Aryn Gittis seeks postdoctoral fellows who have a strong background in electrophysiology, optogenetics, or image processing
The Gittis lab studies neural circuits in the basal ganglia and their role in motor control in health and mouse models of Parkinson’s disease.
To apply, please send CV, including contact information for three references, to Dr. Aryn Gittis. E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
Yevgenia Kozorovitskiy seeks postdoctoral fellows interested in developing and leading new projects in 2 broad areas: (1) central actions of oxytocin and other neurohypophyseal modulators, and (2) the regulation and function of de novo dendritic spinogenesis and synaptogenesis
Research in the Kozorovitskiy lab focuses on decoding neuromodulation and neural synapse and circuit plasticity. We are interested in the fundamental elements of neural circuit design and function, and we also seek to decipher how those rules apply in disease states. We pursue these topics through diverse projects in the mouse brain, utilizing a wide array of techniques: multi-laser 2-photon and light-sheet imaging, photolysis and enzymatic uncaging, electrophysiology, molecular and anatomical techniques including proteomics, as well as behavioral analyses. We also develop new synthetic biology and optical tools.
For inquiries contact Yevgenia Kozorovitskiy.
Wenqin Luo seeks qualified individuals to participate in exciting research to investigate the circuits and molecules underlying mammalian somatosensation
The Luo lab employs mouse genetic tools, including advanced transgenic and gene targeted mice for the selective labeling and manipulation of subtypes of somatosensory neurons to study their circuits and unique functions in pain, itch, and touch. Projects will involve using molecular cloning, generating new mouse lines, molecular and cellular neuroscience techniques, primary DRG neuron culture, physiological recording, calcium imaging, and behavior assays.
Please send a letter of interest, an updated c.v. including a list of your publications, and the names/addresses of 3 references to:
Wenqin Luo, M.D. & Ph.D. at email@example.com
