Postdoctoral Position available at the Research Foundation for Mental Hygiene, located within the New York State Psychiatric Institute/Department of Psychiatry at Columbia University.

 

Our goal is to understand how developmental processes in the maturing prefrontal cortex at the adolescent/adult transition can affect livelong motivation under both appetitive and aversive conditions. 

Our recent work has focused on studying/manipulating the sensitivity prefrontal pyramidal neurons to serotonergic signaling (through 5-HT1A receptors) during this adolescent/adult transition.  To achieve our goal, we employ a wide variety of experimental techniques, including behavioral approaches, electrophysiology, fiber photometry, optogenetics and circuit tracing. 

Successful candidates will have a PhD/MD or equivalent in neuroscience, physiology, pharmacology or equivalent.  Candidates with electrophysiology experience, experience using optical imaging techniques are encouraged to apply.  Experience with operant animal behavior is also desirable.

Please send a CV, list of three references and a brief cover letter.
