By combining mouse behavioral assays, in vivo monitoring of neuronal activities in freely-behaving mice, optogenetic/chemogenetic modulation of neuronal activities, neural circuit tracing, and epigenetic/gene expression analysis, we plan to unravel the underlying mechanisms from the molecular and cellular to the circuitry and behavioral levels.

The Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Neurobiology offers a strong supportive research environment in both laboratory and clinical settings. Research resources are enriched through the Neuroscience community at UAB.

The post-doctoral fellow will be encouraged to develop her/his own research within the overall goal of the laboratory: understanding of neurobiology underlying stress-related disorders. The fellow will also have an opportunity to take part in the highly interactive scientific community at the UAB.

Qualifications:
1) Candidates must have a doctoral level degree (M.D. and/or Ph.D.) in neurobiology, neuroscience, neuropsychophrmacology, biomedical engineering, system biology, molecular biology, or a related field.
2) Preferences will be given to creative and motivated candidates with experience in rodent behavioral assessments, optogenetics, electrophysiological and/or in vivo imaging methods, but highly motivated candidates with alternate experience are also encouraged to apply.
3) The ideal postdoctoral candidate will be dedicated to basic research with strong analytical and communication skills. The fellow is expected to collaborate with colleagues inside and outside the laboratory.

This person will perform behavioral assays, neurochemical assays including in vivo microdialysis, circuit mapping, and in vivo calcium imaging with a miniature epifluorescence microscope in conjunction with optogenetic/chemogenetic manipulation in the neurobiology and neuroendocrinology of parenting, emotional, motivational, and social behaviors. One of our projects is currently supported by a 5-year R01 research grant from the National Institute of Mental Health to understand the role of adolescent stress in postpartum mood and cognition.

Start date: January 2022 and later.

Salary: Salary is commensurate with the UAB guideline for Postdoctoral researchers. Coming with fellowship funding is always a plus.
