Postdoctoral Scholar will be an integral part of a team of postdocs and graduate students working to understand mechanisms of plasticity in corticostriatal and thalamostriatal circuits related to motor output in Parkinson’s disease. This large project includes in vivo calcium imaging, in vivo multiunit recordings, channelrhodopsin assisted circuit mapping, proteomics and translatomics. With expertise in patch clamp electrophysiology, you will lead efforts to understand mechanisms at the cellular and synaptic level. You will also have the opportunity to expand your skillset by performing vivo calcium imaging, in vivo multiunit recordings, molecular biology and/or biochemistry depending on your interests. In addition to the Seal Lab, the team is formed from the laboratories of Drs. Bryan Hooks, Matt MacDonald and Susanne Ahmari in Neurobiology and Psychiatry at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine and Drs. Aryn Gittis and Eric Yttri in the Department of Biology at Carnegie Mellon. Expertise in patch clamp electrophysiology in brain slices and excellent communication skills required. Experience with 2-photon microscopy in vitro or in vivo a plus but not required. This is an NIH funded position. Competitive salary. Full benefits and firm commitment to your professional development and success. The University of Pittsburgh is in the top 15 US medical schools and the top 5 for NIH funding.
