The Kim Laboratory at Yale School of Medicine is inviting applications for a postdoctoral position. The main research objective for this position is to define retinal circuits that regulate defensive behavioral responses to threatening stimuli. To identify such circuits, we will utilize mouse genetics, AAV-based neurocircuitry analysis, confocal microscopy and behavioral tests.
The ultimate goal is to understand structural and functional properties of the fear-related visual circuits and elucidate the mechanisms that might be responsible for disruption of such circuitry in fear- and anxiety-related disorders.
The ideal candidate for this position would have a strong background in behavioral neuroscience or related field. Familiarity with mouse models, in vivo surgery, and/or computer programming would be a plus.
Interested candidates should e-mail their application to firstname.lastname@example.org. The application should include: (1) CV with a full publication list, (2) a brief description of research interests, (3) contact information for 2-3 references.
