The laboratory of Dr. Herbert Zheng Wu in the Department of Neuroscience at Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai has an exciting opportunity for a motivated Postdoctoral Fellow to join our team. The postdoctoral fellow will lead independent projects to investigate the neurobiology of social and cognitive behaviors in mice.
The Wu Laboratory is interested in how social and learned behaviors are flexibly controlled by the animal’s experience, internal state, and interaction with other conspecifics. How is the flexible control implemented across seconds, days, and years? How do hard-wired and learned circuits coordinate to balance stability and adaptability? And how are these processes disrupted by mental illnesses? To understand these questions, our lab will apply a variety of methodologies including imaging, electrophysiology, optogenetics, single-cell omics, quantitative behavioral analysis, and computational modeling. Please visit our website to learn more about our research:
You should be highly motivated, critical, inquisitive and have excellent communication skills. The candidate should have a recent Ph.D or M.D/Ph.D in a relevant field including but not limited to neuroscience, biology, psychology, biomedical engineering, and computer science. A strong skillset in molecular, cellular, systems or computational neuroscience is expected. We are particularly interested in candidates with experience in neural circuits of behavior or systems neuroscience.
You can expect the PI to have a sincere interest in your work and support you at every stage of your career. We will help you realize your potential, do meaningful and fun science with the team, and develop a vision as an independent scientist. You will join a vibrant neuroscience community at Mount Sinai and will have opportunities to interact with a broad network of neuroscientists in the New York City. We will provide a competitive salary as well as housing and health benefits.
To apply, please send a cover letter, your CV and the contact information of three referees to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for your interest in joining our team.
