Position Detail

Applications are invited for the Postdoctoral Training Program in Functional Neurogenomics.

Vanderbilt Brain Institute

This training program is associated with the Vanderbilt Brain Institute and is supported by a T32 training grant awarded by the NIMH. Our goal is to train the next generation of neuroscientists to investigate pathophysiological mechanisms that underlie mental illness and translate this information into novel treatment strategies. The multidisciplinary program provides trainees with opportunities afforded by genetic model systems, the translation of human genetic findings into construct-valid animal models, the manipulation of molecules, cells and circuits with advanced technical approaches in vivo, and in capturing the physiological and behavioral consequences of such manipulations. Outstanding postdoctoral scholars will work in the laboratory of one of approximately 30 program-affiliated faculty members with positions in various departments at Vanderbilt University or Vanderbilt University Medical Center. The trainees' stipend and benefits are provided by the training program, as well as supplementary funds for travel to meetings and career development.
