Ranked tenth among its peers, the School takes pride in being an inclusive community of outstanding learners, investigators, clinicians, and staff where traditional barriers are low, interdisciplinary collaboration is embraced, and great ideas accelerate translation of fundamental scientific discoveries to improve humanhealth locally and around the globe.

Comprised of 2,400 faculty physicians and researchers, the Duke University School of Medicine along with the Duke University School of Nursing and Duke University Health System create Duke Health. Duke Health is a world-class health care network.

The Glickfeld lab is looking for a full-time research technician for a post-baccalaureate position in the Department of Neurobiology at Duke University. We use physiological and psychophysical approaches to understand how visual inputs are transformed into neuronal signals in the cortex, and how this information is used to guide behaviors.

Your main goals will be to pursue an independent research project but you will also be responsible for some technical duties (e.g. animal husbandry and surgeries).

Candidates must have a specific interest in circuits or systems neuroscience. The ideal candidate should also have some previous research experience working with animals and experience coding in Matlab and/or Python.

This is a great opportunity for a recent graduate looking to take a year or two off before applying to medical or graduate school. Interested candidates should send a CV with GPA and three references and a cover letter outlining their interests in neuroscience to Dr. Glickfeld (glickfeld at neuro dot duke dot edu).
