Postdoctoral positions are available in the laboratory of Dr. Hai Huang in the Department of Cell and Molecular Biology, and Brain Institute at Tulane University.
Our lab aims to understand the synaptic mechanisms that support reliable and precise auditory information processing and how noise exposure and hearing loss affect these function, using a combination of techniques including electrophysiology, two-photon imaging, computational modeling, molecular biology, and animal models. We are particularly interested in studying ion channels and transporters at the calyx of Held and conventional synapses in controlling presynaptic properties, vesicular glutamate transport, vesicle recycling, neurotransmitter release, and synaptic plasticity. Please refer recent publications at https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/myncbi/browse/collection/41571818/?sort=date&direction=descending for more details.
The successful candidates should have strong background in neuroscience and experience with patch-clamp electrophysiology. Experience in computational modeling and two-photon imaging is highly desired but not required. The position is funded by NIH grant and salary will follow guidelines set by NIH and Tulane.
Interested applicants please provide: 1) curriculum vitae, 2) the names of three references, 3) a brief statement of research experience and interests to Hai Huang at email@example.com and also apply via https://apply.interfolio.com/39004.
Tulane University is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action/ADA Employer and encourages minority and female applicants to apply.
