A post-doctoral position is open at Columbia University to investigate the neurodevelopment of stress-resiliency circuits in a mouse model. Projects focus primarily on how individual variability of brain circuits develops in a normal inbred rodent population (i.e. no early life stress is used). Based on identified neurocircuit differences in adult mice, the current emphasis is on the limbic system, including the amygdala and the prelimbic to amygdala pathway. However, we are also using data-driven whole-brain approaches to uncover other relevant circuits. Techniques include but are not limited to: mouse behavioral analyses, immunohistochemistry, array tomography, viral-mediated neuroanatomy, inducible viral or transgenic systems for activity-dependent labeling, ex vivo light-sheet and confocal microscopy, chemogenetics, optogentics, slice physiology, and in vivo imaging of single cell activity using miniscopes.
