We are seeking highly motivated individuals to work on a research project focused on the wiring of brain circuits. The position if fully funded by a NIH BRAIN initiative award. Our laboratory is interested in the mechanisms that regulate the connectivity between neurons, and in developing genetic methods to investigate brain wiring. The research combines techniques in molecular biology, neuroanatomy, viral tracing, microscopy, genetics, and transgenesis in rodents and Drosophila.
In your application, include a detailed curriculum vitae, a short statement on future research goals, and names and contact details for at least two references to firstname.lastname@example.org.
A Ph.D. in molecular biology, biochemistry, genetics, neurobiology or a related field is required and candidates should have a record of research excellence demonstrated by publication.
Practical experience with molecular biology and genetic methods is necessary.
Experience with Drosophila and/or mouse genetics is highly desirable.
Candidates must have a strong interest to work as members of a team. Applicants who are motivated to develop careers as independent investigators are especially encouraged.
Additional Salary Information: Depending on qualifications, postdoctoral fellows will receive salaries according to NIH guidelines (starting salary is 45,000 USD or approx. 38,000 Euros).
It is anticipated that the postdoctoral fellows will stay in the lab for 4-5 years.
