Job ID: 53358
Post-doctoral position in synaptic and circuit mechanisms underlying neurodevelopmental disorders
Position: Post-doctoral Position
Deadline: 1 June 2022
Employment Start Date: 1 September 2021
Contract Length: 3-5 years
Country: United States
Institution: Northwestern University School of Medicine
We are recruiting postdoctoral fellows with a strong background in the neurosciences, and interests in understanding the synaptic and circuit basis of neurodevelopmental and neuropsychiatric disorders. Expertise in patch clamp electrophysiology or advanced imaging would be an advantage, combined with a strong motivation to develop new in vitro and in vivo assays for monitoring neuronal and circuit function in mouse models. Candidates who have complementary experience in mouse behavioral studies and want to expand their technical repertoire are also encouraged to apply.
We are a well-equipped group in a vibrant community with access to excellent core facilities. We are looking for highly motivated, creative individuals with a passion for neuroscience research. We provide a multidisciplinary group for scientific training and a collaborative collegial environment for career development. Interested individuals with recently completed PhDs should forward curriculum vitae, a description of research interests and experience, along with the names and addresses of references.
