The Program in Developmental Neuroscience and Developmental Neurogenetics at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles is seeking a Postdoctoral Research Fellow to join a translational research project, led by Dr. Pat Levitt, investigating the origins of phenotypic heterogeneity following introduction of causal gene mutations for intellectual disability and autism. Mouse genetic reference panels provide an experimental platform for determining the impact on behavior, circuit function and molecular adaptations due to specific gene mutations. Methodologies include single cell transcriptomics, social, emotional and cognitive behaviors, high resolution animal MRI and circuit mapping. The research fellow will participate in all levels of the research investigation, including experiment planning, data collection, data processing, established and innovative data analyses, and manuscript and abstract preparation. Professional development activities, including individual development plans, assistance with fellowship application, science communication skills and opportunities for academic growth are provided by the laboratory and institution.

Candidates are expected to have excellent interpersonal skills as well as familiarity with large data management, data science and statistical analyses.

Qualified applicants will have a Ph.D. in neuroscience or a related field.

This position is open for an immediate start date, with a minimum 2-year commitment. Applications will be accepted until the position is filled.
