The Kramer Lab at UC Berkeley is seeking a dedicated and enthusiastic post-doc or senior scientist for studies on synaptic integration, circuitry, and plasticity in the mouse brain. Our studies utilize novel chemical tools that enable photo-control of specified neurotransmitter receptors (Lin et al., 2015, Neuron 88:879-891) and voltage-gated ion channels (Mourot et al., 2012, Nature Methods. 9:396-402). We are using these tools in brain slices and in the intact brain in vivo to open new doors for understanding the molecular and cellular basis of neural function and dysfunction.
