We study the molecular mechanisms underlying neural circuit development, sensitive period plasticity, and vocal communication in the songbird, using it as a model for speech and language development and related neural developmental disorders such as autisms. We employ a multidisciplinary approach to investigate gene and epigenetic regulation, dendritic and synaptic development, and vocal learning behavior (Shi et al., eLife 2018).
We are seeking an energetic and self-motivated individual with a recent PhD in molecular neuroscience or related fields. Broad experiences in molecular cloning, gene regulation, epigenetics, Western blot, immunostaining, viral work, and animal behavior are especially desirable.
Applicants should send CV, research statement, and names and contact information of three references to: email@example.com.
