We have an open position for a Postdoctoral Fellow to study cortical circuitry and signaling that underlie pathological drives underlying alcohol addiction in the laboratory of Prof. Frederic Hopf at the University of California, San Francisco.
Research in the Hopf lab uses state-of-the-art techniques including optogenetics and chemogenetics, molecular/genetic technique for gene manipulations in subpopulations of neurons in vivo, viral-mediated gene delivery, ex vivo electrophysiology in adult animals, fiber photometry, and development of novel behavioral approaches including models of compulsive intake. The position offers an opportunity to be part of a collaborative team at the vibrant research community at the UCSF Mission Bay campus.
Please send Curriculum Vitae and names of three references to: Professor Frederic Hopf, Department of Neurology, University of California San Francisco, firstname.lastname@example.org
Highly motivated candidates that have recently graduated or will be graduating within the next year are encouraged to apply. Candidates must have a proven track record in the neural circuitry of addiction. Preference will be given to candidates with an interest in slice electrophysiology
