The Brain and Mind Research Institute at Weill Cornell Medicine in New York City is seeking an outstanding candidate for a postdoctoral position to work on NIH-funded projects aimed at elucidating the brain circuitry involved in neurogenic hypertension. This is an opportunity to work in a highly collaborative environment and to participate in multidisciplinary studies utilizing diverse approaches including molecular biology, neurophysiology, viral-mediated gene transfer, and high-resolution electron microscopic imaging.
The candidate must hold a doctoral-level degree in neuroscience, physiology, or other relevant area; a background in hypertension or related autonomic nervous system dysfunction, particularly in mouse models, is advantageous. Further, applicants should have demonstrated experience in one or more of the following approaches: electrophysiology (patch-clamp preferred), radiotelemetric blood pressure recording in awake freely-moving animals, and/or in vivo recording of sympathetic nervous system activity. Experience with optogenetic/chemogenetic technologies is desirable.
Although the successful candidate should be capable of conducting independent research, the ability to function well in a team setting is also required, given the highly collaborative nature of these projects. Strong verbal/written communication is essential.
Interested candidates should submit a single PDF file containing a CV, a concise statement of research interests, and the names/contact information for three references to Dr. Michael Glass at email@example.com
