The Clark Laboratory and Monaghan Laboratory at Northeastern University are seeking a postdoc for an NIH-funded project to image acetylcholine in the mouse peripheral nervous system. This project is an exciting opportunity to use a relatively mature fluorescent nanosensor to image neural communication in vivo. The goal of the project is to use real-time imaging of acetylcholine release in the peripheral nervous system to understand nerve-organ interactions. The project includes the use of genetic mouse models and live imaging using 2-photon microscopy in a brand new imaging facility at Northeastern University.
Qualified candidates will need to have a PhD or MD. Preference will be given to applicants with experience in mouse surgery, neurophysiology, and in vivo imaging.
Interested candidates should email a cover letter describing their research background, future plans, and academic Curriculum Vitae to Dr. James Monaghan’s attention (firstname.lastname@example.org). Please feel free to contact both Dr. Clark (email@example.com) and Dr. Monaghan if you have questions.
