The Department of Neurological Surgery and The Miami Project to Cure Paralysis at the University of Miami, Miller School of Medicine, has an exciting opportunity for a Postdoctoral Associate position in the laboratory of Dr. Coleen Atkins. This position will study the circuitry changes resulting from traumatic brain injury. The focus of the Atkins’ laboratory is to develop cognitive therapeutics for chronic traumatic brain injury. The postdoctoral associate will study this problem at the electrophysiology level, using hippocampal slice recordings and in vivo multielectrode array recordings. Research projects will study the interaction of traumatic brain injury, Alzheimer's disease and stress.
Candidates are required to have a PhD in neuroscience or an area related to neuroscience. Qualified candidates will have experience in acute hippocampal slice electrophysiology recordings in rats and mice using field recordings as well as patch clamp techniques. Experience using in vivo multi-electrode array recordings in awake behaving rats is preferred.
