Description: A postdoctoral position is available in the Slesinger laboratory at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York City. We are supported by the NIH BRAIN initiative and are developing cell-based detectors, called CNiFERs, that can be implanted in a mouse brain and detect the release of specific neurotransmitters in real time. We also have projects that examine the role of brain potassium channels in addiction. I am looking for independent and enthusiastic candidates with training in electrophysiology and/or imaging, and an interest in solving fundamental questions about drug addiction. Candidates should have a recent PhD in Neuroscience or related field and first-author publication(s) from their PhD. Interested candidates should send a curriculum vitae, a brief description of their research goals, and the names of three references to firstname.lastname@example.org.
