The Nectow laboratory at the Princeton Neuroscience Institute is looking for a few motivated and talented postdoctoral or more senior research associates. The lab studies the neurobiology of energy balance (i.e. appetite and energy expenditure) using state-of-the-art imaging, molecular, and functional techniques in mice.
We are currently looking for exceptional candidates with a strong background in neuroscience, particularly with expertise in molecular and behavioral neuroscience.
The term of appointment is one year, with the possibility of renewal based on satisfactory performance and funding.
Princeton University is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer and all qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to age, race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, national origin, disability status, protected veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by law. These positions are subject to the University’s background check policy.
Essential qualifications for these positions include: a Ph.D. in Neuroscience, Biology, or a closely related field; a strong background working with mice; experience with advanced techniques in neuroscience (such as optogenetics/chemogenetics, stereotactic rodent surgery, electrophysiology, microscopy, histology, and/or molecular profiling).
