Princeton University The Falkner Lab at the Princeton Neuroscience Institute is seeking several highly motivated postdoctoral or more senior researchers interested in studying social decision-making circuits in behaving mice, using high-density extracellular physiology, 2P imaging, macro-scale calcium recordings, perturbation, quantitative behavior analysis, and computational modeling. The term of this appointment is for one year, with the possibility of renewal based upon satisfactory performance and funding. Successful applicants will design a research program focused around understanding how social interactions change subcortical computations, leading to changes in sensory processing and behavior. Ideal candidates should be engaged and willing to learn new techniques as well as develop new behavioral assays. We welcome applicants with diverse quantitative backgrounds, including, but not limited to neuroscience, biology, and engineering. Start date for the position is as early as Fall 2021. For more information about our lab and current projects, which include macroscale neural and behavioral recordings during social experience, closed-loop social behavioral control, and mapping the neural correlates of social hierarchy, visit our webpage: To inquire about the position please contact Annegret Falkner at We are a young lab with diverse interests and all enthusiastic candidates with a doctoral degree and interest in social decision-making circuits are encouraged to apply. Applications from members of groups historically under-represented in Neurosciences are encouraged. Qualifications A Ph.D. in neuroscience or a related field is required. Previous experience in neurophysiology or imaging, behavior, computational modeling, and MATLAB or Python proficiency is desirable, though we also welcome applicants with experience in molecular biology or molecular tool engineering. Interested applicants must apply at and include a cover letter stating background and professional interests, a CV including all publications, and contact information for three references.
