Postdoc in Developmental Plasticity of Mammalian Visual Circuitry

 

Seeking talented and highly motivated Ph.D. for a postdoc in development and plasticity of visual pathways in the laboratory of Professor Sarah Pallas at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst.  This position will provide the qualified candidate with the opportunity to gain research skills across systems, cellular, and molecular neuroscience, using several mammalian species as subjects.  The lab is well positioned to address long-standing questions about the interactions between sensory experience and genetic programs during development, plasticity, and evolution of the visual pathway.  Translational aspects involve mechanisms of visual perception, recovery from traumatic brain injury, developmental brain disorders, and optic nerve regeneration.  The successful applicant would have the unique opportunity to be working in a new lab with new equipment and a well-established and funded investigator.  See https://sites.google.com/view/pallas-lab/ for more information.  

To apply, please submit a curriculum vitae, cover letter describing research accomplishments, and contact information for three references to spallas@umass.edu.
