Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position in the lab of Dr. Cristina Alberini, in the Center for Neural Science at New York University.

The position is part of a large project that investigates molecular mechanisms of long-term memory formation and enhancement at different ages of the lifespan and applies the gained knowledge to models of memory impairments.

One project will focus on the identification of the biological bases of infantile learning and how the biology of early life experiences influences behaviors and brain functions throughout life.

Another project will focus on the identification of molecular and cell biological mechanisms underlying learning-dependent protein metabolism homeostasis regulation, which is critical for the formation of long-term memories. Protein homeostasis regulations are altered in several brain diseases such as neurodevelopmental disorders and neurodegenerative diseases.

These studies will use mice and rats as model systems and employ a multi-level approach including molecular, cellular, bioinformatic, and behavioral analyses.

Salary will be commensurate with research experience and based on the NIH guidelines for postdoctoral research associates, trainees and fellows.

A PhD in Neuroscience, Biology or associated area is preferred. Experience in molecular techniques and animal behavior is strongly preferred.
