A postdoctoral position is immediately available in the laboratory of Dr. Xiaoming Jin in the Stark Neurosciences Research Institute at Indiana University School of Medicine. We are interested in structure and plasticity of cortical circuits, and epileptogenesis following traumatic brain injury. These topics will be investigated with a range of techniques, including laser scanning photostimulation combined with whole cell patch clamp recording, organotypic slice culture, gene gun transfection, time lapse confocal imaging, and in vivo two-photon imaging. The aim of the current project is to understand the roles and regulation of axonal sprouting in regeneration and epilepsy after traumatic brain injury.
The successful applicant will be expected to have strong ability and motivation to be a major contributor to the lab’s research program. Applicants should have a doctoral degree in neuroscience or a related discipline. Experience in patch clamp recording is highly desirable. Salary will be commensurate with relevant experience. Please email your current CV including the names of three references to firstname.lastname@example.org.
