Neuroscience: Synaptic Plasticity and Function of Hippocampal CA2

Position Desscription:A postdoctoral fellow position is available in the Synaptic and Developmental Plasticity Group directed by Serena M. Dudek to study hippocampal area CA2. We seek a creative independent scientist with experience in neurobiology related to the understanding of synaptic plasticity or hippocampal function. Investigations will include in vivo recording, whole-cell patch recordings, and/or hippocampal development. For more information about our research, see Dudek, et al. Nature Rev Neurosci. 71:89, 2016, and Alexander and Farris, et al. Nat. Commun. 7:1030, 2016.http://www.niehs.nih.gov/research/atniehs/labs/ln/pi/sdp/index.cfm We have state-of-the-art facilities, core labs and funding for this research. NIH offers excellent salary and health care packages to its trainees, and NIEHS is proximal to other top research and technology institutions. Qualifications:Applicants must possess a Ph.D. degree in Neurobiology or a related field, superior communication skills in English,…
