We are looking for a highly motivated postdoctoral scientist who wants to advance exciting and innovative research in synaptic biology. Our research spans from molecular mechanisms of synapse development to the functional roles of synapse specification within networks. If you can strongly relate to our goals, want to apply different methodologies and levels of thinking, and pay utmost attention to the quality of your work, then we want you to join our group. We emphasize a highly cooperative atmosphere within our lab. In addition to providing your CV, please describe in your application how our research fits your long-term interests and which of our ongoing directions are most attractive to you.
Applicants must have a PhD, at least one first-author publication, and strong skills as experimenter. Experience with advanced imaging methods, molecular approaches, or electrophysiological techniques is highly advantageous for this position.

About Biederer Lab, Tufts University School of Medicine, Boston
Our research is multidisciplinary and each of us integrates multiple approaches in our projects, ranging from molecular and cellular studies to in vivo models. This is guided by our perspective that in order to gain understanding of synaptic biology, you have to work on multiple levels. To enable lab members to build their projects and reach their goals, we emphasize a highly cooperative atmosphere within our group and have strong collaboration partners.
