We have an opening for a Postdoctoral Fellow studying interactions between stress and fear using rodent models such as stress-enhanced fear learning in the Fanselow Laboratory at UCLA (https://fanselowlab.psych.ucla.edu). Expertise with in vitro slice physiology is an absolute requirement.  While a significant percentage of effort will be with electrophysiology there will also be opportunities to use and/or learn many additional techniques including advanced behavioral analysis, microscopy, imaging, and molecular biological methods.  The applicant will also be able to take advantage of the large, diverse and highly collaborative nature of UCLA neuroscience. The position is available immediately and interviews will continue until an outstanding candidate is identified.

A successful candidate will have the following qualifications:

  • Ph.D. in Neuroscience or related field
  • Ability to work in a collaborative and collegial environment
  • Expertise in slice electrophysiology is necessary
  • Experience with other relevant techniques including behavior and molecular biology is desirable but not essential.

To apply please send a CV, statement of research interests and qualifications, and a list of at least 3 references to Fanselow@ucla.edu with “ephys postdoc” in the subject line.

We especially encourage women and those from backgrounds poorly represented in STEM fields to apply to our lab- all are welcome. The University of California is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
