An NIH-funded postdoctoral position is available in the Huntley lab at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York City. Two related projects focus on corticostriatal circuit development and synaptic plasticity from the perspective of disease-related molecules and their control of striatal circuit function and behaviors. We are looking for enthusiastic, hard-working and collegial candidates with strong interests in optogenetic and electrical stimulation-based interrogation of synapse development and function using genetically-manipulated mouse models. Interested candidates should send their curriculum vitae, a brief description of their research goals, and the names of three references to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Candidates should have a recent PhD in Neuroscience or a related field, and must be experienced in synaptic whole-cell electrophysiological techniques, including synapse plasticity-induction paradigms.
