approaches will include calcium imaging of brain activity, optogenetic manipulation of specific neurons and circuits, behavioral experiments and genetic studies. Possible application domains may include sensorimotor processing, chemosensory guided navigation, mating behavior or learning.
