Postdoctoral Position to study neural circuit development and neural developmental disorders

LSU School of Medicine

New Orleans, LA

ID: 7055693
Posted: February 2, 2019
Application Deadline: Open Until Filled

Job Description

Our laboratory studies neural circuit development and speech and language related neural developmental disorders such as autisms. In particular, we use the songbird as a model to study the molecular mechanisms underlying neural circuit development, sensitive period plasticity, and vocal behavior. We employ a multidisciplinary approach to investigate gene and epigenetic regulation, neurogenesis, dendritic and synaptic development, and vocal learning behavior (Shi et al., eLife 2018).

We are seeking an energetic and self-motivated individual with a recent PhD in molecular neuroscience or related fields to join our team. Broad experiences in molecular cloning, gene regulation, Western blot, immunostaining, viral work, and animal behavior are especially desirable.

Applicants should send CV, research statement, and names and contact information of three references to: xli4@lsuhsc.edu.
