Postdoc position, Julie Kauer's lab

Stanford University

I am seeking a highly motivated researcher to join my lab at Stanford. Our focus is to understand synapses altered by reward, reinforcement, and pain using electrophysiological recordings, and to modulate them optogenetically. I am seeking an applicant interested in joining NIH-funded projects using electrophysiological and optogenetic tools in brain slices as well as optogenetic tools in mouse behavioral assays to identify and control circuits critical for:

1) acute stress induced changes in motivation for drug seeking

2) control of pain perception

 

Please send a brief description of your research interests and CV as well as contact information for three references to: jkauer@stanford.edu



PhD or MD/PhD in relevant neuroscience area

Expertise with electrophysiology, animal behavior and/or optogenetics is desirable

Strong communication skills

Ability to work independently and as part of a team.
