The Circuit Repair Laboratory, led by Edmund Hollis, II, Ph.D., is currently seeking an exceptional, motivated, and enthusiastic Postdoctoral Fellow with an interest in systems neuroscience. Our laboratory studies the plasticity of motor and sensory systems following spinal cord injury. These studies will utilize optogenetic and chemogenetic testing of circuit function, in vivo multiphoton imaging, and assessments of circuit function in combination with anatomical and behavioral tools.
Our research is described in more detail at https://burke.weill.cornell.edu/hollis-lab.
Preferred qualifications include
- Ph.D. in Neuroscience, Computational Neuroscience, Biomedical Sciences, or a related field
- Experience with one or more of the following: multiphoton microscopy, small animal surgery, rodent behavioral studies, or electrophysiology
- Coding experience with MATLAB or Python is welcome, though not required
- Strong communication, organizational skills, attention to detail, and ability to work as part of a collaborative team are required
- The position offers opportunities for scientific training and growth and requires a dedication to mentorship and teaching within the lab

The Burke Neurological Institute is a nonprofit leading scientific research institute devoted to advancing the study of neurological diseases and injuries. The overarching goal of the Institute, an academic affiliate of Weill Cornell Medicine, is to leverage the most innovative and highest quality neuroscience to restore brain and spinal cord function in those with neurological injury including stroke, spinal cord injury, traumatic brain injury, Alzheimer’s disease, age related macular degeneration. Twenty faculty funded by federal and private agencies work alongside 100 individuals on a beautiful 60-acre campus in White Plains, New York, 15 miles from the heart of New York City.
Compensation includes NIH scale salary, a housing supplement (or subsidized housing), and full health benefits. The position is expected to commence in the summer of 2022.
Burke Neurological Institute is an equal opportunity employer.
