Job Details

The Paradis and Grienberger Labs at Brandeis University are excited to announce the availability of a Postdoctoral Researcher position. We are seeking dynamic and motivated individuals with a Ph.D. degree to join our innovative and stimulating research groups. Our labs bring together investigators with expertise in in vivo circuit analysis (Grienberger) and molecular and cellular developmental neuroscience  (Paradis). Together, we aim to translate our understanding of activity-dependent gene regulation to circuit function in an intact mammalian nervous system.


The project aims to uncover the molecular mechanisms of synaptic plasticity and its impact on learning and memory formation. We take a multidisciplinary approach by combining cutting-edge technologies, including two-photon Ca2+ imaging and whole-cell recordings in awake behaving animals along with biochemistry, molecular biology, genetics, and cutting-edge imaging approaches both in vitro and in vivo to elucidate the molecular mechanisms of circuit plasticity. This is an ideal position for someone with systems neuroscience training who wishes to learn molecular and cellular neuroscience, or vice versa.


We offer you exceptional research opportunities to take your scientific career to the next level, as well as strong academic interactions and collaborations across Brandeis’ top-tier neuroscience and biology labs, and beyond. To learn more, visit our websites at and


Brandeis University is the perfect place to advance your career in neuroscience. It offers a stimulating and exceptional environment for scientific exploration. Located a few miles outside of Boston with easy commuting options, it has a uniquely interdisciplinary Neuroscience community spanning Biology, Psychology, Biochemistry, and Mathematics and. Brandeis also offers excellent career development programs for postdoctoral fellows, including the NIH T32 postdoctoral fellowship program.


We welcome applicants from diverse backgrounds and areas of expertise, including (neuro)developmental biology with genetics experience, molecular biology, electrophysiology and imaging, mouse surgery and handling related to neural circuit function, and molecular and cellular neuroscience. We are committed to building a vibrant group of scientists from diverse backgrounds and place a strong emphasis on teamwork and mentorship.


Please submit your application, including a curriculum vitae, a brief cover letter outlining your research interests and goals, and the contact information of three individuals who will provide letters of reference. Informal inquiries are also welcome. We look forward to hearing from you!
