Postdoctoral Researcher: Marsden Lab
North Carolina State University
|Type of Position:||Postdoctoral Researcher|
Description & Details:
The Marsden Lab is seeking a postdoctoral researcher to spearhead a project investigating the cellular and molecular mechanisms that regulate sensory responsiveness. Sensory over-responsiveness is a debilitating condition often experienced by those with anxiety disorders and/or autism, and so this work is very clinically relevant. The project will combine high-resolution imaging of synapse dynamics, neuronal activity, and behavior to uncover links between the actin cytoskeleton, neural circuit function, and auditory sensitivity. You will receive training in all of these methods, along with mentorship in written and oral communication, in applying for grants/fellowships, and in teaching skills.
NC State is a fantastic place to do your postdoc, with a tightly-knit and growing neuroscience community, plentiful opportunities for community engagement and partnership with industry, and many amazing scientists to collaborate with across the Research Triangle. This postdoc position is fully-funded by the lab’s recent R01 award from the National Institute of Neurological Disease and Stroke (NINDS)! To apply, send the following documents to Dr. Marsden (email@example.com), with “Marsden Lab – Postdoc Application” in the Subject line:
