Now hiring!!

SLAB is growing, and hiring for multiple postdoctoral positions.

We’ll help you be creative and productive, and your hard work will be rewarded with excellent papers, connections, and experience. We work hard to promote people in the subsequent steps of their careers.

Relevant experience is a plus, but these are training positions, so extensive experience is not required. We want fast learners, who are responsible, and most of all are passionate about exploring neural circuitry. If that’s you, come and work in SLAB. Here’s our Tumblr feed to give you an idea of what life in SLAB is like.

A PhD is required. We’re happy to make connections with people early. So if you’re still in graduate school or another postdoctoral position, but are interested, please drop us an email.

Expertise in optics, electronics, programming, or neuroscience would be a plus, but not required. You’ll be developing state-of-the-art technology to gain unprecedented views into mammalian neural circuitry in action. Come and help create systems to see neural circuitry in ways that no one has ever seen before.

Experience in electrophysiology, behavior, or imaging would be a plus, but not required. You’ll be exploring neural circuitry using state-of-the-art technology, some of which is developed right in our lab. Come and help uncover the mechanisms of neural computation.

UNC-Chapel Hill has been ranked one of the best places for postdocs. UNC-Chapel Hill is #8 in NIH funding (2014) across all institutions. The Research Triangle (population ~2 million) has one of the highest per capita concentrations of PhDs in the world. The cost of living is low, and the quality of life is high. The Triangle has excellent restaurants and vibrant arts & culture. North Carolina has excellent outdoor activities, including beaches, rivers, and mountains.

SLAB is an equal opportunity employer, and under-represented minorities are encouraged to apply.

Applicants should email their CV and a brief cover letter to SLAB at
