A full-time Postdoctoral position is available in the Translational Neuroscience Program, University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine (www.tnp.pitt.edu), to participate in NIH-funded projects studying the physiological and morphological properties, as well as transcriptome, of pyramidal neurons during postnatal development of the primate prefrontal cortex. Additional experiments will assess the effects, on the prefrontal cortex network, of reducing pyramidal cell activity using viral vector-mediated silencing tools. Other work involves electrophysiology studies of interneurons and pyramidal cells in mouse prefrontal cortex. Trainees will be mentored by a team of Pitt faculty including Drs DA Lewis, G Gonzalez-Burgos, KN Fish and WR Stauffer.
Candidates should have a PhD, MD/PhD or MD degree, with experience in basic neuroscience research involving electrophysiology in brain slices. Experience in fluorescence microscopy is an advantage.
