We are seeking a motivated scientist to fill a postdoc associate or research assistant professor position in the lab of Dr. Hongbing Wang at Michigan State University (https://physiology.natsci.msu.edu/directory/faculty/hongbing-wang-ph-d/).

 

The main research goal, aided by multiple transgenic mouse models, is to study molecular and cellular mechanisms underpinning adaptive brain function and pathophysiology associated with psychiatric disorders. Recent graduates with a doctoral degree in neuroscience or related field are considered for the postdoc position. Candidates with significant postdoctoral experience are considered for the research assistant professor position. The position requires skills in experimental design, data analysis, trouble-shooting and problem-solving, and effective oral and written communication. Previous trainings and skills in molecular/cellular biology, slice or in vivo electrophysiology and imaging, animal behavior, and genetic and optogenetic approaches are preferred. The salary range is $48-70K, depending on experience and qualification.

 

Research directions in the lab include:

1) mechanisms underlying complexed behavior such as learning and forgetting, stress susceptibility/resilience, and social behavior

2) mechanisms underlying the pathophysiology of Fragile X syndrome and Bipolar disorder

3) transcription homeostasis in neurons

 

To apply, send a cover letter summarizing your qualification, research interests/accomplishments and skills, plus CV and contact information of 3 references to Hongbing Wang (wangho@msu.edu).
