A Postdoctoral Fellow position is available in the lab of June Liu, Ph.D. in the School of Medicine, Department of Cell Biology and Anatomy at LSU Health Sciences Center in New Orleans to study synaptic and neural circuit plasticity in brain slices and its role in learning and memory. We are particularly interested in an emotional stress-induced change in endocannabinoid signaling and synaptic transmission and the effects of stress on the activity of a neuronal circuit that is associated with learning/memory (see J. Neurosci.31:501, 2011, 29:381, 2009; Nature Neurosci. 13:223, 2010; Cell Reports, 17:86, 2016; J Neurophysiol. 115:271, 2016). Additional information can be obtained from Dr. June Liu (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Ph.D. in Neurobiology, Cell Biology, Physical Science or related field of study.
The ideal candidate would have experience in electrophysiology and Ca2+ imaging.
Qualified candidates should submit a curriculum vitae, a brief description of research interests, and contact information for three references.
