Position Summary

The Rodriguez-Romaguera lab at UNC-Chapel Hill has an open postdoc position. The successful candidate will perform and lead experiments to dissect the neuronal circuits that drive hyperarousal states in mice by monitoring neuronal activity with single-cell precision. To accomplish this goal, they will employ state-of-the-art in vivo calcium imaging techniques in both head-fixed (two-photon microscopy) and freely-moving (miniscopes) mice to record and track the activity of hundreds of individual neurons with both genetic and projection specificity. Complementary to these imaging approaches they will also employ in vivo optogenetic approaches to directly manipulate the activity of neurons. These approaches will allow the candidate to record and manipulate the activity of individual neurons while simultaneously assessing arousal and behavioral responses.
