A postdoctoral position is available to investigate the neurobiological basis for traumatic brain injury (TBI) effects on alcohol-related outcomes. This co-mentored position is available in the labs of Drs. Patricia Molina and Nick Gilpin at Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center (LSUHSC) in New Orleans. This NIH-funded project uses an integrative approach that combines behavioral pharmacology, circuit-based approaches, slice electrophysiology, and molecular techniques. The successful candidate will have excellent teamwork skills, strong intrinsic motivation, strong letters of support, and expertise in one or more of the above listed techniques, but we are especially interested in candidates with slice electrophysiology expertise. The successful candidate will be mentored toward research independence in his/her chosen area of specialization. Individuals holding or near completion (within six months) of a Ph.D. or equivalent degree are eligible. U.S. citizenship or permanent residency is required. The applicant will work in a highly collaborative environment located within the heart of New Orleans and receive an NIH-level stipend.
