Full/Part Time: Full Time
Location/Affiliates: The Mount Sinai Hospital
Department: 867 - Neurosciences
Requisition Number: PD14-1628078
A position is available for a Postdoctoral Fellow in the laboratory of Dr. Paula Croxson in the Department of Neuroscience and the Friedman Brain Institute at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York. The laboratory works on the cognitive neuroscience of memory using a combination of animal models and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The main focus of the lab is on the neurochemical basis of memory and the brain-wide networks that support it. In particular, we investigate the effect of lesions on brain-wide networks responsible for memory, particularly working and episodic memory. We also work on the role of neurotransmitters, particularly acetylcholine, on memory and plasticity. We combine lesions with MRI measures including diffusion imaging, functional and structural MRI to investigate these networks at the cognitive and systems levels.
Interested candidates should have Ph.D. in Neuroscience, Psychology or a related discipline. Must also have excellent verbal and written English.
Preference will be given to candidates with experience with behavioral work in laboratory animals (particularly non-human primates), or experience with the design and analysis of MRI studies. Programming experience (particularly Matlab) is desirable.
