POSTDOCTORAL POSITIONS IN ELECTROPHYSIOLOGY – BRAIN INITIATIVE @CALTECH

The Lois Lab (http://carlosloislab.blogspot.com.es) is seeking highly motivated individuals to work on a research project funded by the NIH BRAIN initiative focused on the assembly and wiring of brain circuits. Our laboratory is interested in the mechanisms that regulate the connectivity between neurons, and the mechanisms by which brain circuits give rise to behavior. We focus on the process of neuronal integration during adult neurogenesis in the mouse olfactory bulb and in the song system of songbirds. The research combines techniques in electrophysiology, molecular biology, neuroanatomy, 2-photon imaging, and transgenesis in rodents and songbirds.

Representative recent publications:
• Increased cell-intrinsic excitability induces synaptic changes in new neurons in the adult dentate gyrus that require npas4. (2013) J Neurosci. 33(18):7928-40.
• Wandering neuronal migration in the postnatal vertebrate forebrain. (2012) J Neurosci. 32(4):1436-1446.
• Watching synaptogenesis in the adult brain. (2010) Annu Rev Neurosci. 33:131-49.
• Genetically increased cell-intrinsic excitability enhances neuronal integration into adult brain circuits (2010) Neuron 65:32-39.

REQUIREMENTS:
A Ph.D. in neuroscience, molecular biology, biophysics, or a related field is required. Candidates should have a record of research excellence demonstrated by publication. Expertise in electrophysiological recordings is necessary. Applicants who are motivated to develop careers as independent investigators are especially encouraged to apply.

TERMS OF EMPLOYMENT:
Depending on qualifications, postdoctoral fellows will receive salaries according to NIH guidelines (starting salary is 43,000 USD or approx. 33,500 Euros). The positions are fully funded by NIH grants. It is anticipated that the postdoctoral fellows will stay in the lab for 4-5 years to complete their project.

CONTACT:
In your application, include a detailed curriculum vitae, a short statement on future research goals, and names and contact details for at least two references to carloselois@me.com
