Our laboratory is broadly interested in preclinical studies
of genes involved in human mood disorders and drugs
used to treat these conditions (see www.gouldlab.org).
Thus, additional techniques may include
immunohistochemistry, PCR, western blot,
electrophysiology, and pharmacogenetics. Experience in
techniques to assess learning and performance in a variety
of operant tasks, especially those ones related to
measuring impulsivity and/or risk taking in rodents is
essential, as are strong writing and communication skills
and proficiency in English. Experience with some of the
other techniques discussed above will be helpful, but not
required. The successful candidate will play a lead role in
designing and executing projects, writing publications and
grants, and presenting data at professional conferences.
Salary will be based on experience.
