Our lab uses mouse genetics, behavioral, morphological, optogenetic and electrophysiological methods to study neural circuits of sensory processing. In particular we are interested in the circuit basis of pain and itch sensation in the brain. For related works please see Nature 2007, 448:700-703; Science 2009, 325:1531-4; Cell 2011, 147:447-458.
We are looking for highly motivated individuals for two postdoc positions immediately available at Institute of Neuroscience, Shanghai, China. Applicants should have a Ph.D. in neuroscience or a related discipline and are expected to develop a strong research project.
