Postdoctoral Fellows

We are always looking for talented postdocs to join the Jadhav Lab! We are a Systems Neuroscience lab investigating neural mechanisms underlying cognition, in particular – Learning, Memory and Decision making in the rodent brain. We investigate the role of hippocampal, cortical and sub-cortical circits using a combination of behavior, in vivo physiological recordings, optogenetics, and computational methods. Candidates with experience in any of these areas – behavior, electrophysiology, optogenetics, and/or strong data analysis skills are especially encouraged to apply. Postdocs interested in computational modeling should also contact me. We are interested in strong and motivated candidates with skills in diverse Science or Engineering disciplines, including neuroscience, biology, engineering and physics. Brandeis University is an exciting place for Neuroscience research and provides an exceptional training environment for postdocs. Brandeis is located in close proximity to Boston, offering a vibrant place to live and work. To apply, please send Dr. Shantanu Jadhav ( your CV, a brief cover letter with description of research experience and interests, and contact information for 3 references.

Graduate Students

Graduate (PhD) students interested in the lab should take a look at the Brandeis Neuroscience Graduate Program and the Psychology Graduate Program. If you are interested in working in the lab, please take a close look at our research and related papers. Students are expected to have a strong science background. We are a systems neuroscience lab, and any relevant research experience is a plus. Graduate students typically do research rotations in the lab through the Neuroscience Graduate Program in their first year.

Research Assistants

We currently have a Research Assistant position available. Official listing is available on the Brandeis Careers/ Jobs website: Job Listing.
Please apply with CV, a description of research experience and interests, and contact information for references.

Undergraduate Students

Motivated undergraduates interested in the neural basis of behavior (experimental work and data analysis) can contact me with your CV and a brief explanation of your interests (take a look at our research page and publications!). Also send me a copy of your grades so far at Brandeis. Students should be interested and excited about neuroscience research in animal models. You should be willing to put in the time and effort required to earn about the science done in the lab.
