A postdoctoral position is available to study the development and regeneration of peripheral neural circuits. Of particular interest for this position is the investigation of survival and apoptosis signals that govern the establishment of somatosensory and autonomic neurons, as well as mechanisms of axonal regeneration of spinal motor neurons. The laboratory employs state-of-the-art cellular, molecular, biochemical, mouse transgenic and imaging approaches for the interrogation of circuit development and physiology. The laboratory environment is energetic, collegial, highly collaborative, and strives for excellence. For a detailed description of our research goals visit the laboratory website:
The applicant must have, or be very near to receiving, a PhD in Neuroscience or a related field. A familiarity with modern cellular/molecular techniques is required, and a familiarity of the use of mice as a model organism is preferred.
