Neuroscience Researcher @ Thomas Lab, University of Pennsylvania

January 26, 2021

The Thomas lab has several research positions open to senior PhD students, postdocs and other researchers holding PhDs in neuroscience or related fields. These positions are for taking the lead on projects in the lab that examine neuromodulatory signaling in cognition, with an emphasis on learning and memory in the hippocampus. Results from these studies will enhance our understanding of how memory is affected by acute stress, by neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s, and by neuropsychiatric disorders that include post-traumatic stress and depression, as well as inform potential therapeutic avenues in these areas. Toward these goals, the lab utilizes mouse genetics, neuropharmacology, chemo- and optogenetics, viral transduction, electrophysiology, imaging and biochemical approaches.
