Postdoctoral Positions Available in the Soderling Lab:

The Soderling Lab is currently undergoing a major expansion in the area of synaptic physiology and is seeking highly motivated postdoctoral fellows.  The laboratory is focused on how synaptic cytoskeletal remodeling pathways regulate neuronal development and synaptic plasticity and how disruption of these pathways is relevant to neuropsychiatric disorders such as schizophrenia and autism spectrum disorders. Individuals that can apply their expertise in electrophysiology, including patch clamp and field recordings, to projects that will also include conditional mouse mutations relevant to human disorders, in vivo two-photon synaptic imaging, and behavioral analysis are encouraged to apply.  

Interested candidates should forward their curriculum vitae and names of three references to Dr. Scott Soderling by email: scott.soderling@dm.duke.edu

Postdoctoral Positions Available in the Di Talia Lab:

Several positions for postdocs are available in the lab. We seek people with different backgrounds ranging from Applied Math to Cellular and Molecular Biology. Interested candidates should be driven and interested in applying quantitative experimental methods to fundamental questions in developmental biology. They should send a CV and a cover letter expressing their interest in the lab to: stefano.ditalia@duke.edu

 

Postdoctoral Position Available in the Lechler Lab:

Our lab studies the principles of morphogenesis; major projects in the lab include the regulation and mechanism of asymmetric cell divisions and control of cytoskeleton organization by cell adhesion structures. We seek highly motivated colleagues with interests in cell, developmental and stem cell biology. A PhD and a proven track record in experimental research are required. Experience with mice, cell culture, and/or time-lapse imaging are a plus. 

Interested candidates should email their CV and a statement of past research accomplishments and interests along with the names/contact information for three references to: 

lechler@cellbio.duke.edu

 

Postdoctoral Position Available in the Wang Lab Studying Somatosensory Circuits:

A postdoctoral position immediately available at Dr. Fan Wang's laboratory studying the assembly and the functions of the mouse somatosensory circuit, with a focus on the whisker mediated touch sensory system. Molecular genetic methods are used to label distinct types of sensory neurons, to trace their axonal and synaptic connections, and to perturb their neuronal activities. The goal is to begin to understand how distinct types of touch sensory neurons encode different physical stimuli. We seek highly motivated candidates with strong interest in sensory systems. Prior trains in electrophysiology, behavioral analyses, using viral vectors or in mouse genetic manipulations are highly desirable (but not absolutely required).

Interested candidates please e-mail your curriculum vitae, a statement of past research and accomplishments and the names/contact information for three references to: 

f.wang@cellbio.duke.edu

 

Postdoctoral Opportunity in in Tracey Lab Studying Behavioral and Molecular Neuroscience of Drosophila:

The Tracey Laboratory at Duke University Medical Center seeks a postdoctoral scientist. Our laboratory has developed novel forward genetic screens to isolate pain signaling genes from Drosophila. Candidates with strong publication record will be given first priority. Many projects are available; identification of novel molecules of nociception, understanding neuronal circuitry involved in nociception, and in vivo imaging of neurons with high-speed confocal microscopy. The exact project will be tailored according to the interests and prior experience of the candidate. Duke University Medical Center provides an outstanding learning environment for postdoctoral training. Dr. Tracey is a member of the Departments of Anesthesia, Cell Biology, and Neurobiology.
