The lab is looking for graduate students interested in studying mechanisms of crossmodal plasticity. Details on graduate program points of entry can be found here. Applicants with a strong background in experimental design, computer programming in Matlab/Python, and statistical analyses are particularly encouraged. Please feel free to email for additional information! 

We're also looking to hire a postdoctoral fellow interested in pursuing questions related to the nature of neuroplastic reorganization following sensory loss.  This position has an anticipated start date in fall/winter 2020 and is funded for 2 years with the possibility to extend. The ideal candidate would have previous experience with fibre photometry and/or circuit manipulation via optogenetic and/or pharmaceutical techniques. Applications from scientists belonging to under-represented groups are strongly encouraged. Please get in contact to discuss!
