We are seeking an exceptional, motivated, and enthusiastic post-doctoral scholar in the Circuit Repair Laboratory at the Burke Neurological Institute (BNI), led by Edmund Hollis II, PhD.
Our laboratory studies the plasticity of motor and sensory systems, principally following spinal cord injury. We are currently looking for a postdoctoral fellow with an interest in translational neuroscience. These studies will involve collaboration between clinical and rodent researchers with the goal of advancing current state-of-the-art surgical intervention for spinal cord injury. The tools employed will include surgical and physiological approaches and assessments of circuit function by optogenetic and chemogenetic testing in combination with anatomical and functional tools. More details on our lab can be found at: http://burke.weill.cornell.edu/hollis-lab
Preferred qualifications include a Ph.D. in Neuroscience, Genetics and Genomics, or Biomedical Sciences, experience with one or more of the following: small animal surgery, behavioral studies, electrophysiology, or clinical research. The position is expected to commence in the summer of 2019. Applications will be accepted on an ongoing basis. Compensation includes NIH scale salary, housing stipend, and full health benefits. Please contact Edmund Hollis II, Ph.D. directly at email@example.com.
