Postdoc position available at the Beeler lab (https://beelerlab.ws.gc.cuny.edu) at Queens College CUNY, located in Queens in New York City. My lab studies dopamine, decision-making and corticostriatal plasticity, with an emphasis on regulation of behavioral energy expenditure. We use mouse genetic tools, fast-scan cyclic voltammetry, patch-clamp electrophyiosology, optogenetics and fiber photometry as well as multiple behavioral paradigms, particularly semi-naturalistic, homecage operant paradigms. Exciting new directions are emerging in the lab and I am looking for a motivated postdoc to join. The position will involve learning more than one method/technique, including both physiological and behavioral methods, with a goal of linking physiology and behavior as much as possible. The ideal candidate will have prior experience with at least one physiological method (cyclic voltammetry, electrophysiology, optogenetics, etc.) and willingness to learn and develop skills in other methods as appropriate to answer the question(s) at hand.
Interested candidates should submit an application online via the CUNY application system, including a CV and cover letter :
Questions may be directed to Jeff Beeler at firstname.lastname@example.org
The position is research focused. For postdocs interested in acquiring teaching responsibility, limited adjunct teaching opportunities are available. Although the job is not supervisory, postdocs naturally assume a leadership position in lab. The lab includes doctoral, masters and undergraduate students.
1. PhD in Neuroscience or related field 2. Experience in neuroscience research 3. Experience and skill in at least one physiological method (electrophysiology, optogenetics, cyclic voltammetry, fiber photometry, etc.)
