Postdoctoral Fellow in Synaptic and Circuit Plasticity

Position: Post-doctoral Position

Deadline: 30 September 2023

Employment Start Date: 1 October 2022

Contract Length: 1-5 years

City: Chicago

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 basis of synaptic and circuit plasticity and their relation to cognitive disorders. Expertise in patch clamp electrophysiology or advanced imaging would be an advantage, combined with a strong motivation to develop new multidisciplinary in vitro and in vivo approaches 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.
