Job ID
27725
Place
Guelph, Ontario/Canada

Description

The Khokhar Lab (www.khokharlab.com) researches the interactions between substance use and serious mental illness, with an eye toward treatment of these disorders using a variety of behavioural and circuit-interrogation methods. The Post-doctoral Fellow will conduct brain imaging and behavioural experiments assessing the effects of alcohol drinking and chemogenetic or pharmacologic manipulation in a rat model of schizophrenia (CIHR-funded grant). Previous experience with pre-clinical MRI imaging is an asset. In addition, previous experience with schizophrenia (e.g., pre-pulse inhibition) and addiction-like behaviours (e.g., self-administration) would be beneficial. The Post-doctoral fellow will also provide input with respect to appropriate methodology, procedures, equipment and standards to produce required research data and apply specialized knowledge and principles to review, appraise and interpret published literature, summarize research findings, and draft scientific/technical reports, manuscripts, grant proposals while establishing and maintaining effective relationships with lab members, and presenting research findings (may include presenting findings at conferences).
