The Intramural Program of the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) is a major research component of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS). Within this program, the Section on Synapse Development Plasticity (chief: Zheng Li, PhD, https://www.nimh.nih.gov/research/research-conducted-at-nimh/principal-investigators/zheng-li.shtml) uses molecular and cellular biology, in vivo two-photon microscopy, and in vivo and ex vivo electrophysiology to investigate the mechanisms underlying synaptic plasticity in normal brains and synaptopathology of psychiatric disorders, such as schizophrenia and mood disorders. Dr. Li’s publications can be found at https://www.nimh.nih.gov/research/research-conducted-at-nimh/principal-investigators/zheng-li.
This is a full-time research position located at the 300 acre Bethesda campus of the NIH, near Washington D.C. This position requires a graduate degree (or foreign equivalent) in neuroscience, developmental biology or cell biology. Research experience in in vivo electrophysiological recording, in vivo two-photon microscopy in behaving mice, electrophysiological recording in brain slices, neural differentiation of iPSCs, biochemistry, and molecular biology is desired. For qualified candidates there are excellent opportunities to pursue research interests in the molecular, cellular and physiological mechanisms of psychiatric diseases. Salary is competitive and commensurate with experience and accomplishments. Send letter of interest, CV, and three references to Dr. Zheng Li (email@example.com).
