Post-Doctoral Researcher sought at CNMC and Howard University

Applications are sought for Joint-Postdoctoral Scholar positions at Children’s National Medical Center and Howard University. These are full-time, 24-month, NIH-funded positions, with the possibility for renewal. The overall goal of this program is to examine neuronal cell diversity in the mature amygdala and how these cells become wired together to form mature brain circuits. Our current study seeks to understand embryonic development in relation to circuit function of the medial nucleus of the amygdala; an inhibitory nucleus comprised of both local and projection inhibitory GABAergic neurons. These objectives will be achieved by characterizing the electrophysiological connectivity of cells within the medial amygdala that are derived from a unique progenitor pool (Dbx1). The project incorporates multi-disciplinary approaches including patch clamp electrophysiology, optogenetics and genetics. The successful candidate(s) will become part of an interdisciplinary research team including Dr. Joshua Corbin (Center for Neuroscience, Children’s National Medical Center), and Dr. Kevin Jones (Biology Department, Howard University). The ideal candidate will have the following qualifications: ·PhD in Neuroscience, physiology, neurobiology, pharmacology, genetics or a related field. ·Track record of productivity and innovation ·Background experience in synaptic physiology, or in vivo electrophysiology, pharmacology animal behavior or optogenetics. ·Ability to work in a collaborative environment ·Desire to conduct cutting-edge research To apply please send a cover letter, curriculum vitae, and the names an contact information of three potential references to Kevin Jones (Kevin.jones1@Howard.edu). Informal inquiries are encouraged and the position will remain open until a suitable candidate is found. Start date is flexible. Children’s National Medical Center and Howard University are dedicated to building a diverse community in their training and employment programs. Minorities are strongly encouraged to apply.
