Synaptic and neural network plasticity

The Department of Cell Biology and Anatomy at LSU Health Sciences Center in New Orleans, is anticipating having an opening for one postdoctoral fellow position. This position will be to study synaptic and neural network 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 network 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). A strong background in neurobiology, cell biology or physical sciences and a desire to learn electrophysiology are important. Candidates with prior experience in electrophysiology and Ca2+ imaging preferred. Additional information can be obtained from Dr. June Liu ( Interested applicants with a Ph.D. should send a brief description of research interests, curriculum vitae and 3 reference letters electronically to referencing position #00049726.
