The Liao Lab has a 3 year NSF post-doc position open starting as soon as June 30th 2019, for a project entitled: Flexibility and robustness of attack and evasion: reverse-engineering the mechanisms of behavioral control. We are looking an independent and creative postdoc with strong record of publications in the field of biomechanics, neuroscience or engineering. Expertise in electrical engineering, programming or electrophysiology is desired.
Related research in the lab centers on the biomechanics of swimming in turbulence, and there are many opportunities to link neurophysiological and biomechanical studies in intact, behaving animals. Our research environment is enhanced by neurophysiology faculty and core facilities at the Whitney Lab and on the Gainesville campus (McKnight Brain Institute, Department of Neuroscience, Genetics Institute and the Biology Department).
This position offers a rare opportunity to explore the function of a tractable vertebrate hair cell circuit in a model genetic organism. Applicants should have a strong background or interest in electrophysiology. Expertise in molecular techniques and/or computer programming is desirable. This 5 year, NIH-funded position comes with a competitive salary and benefits package. Position will remain open until filled.

Jimmy Liao is looking for creative, independent and motivated graduate students that are enthusiastic about using new technology and techniques to understand the mechanisms of animal behavior. He welcomes students from diverse backgrounds (neuroscience, physiology, ecology, engineering etc.) and believes that interest and aptitude can make up for a lack of training.
