Full Time - Experienced
Academic / Research
The Spinal Circuits and Plasticity Unit at the National Institutes of Health, led by Dr. Levine, has a postdoctoral position available to use cutting-edge techniques to investigate neuronal function and plasticity in the mammalian spinal cord.
We seek to uncover the molecular, cellular, and circuit bases of spinal cord plasticity by integrating a wide variety of techniques, including single cell sequencing, in vivo cell manipulations, mouse behavior, circuit tracing, cell culture, and spinal cord injury. Our lab is in the Porter Neuroscience Research Center, a world-class center for basic and translational neuroscience with outstanding facilities, resources, and a unique funding environment on the main campus of NIH. More information about the lab can be found at: https://neuroscience.nih.gov/ninds/Faculty/Profile/ariel-levine.aspx.
To apply, please email (1) a CV including publications, (2) a letter summarizing research accomplishments and interests, and (3) three letters of reference to Dr. Levine.
The NIH is dedicated to building a diverse community in its training and employment programs. DHHS and NIH are Equal Opportunity Employers.
Requirements include (1) a strong background in molecular biology and/or neurobiology, (2) a record of publication, (3) having a PhD, MD, or MD/PhD (or being a candidate for one of these degrees). Salary, benefits, and travel opportunities will be commensurate with experience and qualifications.
