Full Time

The lab of Tom Jhou at the Medical University of South Carolina seeks 1-2 postdoctoral fellows for innovative study of addiction and aversion via integration of a wide range of advanced techniques, including calcium imaging (using endoscopic cameras and fiber photometry), slice electrophysiology, in vivo electrophysiology, and genomic methods (RNAseq and DNAseq). Candidate(s) will be encouraged to work both on funded projects and to explore independent lines of work of their own choosing. Lab projects are continuously evolving in response to collected data, but currently include: (1) mechanisms and clinical relevance of aversive effects of abused drugs, (2) interactions of RMTg, habenula, amygdala, and other valence-processing circuits, (3) novel roles of CCK in motivated behavior, (4) novel serotonergic roles in cocaine motivation. The lab is situated within a highly active and collaborative department, with multiple labs doing innovative work in the neural circuitry of addiction and motivated behavior.
