Postdoctoral position in Developmental Neurobiology

Posted by , on 15 September 2021

Location: Columbia, South Carolina

Closing Date: 31 October 2021

The Poulain lab (www.poulainlab.org) at the University of South Carolina is searching for a talented and motivated postdoc! Our NIH-funded research program focuses on the cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying neural circuit formation and maintenance in vivo. We use the zebrafish visual system as a model and a unique combination of genetic, embryological and high resolution live imaging approaches to test the role of selective axon degeneration in circuit wiring and the contribution of trans-axonal signaling to retinotopic map formation and maintenance. Candidates should hold a PhD in neurobiology, cell and molecular biology, or related fields, and have a strong interest in neural development. Significant experience in molecular biology, genetics and fluorescence imaging approaches is required. Experience with zebrafish is desired but not mandatory. Applicants from underrepresented groups in sciences are highly encouraged to apply. Interested candidates should email their resume/CV, the names and contact information of at least three references, and a cover letter explaining their interest to fpoulain@mailbox.sc.edu (please title the email subject as “postdoc position”).
