Postdoctoral Training Opportunity – Neural Circuitry Behavioral Research in the Li Laboratory

The Li Laboratory in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine is looking for creative and motivated postdoctoral fellows. We seek to understand how neuropeptides modulate circuit activity shaping behavior, and how these modulatory signals become maladaptive following stress exposure or the use of substances of abuse.

The candidate will lead research projects focused on how neuropeptidergic signals interact with neural circuits and regulate emotion and motivated behavior. In addition to designing and performing circuit dissection and behavior experiments, the candidate will be expected to explore and analyze large-scale neural data using machine learning methods and will have the opportunity to collaborate with computational and theoretical researchers at Northwestern University.

Please send your CV, a cover letter describing your current work and future plan, and contact information for three references to Hao Li, PhD.

Salary is commensurate with the NIH and Northwestern University guidelines for postdoctoral researchers. A relocation reimbursement or a signing bonus will be offered to competitive candidates.
