The Grutzendler lab at Yale has an opening for an outstanding, highly-motivated post-doctoral fellow to study mechanisms of neuronal-glial interactions in the normal brain and in neurodegeneration. Our lab uses a variety of techniques including two-photon microscopy to repeatedly image individual neurons, glial cells (microglia, astrocytes, pericytes) and blood vessels over periods of up to months. We also developed a methodology for in vivo label free microscopy of myelin. This imaging-centric approach is combined with the use of viral vectors and in utero electroporation, optical sensors of cellular physiology, optogenetics, chemogenetics and genome editing techniques.
