We have space for another 1-2 postdocs to work on NIH/NSF/BBRF-funded projects. These grants span the investigation of multiple neural circuits involved in reinforcement learning, including in both appetitive and aversive procedures. These projects use optogenetics, chemogenetics, and fiber photometry of genetically-encoded calcium and dopamine sensors, to study the role of neural circuits in various learning phenomena. Our most relevant publications to these projects would be Seitz et al. 2022 and Sharpe et al. 2021. If you are interested in applying to join the lab, you can contact me at melissa.j.sharpe@psych.ucla.edu. Let me know what you have been working on in the past, why you’re interested in the lab, and the kinds of projects you see yourself doing in the future.
