A postdoctoral associate is sought with experience in optogenetics and/or electrophysiological recordings in freely moving rodents. This postdoc will join the Thorn and McIntyre labs to explore brain substrates of memory and extinction of conditioned fear. The NIH-funded postdoctoral associate will carry out research investigating the mechanisms by which vagus nerve stimulation (VNS) enhances extinction of conditioned fear in rodents. This is a unique opportunity to do translational research and merge technologies across two labs: Dr. Catherine Thorn’s lab uses multisite recordings in behaving animals to study neural firing patterns and synchrony across brain regions and Dr. Christa McIntyre’s lab uses optogenetic approaches to investigate the circuitry involved in memory and extinction of conditioned fear. As a member of the Department of Neuroscience at UT Dallas, affiliations are possible with the Texas Biomedical Device Center, the Center for Advanced Pain Studies, The Callier Center for Communication Disorders, The Center for Vital Longevity, and The Center for Brain Health. Applicants must have a PhD or MD degree. Applicants should submit a curriculum vitae, names of 3 references and a cover letter expressing their interest and qualifications to Christa McIntyre, christa.mcintyre@utdallas.edu.

 

UT Dallas is committed to graduating well-rounded members of the global community whose education has prepared them for rewarding lives and productive careers in a constantly changing world. A diversity of people, ideas and perspectives is crucial to our vision and mission. Applicants with backgrounds historically underrepresented in STEM are encouraged to apply.
