Postdoctoral Position in Neurobiology available to study synaptic
plasticity and its role in learning/memory and neuropsychiatric disorders.
Potential research projects include electrophysiological recording in
brain slices from knockout or normal mice to study the regulation of
synaptic plasticity such as long-term potentiation and long-term
depression or behavioral analysis of dopamine receptor knockouts.
Expertise in electrophysiology (particularly whole-cell or intracellular
recording) or behavioral analysis is required. Laboratory is well-equipped
and we have expertise in both electrophysiology and gene targeting
technology (Science 257:201-206, 1992; Nature 371:704-707, 1994). Please
send CV and names of three references to Y. Wang, Department of
Pharmacology, University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, M102 John
Morgan Bldg, 3620 Hamilton Walk, Philadelphia, PA 19104-6084. Or reply via
