The Watson laboratory heavily collaborates with that of Dr. Huda Akil. As such, intelligent, pleasant, collaborative applicants are highly valued. These specific projects will involve deep anatomical study of rodent and human neural systems using a wide variety of tools. For example, we use several forms of in situ hybridization and immunocytochemistry in the study of postmortem brains from the mentally ill, often with stereology, 3D quantitation, LCM and with computer analytic tools. Skills in computation and optical systems are highly valued as well.
Ph.D. in Neuroscience, able to work in a collaborative environment; significant neuroanatomical skills in rodents and especially human/primates. Circuit analysis skills. Knowledge of or interest in in situ hybridization, image analysis, Microbrightfield tools, confocal or light-sheet microscopy and LCM and clear 3D tissues.
Additional Salary Information: NIH standard wages.
Based on prior postdoctoral experience.
