Rayshubskiy lab postdoc candidate posting

What happens in the brain when an animal is committed to a behavioral goal? Through this question our lab is looking to uncover the neural architecture underlying motor control during persistent behavioral states using Drosophila as a model system. Robots and animals need to solve fundamentally similar executive and motor control problems, except unlike animal brains, architectures of robotic control systems are typically known. These architectures can teach us about challenges and constraints faced by neural control systems.  

We invite postdoctoral candidates with a background or strong interest in experimental systems neuroscience to apply. An interest in robotic architectures is encouraged, but not required. Salary is competitive and comprehensive benefits packages are offered to all Harvard University postdocs. To learn more please visit: www.rayshubskiylab.org

To apply, please send the following to srayshubskiy@rowland.harvard.edu

  • a cover letter describing your past research and your future research interests
  • academic CV
  • contact information for 2-3 references

Hunter Lab Postdoctoral Candidate position

The Hunter Lab at The Rowland Institute at Harvard is now accepting applications for a Postdoctoral Fellow position starting Fall 2020.

The Hunter Group focuses on developing molecules and materials for sustainable large-scale industrial processes, such as solar-driven seawater splitting, electrochemical nitrogen fixation and CO2 reduction, and selective hydrocarbon oxidation. The position will involve synthesis and characterization of molecular and heterogeneous catalysts. Candidates with expertise in all related areas of inorganic and materials chemistry are encouraged to apply. Knowledge of and/or willingness to learn the following skills is desirable:

  • Laser spectroscopy (broadly defined)
  • Electrochemistry
  • Characterization of materials (e.g. XRD, XPS, and related spectroscopies)
  • Air-free techniques (glove box, standard Schlenk maneuvers)

The candidate will benefit from the experience of close contact with the PI (Dr. Bryan Hunter), and the interdisciplinary environment fostered at the Rowland Institute at Harvard and Harvard University.

Applications will be considered beginning October 1, 2020 and will be considered until the position is filled.

To apply, enthusiastic candidates with a Ph.D. in a relevant field should email the following to bhunter@rowland.harvard.edu.

  • Cover letter
  • Curriculum vitae
  • Contact information for at least 2 references
