Postdoctoral Scholar in Neuroscience
We are looking for postdoc who has been trained in patch clamp electrophysiology to join our team. The aim of the project is to identify and characterize fundamental synaptic mechanisms of glutamate co-release by forebrain cholinergic and GABAergic neurons important for cognition and mood.
The laboratory uses genetically modified mice, viral tracing, opto- and chemo-genetics, confocal and two-photon imaging, molecular, biochemical and behavioral analyses to understand circuit-level mechanisms underlying behavior in mammals.
The successful candidate must have a PhD in Neuroscience, Physiology or related field and a track record of productivity. The candidate should also have creative thinking skills, a command of the neuroscience literature, an affinity for performing experimental animal research and an ability to work collaboratively.
The successful candidate will become part of a large, vibrant, multidisciplinary, and internationally recognized neuroscience community at the University of Pittsburgh. The laboratory is located in Department of Neurobiology in the School of Medicine and is affiliated with the Center for the Neural Basis of Cognition. Pittsburgh offers numerous cultural and sports activities as well as an affordable lifestyle for young professionals. Consistently ranked as one of the most livable cities in the US by the Economist and Forbes Magazine.
