Postdoc Position in Development of Cortical Circuits
We are seeking a motivated postdoctoral fellow to join the De Marco lab at Cornell. Our focus is to elucidate how perinatal sensory experience shapes the development of cortical circuits. We use a combination of techniques including viral tracing, patch-clamp recording, optogenetic mapping and in vivo calcium imaging to study neuronal development in the mouse brain (Che et al., Neuron 2018; Duan, Che, Chu et al. Neuron 2019; in press).
Applicants should have a PhD or MD/PhD degree in Neuroscience or a related field and demonstrated previous productivity. Ability to work independently and as a member of a team is expected. Strong writing and communication skills are essential. Prior experience in electrophysiology, in vivo imaging or mouse genetics is desirable. Interested applicants should send application materials including a CV that describes past research experience, cover letter and contact information of at least three references by email to Dr. Natalia De Marco Garcia (firstname.lastname@example.org), Assistant Professor, Brain and Mind Research Institute, Weill Cornell Medical College.
