Postdoctoral Training Position in Neuroscience

Powell Laboratory
UT Southwestern Medical Center
Posted Date: November 2010

A postdoctoral training position is immediately available to study genetic animal models of autism and autism spectrum disorders. Potential projects include behavioral, cellular, and molecular characterization of genetic animal models relevant to autism and autism spectrum disorder.

Candidates should have a Ph.D., M.D./Ph.D., M.D. or equivalent in neuroscience, biochemistry, molecular biology, physiology, or psychology. Experience with behavioral analysis, knockout technology, or general neuroscience background is desired but not required.
