Postdoctoral fellowship – Neural basis of social behaviour – Choe Lab – McMaster University

The Choe Lab ( at the Department of Psychology, Neuroscience & Behaviour, McMaster University researches mechanisms underlying social behaviour using a multi-scale approach with a wide array of techniques including in vitro electrophysiology, molecular biology, confocal and lightsheet imaging, optogenetic and chemogenetics, in vivo fiber photometry recordings, mouse fMRI and behaviour assays. The postdoctoral fellow will conduct research projects related to our group’s core interests using any number of above listed approaches.

Previous experience with in vitro slice electrophysiology, confocal microscopy, and/or fMRI (especially using rodent models) is preferred but not necessary. In addition, previous experience with autism neurobiology, developmental neurobiology, and mouse behaviour would be beneficial.

McMaster University is strongly committed to employment equity within its community, and to recruiting a diverse faculty and staff. The University encourages applications from all qualified candidates, including women, members of visible minorities, Aboriginal persons, members of sexual minorities and persons with disabilities.
