Dr. Abraira’s research utilizes the power of mouse molecular genetics to dissect touch circuits from the skin to the cortex with the long term objective of uncovering an integrative model of touch perception from pain to pleasure and everything in between (www.abrairalab.org).
Successful candidates will benefit from an interactive and supportive neuroscience community that span five Rutgers campuses and two medical schools, with abundant seminars, symposia and collaborations that offer exposure to new ideas, cutting edge techniques and career development. Rutgers University is a diverse campus with direct access to New York City, Philadelphia and Baltimore/Washington DC all rich in career opportunities that span academia, industry, and education.
To apply, please submit a cover letter stating your research interest, a CV, and contact information for references to Dr. Peng Jiang (email@example.com) or Dr. Victoria Abraira (firstname.lastname@example.org).
We are seeking individuals who are self-motivated with a strong commitment to neuroscience research. Candidates should hold a PhD in neurobiology, cell/molecular biology, or related field with one or more first author publications in internationally recognized peer-reviewed journals. Researchers with electrophysiology/patch clamp recordings are especially encouraged to apply. Both positions require experience and willingness to work with mice. Salary will be negotiable and highly competitive.
