A postdoctoral research associate position is available in the Ray Lab in the Department of Neuroscience at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, TX. The overarching goal of our laboratory is to understand how the myriad of neurons and glia in our brain are organized into circuits that keep us alive and enable complex behaviors that may be disrupted in diseases ranging from sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS), the leading cause of neonate death in the United States, to panic disorder, the most common mental illness in the United States.


The Department of Neuroscience at Baylor College of Medicine is focused on research that includes information processing in visual, auditory, and vestibular systems; neural mechanisms mediating higher nervous system functions, including perception, learning, memory, attention, and decision-making; development and regeneration in the central and peripheral nervous system; and the development of new technologies to read and stimulate neural activity, including functional magnetic neuroimaging, transcranial magnetic stimulation, and two-photon microscopy. 


This position is located at the main Baylor College of Medicine campus in the Texas Medical Center.
