Postdoctoral Fellowship

The Spinal Circuits and Plasticity Unit
Position Type
Postdoctoral Fellowship

The Spinal Circuits and Plasticity Unit at the National Institutes of Health, led by Dr. Ariel Levine, has a postdoctoral position available to investigate the spinal cord cellular basis of motor behavior.

The Levine lab seeks to uncover the cellular and circuit mechanisms of motor behavior. In particular, we want to know how the diverse cell types of the mouse spinal cord mediate movement and cooperate with CNS-wide networks for motor control. We use a wide array of techniques including single cell sequencing, cell-type specific genetic and viral manipulations, circuit tracing, electrophysiological recordings, and behavior analysis. The lab is located within the Porter Neuroscience Research Center, a world-class center for basic and translational neuroscience with outstanding facilities, resources, and a unique funding environment on the main campus of NIH.

Applicants should have (1) a PhD or MD degree (either completed or nearly completed), (2) experience in neurobiology or molecular biology, and (3) a record of publication. To apply, please email a CV, a letter summarizing research accomplishments and interests, and the contact information for three references to Dr. Levine.
