A postdoctoral position is available in the lab of Dr. Natalia De Marco at the Brain and Mind Research Institute within Weill Cornell Medical College, New York, NY, USA (http://natdemarco.net). The project focuses on the study of genetic and activity-dependent programs contributing to the assembly of interneuron circuits in the murine neocortex. A combination of viral tracing techniques, mouse genetics, optogenetic-guided patch-clamp recordings and in vivo calcium imaging will be used in this project.
We are looking for enthusiastic postdoc candidates preferable with a strong background in neuroscience or related field. Prior experience in electrophysiology, in vivo imaging or mouse genetics is desirable. Interested applicants should send application materials including a CV that describes past research experience and contact information of at least three references by email to Dr. Natalia De Marco Garcia (firstname.lastname@example.org), Assistant Professor, Brain and Mind Research Institute, Weill Cornell Medical College.
