Postdoctoral Research Fellow

A Postdoctoral Fellow position in behavioral neuroscience is available beginning immediately (start date is flexible; two year minimum) in the laboratory of Lindsay Halladay (Assistant Professor of Psychology and Neuroscience) at Santa Clara University.

The main research focus includes examining the impact early environmental insults have on the extended amygdala and related socio-emotional behaviors. Specifically, studies dissect cell type- and projection-specific mechanisms underlying behavioral deficits induced by postnatal stress, using mouse models and translational tools. The Halladay lab uses a variety of methods, including in vivo electrophysiology, chemogenetics, viral tracing, and immunohistochemistry.

This Postdoctoral Fellowship is part of Santa Clara University’s Inclusive Excellence program. Fellows are partially funded by the College of Arts and Sciences and therefore have small teaching opportunities (typically one 10-week course in neuroscience/ psychology during the first year, and two during the second postdoc year).

Position: Postdoctoral Research Fellow
Organization: Santa Clara University
Location: Santa Clara,  CA 
United States
Salary: $60,000-$68,000
Posting Start Date: 8/3/2021
Date Posted: 8/3/2021

The candidate should hold a PhD, have an experimental background in a field related to psychology or neuroscience, and a desire to gain teaching experience in addition to research during the postdoc. Willingness to mentor undergraduate students is essential. Experience with rodent behavioral models and in vivo electrophysiology is a bonus. Knowledge of Matlab or Python would be a plus but is not required.
