Postdoctoral Research Fellow position in Neuroscience and Neuro-urology

A postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Anne Verstegen (Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and Harvard Medical school) to study the Neural Control of Bladder Function.

The Verstegen Lab focuses on understanding neural control mechanisms for the regulation of physiological behaviors. Examples of research projects are: i) identifying functional neuron subtypes in the micturition reflex pathway, ii) mapping neural circuits involved in maintaining urinary continence and allowing voiding when it is socially appropriate and iii) studying processes by which an organism senses, interprets, integrates, and regulates signals originating from within itself (e.g. bladder fullness). 

The position is for a highly motivated individual with considerable experience in biology, neuroscience or related field.

1. Applicants should hold (or will be shortly awarded) a Ph.D. degree in the life/ biological sciences or neuroscience.

2. Experience with animal models is required.

The key priority of the lab is high-quality, fundamental science in a supportive and inclusive environment. In addition, the candidate will benefit from interactions and collaborations with other research groups in the Center for Life Science & Harvard Medical School and be on the frontline of newly emerging cutting-edge technologies.
