**We are particularly interested in potential postdocs who are interested in (1) the neural basis and biomechanics of walking coordination in Drosophila or (2) the neural mechanisms of visual processing and behavior in Drosophila. Please contact Damon for details.**

We are always looking for qualified and talented PhDs to join the lab as postdoctoral fellows. We are particularly interested in postdocs with interests in electrophysiology and in vivo two-photon imaging in Drosophila, as well as in genetic manipulations, modeling, and behavioral analyses. A background in systems neuroscience, physics, engineering, or quantitative biology is particularly helpful. Please contact Damon if you are enthusiastic about charging ahead in these areas.

Doctoral students

If you want to join the lab as a doctoral student, you should apply to one of Yale’s excellent PhD tracks. In particular, you should apply to the Biological and Biomedical Sciences (BBS) program, which encompasses tracks like the Interdepartmental Neuroscience Program (INP); Molecular Cell Biology, Genetics and Development (MCGD); and Physics, Engineering, and Biology (PEB). If you are already at Yale, definitely shoot Damon an email to talk about potential rotation projects.


If you are a Yale undergraduate interested in working in our lab, we’d be happy to chat! Shoot Damon an email to arrange a time to tour the lab and talk about potential projects. We’re interested in biologists, neuroscientists, physicists, and engineers of all stripes. For non-Yale undergraduates, our lab is associated with PEB’s Research Experience for Undergraduates, which also provides valuable support and extra-lab enrichment activities.
