Postdoc Opening

Genetics of Neuronal Signaling Section and Circuits, Synapses, and Molecular Signaling Section
Position Type
Postdoctoral Fellowship

There are two sections involved:

  1. Section on Genetics and Neuronal Signaling (Talmage, PI)
  2. Section on circuits synapses and molecular Signaling (Role, PI)

Position Description

We seek talented and curious scientists to work with us at the interface of 2 laboratories that, together, seek to understand the role of neuregulin 1 signaling in the development, maintenance and, ultimately, the catastrophic degeneration of the cholinergic basal forebrain projections that underlie learning and memory.  The double lab environment is highly interactive and employs state of the art molecular, imaging and activity-based assays to study cognition over the lifespan from the basic cellular and molecular biology to systems physiology and behavior. Lab members collaborate on projects developing novel molecular probes for mapping memory engrams and conducting all means of transcriptomic and physiological assessments of circuit components encoding memory.


PHD in Neuroscience or equivalent.   Research in cellular and molecular neuroscience strongly preferred.

To apply

Applicants should submit a cover letter, a current CV, and the contact information for 3 references to Dr. Lorna Role and /or to Dr David Talmage.
