Position Description: A postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Dudek in the Neurobiology Laboratory, National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, NIH in Research Triangle Park, NC.  We are interested in understanding how steroid hormones regulate hippocampal neuron gene expression & excitability and how such regulation may contribute to behavior. We currently seek a postdoctoral fellow with training in molecular biology to contribute to these investigations. The lab is an interdisciplinary environment that includes cellular physiologists and systems neuroscientists and uses a variety of approaches, including molecular biology, to study synaptic and developmental plasticity (https://www.niehs.nih.gov/research/atniehs/labs/ln/pi/sdp/index.cfm). Projects in the lab include determining how sex and stress regulate hippocampal function at all stages of development, with a focus on hippocampal area CA2. Our long-term goal is to determine how early developmental events influence adult brain circuitry.  The NIEHS has bioinformatics support and sequencing, imaging, viral vector, and rodent behavioral cores that together offer the successful candidate a number of training opportunities while pursuing their research.

Qualifications: PhD in molecular/cell biology, genomics, biochemistry, or neuroscience, and less than 4 years postdoctoral experience. We are looking for candidates with experience in transcription, endocrinology, epigenetics, RNA, or single cell biology. No prior experience in neurobiology is necessary, but experience working with large data sets or mice is a plus. 

To Apply: Interested candidates should send a short statement of how their interests and research accomplishments fit with interests in the lab, CV and contact information for 3 references to dudek@niehs.nih.gov

The NIH is dedicated to building a diverse community in its training and employment programs
