We are currently seeking enthusiastic scientists to join our goal of understanding the neural basis of social cognition. We develop and use cutting-edge behavioral, electrophysiology, viral, neural perturbation, and other methods. Suitable candidates will join a laboratory with projects already underway, extensive collaborations in an environment designed to complement their abilities and strengthen their weaknesses.


We have several advanced projects using novel methods underway that would greatly benefit from a postdoc seeking an understanding of rodent social interaction. Please contact Gowan Tervo directly for more information.
