The lab of Professor Leena Ali Ibrahim at KAUST, Saudi Arabia, has an opening for a funded postdoctoral position.

A major focus of the laboratory is understanding the circuit mechanisms of how internal states of an animal via top-down circuits influences sensory processing during development and learning. In addition we are interested in exploring how the balance of bottom-up and top-down signaling is disrupted in neurodevelopmental and neuropsychiatric disorders. A number of potential projects can be supported depending on interest and expertise. We use a variety of approaches including in vivo two-photon microscopy and behavior, slice physiology, optogenetics and viral targeting of defined cell types. Minimum qualifications are a PhD or MD/PhD in neuroscience or a closely related field. Prior experience with imaging and/or electrophysiology is preferred. Experience with image processing, animal behavior and data analysis is beneficial. 

Benefits: free housing; relocation support; subsidized medical and dental insurance; one round-trip airline ticket per year to visit home country.
