Temple University Post-doc position available

An NIH-funded postdoctoral position is available immediately to investigate synaptic plasticity underlying cocaine addiction and relapse using rodent models. Research in the lab utilizes behavioral models of addiction combined with behavioral pharmacology, cell and molecular biology as well as patch-clamp electrophysiology. For details, please visit: https://sites.temple.edu/briandlab

We are seeking a highly motivated electrophysiologist who is interested in learning behavioral models. The successful candidate will have published proficiency in whole-cell slice electrophysiology and synaptic plasticity. Experience with rodent behavioral models would be preferred but is not mandatory.

We seek highly qualified and motivated postdoctoral fellows who are prepared to make major discoveries. The successful applicant is expected to have a PhD degree in neuroscience or related field, strong communication skills, a record of scientific productivity, and a desire to work independently and cooperatively with a team. The fellow will benefit from both the outstanding environment in the lab and the highly collaborative Temple University community.

Interested candidates should send a Cover Letter, Curriculum Vitae and names of three references to Dr. Lisa Briand: lbriand@temple.edu
