A full-time Postdoctoral position is available in the Translational Neuroscience Program, University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine (www.tnp.pitt.edu), to participate in NIH-funded projects studying the physiological and morphological properties, as well as transcriptome, of pyramidal neurons during postnatal development of the primate prefrontal cortex. Additional experiments will assess the effects, on the prefrontal cortex network, of reducing pyramidal cell activity using viral vector-mediated silencing tools. Other work involves electrophysiology studies of interneurons and pyramidal cells in mouse prefrontal cortex. Trainees will be mentored by a team of Pitt faculty including Drs DA Lewis, G Gonzalez-Burgos, KN Fish and WR Stauffer. Applicants should have a Ph.D. in Physiology/Neurobiology or related fields, previous experience in electrophysiology, and an interest in multidisciplinary research. Send applications to Drs Lewis (email@example.com) AND Gonzalez-Burgos (firstname.lastname@example.org).
PhD, MD/PhD or MD with experience in basic neuroscience research involving electrophysiology. Send applications to Drs Lewis (email@example.com) AND Gonzalez-Burgos (firstname.lastname@example.org).
