Santiago Jaramillo’s research group is seeking a postdoctoral scholar to join the lab. This position will be dedicated to studying the neural circuits that underlie auditory cognition using cutting-edge neuroscience techniques in behaving mice.

In our laboratory, we investigate the neural basis of expectation, attention, decision-making and learning in the context of sound-driven behaviors. Projects during the postdoctoral fellowship will study these cognitive processes in the mouse by monitoring and manipulating neuronal activity during adaptive behaviors with cell-type and pathway specificity using tools such as: • Two-photon microscopy (mesoscopic scale). • High-density electrophysiology. • Optogenetic manipulation of activity.
