We are seeking an enthusiastic postdoc to join the De Marco lab at Cornell. Our focus is to elucidate how perinatal sensory experience shapes the development of cortical circuits. We use a combination of techniques including viral tracing, patch-clamp recording, optogenetic mapping and in vivo calcium imaging to study neuronal development in the mouse brain (Che et al., Neuron 2018; Duan, Che, Chu et al. Neuron 2020). Applicants should have a PhD or MD/PhD degree in Neuroscience or a related field and demonstrated previous productivity. 

Ability to work independently and as a member of a team is expected. Strong writing and communication skills are essential.
