Postdoctoral researcher positions funded by NIH grants are available to study synaptic plasticity and circuitry mechanisms underlying intellectual disability, anxiety, depression and many other brain functions/dysfunctions. 

They have created many transgenic mouse models, including lines mimicking human de novo mutation, for these studies. Moreover, they use lentivirus injection, in combination with (flox/+) mice or shRNA knockdown to study the effect of many human de novo mutations on synaptic functions using a single cell knockout/molecular replacement approach.
