The Vestibular Neuroscience Lab is enthusiastically recruiting postdoctoral scholars dedicated to investigating the electrophysiologic bases of dynamic sensory coding and hypofunction by vestibular epithelia in the laboratory of Larry Hoffman, Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA. This work is highly translational and harbors many opportunities for developing new strategies for investigating peripheral sensory neurobiology and neurorehabilitation.

Postdoctoral Scholar in Systems Electrophysiology

Duties and Responsibilities

  • Single- and multi-neuron (tetrode) electrophysiology
  • Vestibulo-ocular reflex recording
  • Computational analyses of sensory spiketrains
  • Presentations at local and national meetings
  • Manuscript preparation
  • Opportunities for learning cell biology tools for correlation with electrophysiology
  • Opportunities for preparation of funding applications

Required Qualifications

  • Systems electrophysiology
  • Neurosensory behavioral recording and analyses
  • Tract-tracing, immunohistochemistry, confocal microscopy, and image analysis
  • Matlab, LabView, or other programming environment

This position is available immediately. Additional inquiries and questions should be directed to Larry Hoffman (lfh@g.ucla.edu).

Applications should include a letter of interest and detailed CV.
