The Department of Neuroscience and Pharmacology at the University of Iowa has an opening for a postdoctoral researcher to study the the role of monoaminergic systems and neuropeptides in alcohol dependence, depression and Alzheimer’s disease. The lab employs cutting-edge techniques including two-photon imaging, fiber photometry, electrophysiology, PET and fMRI, optogenetics, chemogenetics and 3D imaging of cleared tissue using transgenic mouse models. We seek enthusiastic and highly motivated individuals who are committed to a scientific career and have the ability to work independently. You will be part of a highly interactive and collaborative team of researchers and have the opportunity to publish in high impact journals. Mentorship in grant-writing, career development awards, and preparing for and navigating the academic job market will be provided.
