Basu Lab Positions

The Basu Lab at NYU Langone is looking to expand our team. See below for details about our job openings.

Postdoctoral Researchers

We are looking for talented postdoctoral scholars with a strong interest in synaptic and circuit function to join our team.

We are particularly eager to recruit candidates who are motivated to incorporate as well as develop creative and novel experimental and analysis paradigms to study how behaviorally-relevant activity shapes information processing in mnemonic circuits. There will be ample scope to further develop (but not limited to) the following approaches:

  • assays for learning behaviors in freely moving and head-fixed mice in virtual reality environments
  • optical, molecular, and genetic tools to monitor and modulate neuronal activity
  • models of synaptic integrative properties, excitation-inhibition dynamics, and neuronal ensemble coding

Interested candidates can send a resume, a short statement of research interests, and experience and contact information of two or three references in PDF format to Dr. Basu at

Graduate Students

We are offering lab rotations. Whatever your background or research experience, if you are keen to learn patch clamp electrophysiology and/or two-photon imaging and explore how fundamental circuits control activity in the entorhinal cortex and hippocampus please email us at Projects involving behavioral testing with optogenetic gain or loss of function approaches are also conceivable.
