The lab of Sven Kroener (https://labs.utdallas.edu/csp/) at The University of Texas at Dallas is hiring Post-Doctoral Researchers to be involved in several multi-year NIH funded projects. These projects focus on understanding alterations in the neuronal circuitry of the medial prefrontal cortex related to drug addiction and their potential treatment. The lab employs a multi-disciplinary approach, combining behavioral assays, optogenetics, viral knockdown, and in-vitro electrophysiology.
The ideal candidates will be highly motivated, independent, and passionate about research. Applicants should have an interest in the neurobiology of drug addiction and hold a PhD. Prior experience with relevant behavioral paradigms (drug self-administration or cognitive rodent tasks) or electrophysiology is desired, but not required, and applicants who have skills in only some of these disciplines, but feel that they can easily learn the others are encouraged to apply. We are seeking individuals with experience in project management, ability to promote a team-driven research environment, and excellent oral and written communication skills. The postdoctoral fellow will be intimately involved in the writing of publications and grant applications. Salary will be commensurate with NIH guidelines.
