A postdoctoral position is available for an enthusiastic electrophysiologist interested in investigating Neuregulin (NRG)\ErbB4 signaling pathways in the Section on Molecular Neurobiology. Neuregulin (NRG)\ErbB4 signaling pathways is genetically associated with schizophrenia and bipolar disorder which regulates synaptic properties and neuronal networks that underlie cognitive functions altered in psychiatric disorders.
We are recruiting for a motivated electrophysiologist to investigate how synaptic plasticity and cortical excitatory/inhibitory balance is altered in different genetically modified mouse lines targeting the NRG\ErbB4 pathway. The long-term aim of this research is to identify and characterize the neuronal microcircuits and molecular pathways that contribute to complex behavioral processes associated with cognition.
