We are currently looking for graduate students and postdocs interested in neural development, visual circuity or connectomic analysis. Although our core approach to circuit reconstruction is large scale 3D electron microscopy, we integrate this approach with functional imaging and genetic manipulation and appreciate a range of experiences. Programming experience is a plus. Please contact Josh at firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more.
Potential postdocs should send a CV, a statement of research interests, and references to email@example.com. Washington University graduate students can inquire at firstname.lastname@example.org. Those interested in the Washington University graduate programs can inquire at the Division of Biological and Biomedical Sciences.
Potential projects include:
Development, degeneration, and regeneration of retinogeniculate connections
Connectomic reconstruction of visual nuclei
Comparative connectomics of visual systems (How do retinas with multiple foveas, such as those of many lizards and birds, organize their innervation of the dLGN?)
Connectomic analysis of human retina
