The goal of Dr. Qing-song Liu’s lab is to understand the molecular and neural circuit mechanisms that drive diverse pathological states, such as drug addiction, anxiety and depressive behavior. The lab utilizes many modern and cutting-edge experimental approaches, including slice and in vivo electrophysiology, optogenetics, fast-scan cyclic voltammetry, in vivo calcium imaging with fiber photometry and miniscopes, and sophisticated behavioral paradigms such as drug self-administration. Dr. Qing-song Liu is highly supportive of the career development of his postdocs and trainees and encourages and supports applications for fellowship grants (e.g. F32 awards) and research career development awards (e.g. K99/R00 awards). Funding is available for work on diverse projects, so an interested applicant could pick the project or topic they are most interested in.
Applicants should be highly-motivated, productive, willing to work collaboratively with members of the lab, and have (or anticipate having) a PhD, PharmD, MD, or DO in a relevant research area.
