The Corbin lab in the Center for Neuroscience Research (CNR) at Children’s National in Washington DC is seeking a post-doctoral fellow to study the embryonic and adolescent development and function of the amygdala (e.gs. Prakash et al., Journal of Comparative Neurology, 2023; Alderman et al., Neuron, in press; bioRxiv 2022.09.23.509244). Experience with either modern neuro-developmental approaches (e.gs., in utero electroporation, CRISPR mutagenesis, RNAseq) or functional dissection of circuitry (e.gs., viral and optogenetic circuit tracing, in vivo recording, in vivo behavioral manipulation) are a strongly preferred. The position is open to US citizens and non-citizens, but candidates holding US citizenship or a green card will be eligible to be hired as an NIH T32 post-doctoral fellow. Interested candidates attending the 2023 Society for Neuroscience Meeting can stop by posters PSTR059.06, PSTR122.01 or presentation NANO26.07 to learn more about our work and this opportunity.
The candidate will be joining a highly collaborative and supportive center renowned for strengths in animal models of CNS development and neurodevelopmental disorders with exceptional state-of-the-art cores.
Interested candidates should send a CV along with contacts for 3 letters of reference to:
Joshua Corbin, PhD
Professor of Pediatrics
