Our research employs cross-disciplinary approaches (genetics, transcriptomics, circuit tracing, functional imaging, quantitative behavioral analyses) to elucidate the roles played by genes and neurons in social behavior. An ideal postdoctoral fellow candidate would have a demonstrated expertise in the following fields:
The most important quality for a candidate is the curiosity and drive toward understanding the neurobiology of animal behavior. We seek a postdoctoral fellow who is capable of working independently to build a robust research program by fostering collaborations (both within and external to the Asahina lab and with Salk Core personnel) to achieve their goals.
A Ph.D. degree in a relevant discipline, such as biology, neuroscience, bioinformatics, or computer sciences.
A successful candidate must have experience conducting independent and productive research. The specific topic of this previous research is not as important as the candidate's creativity in framing an innovative question around their expertise and curiosity.
