Neural Circuit Development: Postdoctoral positions are available
The Umemori lab (http://www.umemorilab.org) is looking for motivated postdoctoral fellows to join our projects or to start new projects.
We have been identifying the mechanisms underlying the establishment of appropriate synaptic connections in the brain in order to provide clues for the treatment of disorders associated with abnormal synapse development (e.g., Cell 2004, Cell 2007, Nature 2010, Neuron 2011, Nature Neuroscience 2013, eLife 2016).
We are particularly interested in dopaminergic circuits, cortico-basal ganglia circuits, and limbic circuits, but are open to any circuits in the brain. We are trying to understand how specific circuits develop and are modified (e.g., by environment) in the brain in order to support our brain function.
Ph.D. and/or M.D. scientists trained in any fields of biology are welcome to apply. Any interested individuals should send their CV, a summary of research accomplishments, and a statement of scientific/research interests (i.e., what you want to do in our lab) to "email@example.com".
We are looking for motivated scientists from any fields to initiate new and exciting projects in our lab.
