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.

- PhD in Neuroscience, Pharmacology, Physiology or other related field or MD: 0-2 years of relevant experience in research environment is required
- Expertise in patch clamp electrophysiology is required.
- Experience in patch clamp electrophysiological recording in brain slice is desired.
- People with more experience of patch clamp electrophysiology in brain slice will be hired at a higher level and compensated accordingly.
