Department Summary
The Institute of Neuroscience (ION) is a group of biologists, psychologists, and human physiologists at the University of Oregon that has pooled its expertise to tackle fundamental questions in neuroscience - questions such as, "How do neural stem cells choose between self-renewal and differentiation?" "What mechanisms generate the large diversity of neurons within the brain?" "How do these neurons 'wire up' into functional circuits?" "How do neural circuits produce behavior?"

These questions are being explored at all levels of organization - from the relatively simple nervous systems of Drosophila, C. elegans, and zebrafish to the more complex networks in mice, owls, and humans.

ION boasts a highly collaborative faculty with expertise in genetics, development, electrophysiology, optogenetics, and functional MRI. As a result, students enrolled in our PhD program come away with the broad conceptual and technical skills necessary to run an independent neuroscience research lab or pursue many other related career paths. Our state-of-the-art facilities and excellent support staff allow ION members to progress rapidly by making exploratory or pilot experiments accessible.

Position Summary
This position requires a highly motivated person with excellent organizational, laboratory and communication skills. The successful candidate will serve as a laboratory manager who will maintain the day-to-day operations of the laboratory and will participate in a variety of types of experiments independently and in collaboration with other lab members. The research assistant will be expected to independently collect data from zebrafish, analyze the data, and develop tools to support these tasks.

  • Experience with animal genetics
