The Hussman Institute for Autism is a new independent nonprofit research organization dedicated to improving the lives of individuals with autism and their families. The Neuroscience research program of the institute is 8,000 square feet of research space located in the Biopark adjacent to the University of Maryland, School of Medicine (UMB) in Baltimore. Research efforts in neuroscience are based on translational collaborative projects where findings and hypotheses can be shared across many disciplines of cell and molecular neuroscience. The Hussman Institute for Autism is an Equal Opportunity employer.
We are currently recruitingpostdoctoral fellows to study the electrophysiology, neurocircuitry and/or developmental neurobiology of autism. Candidates should have a strong background in either electrophysiology and system neuroscience or, in embryonic brain development, cell migration and axonal defects. Projects focus on genes that are implicated in autism using mouse models. Useful techniques include electrophysiology, animal brain surgery, histological techniques, and for developmental studies, experience in primary cell culture is preferable to understand early cell migration and cortical lamination differences occurring in autism during brain development.
Please contact Dr. Shiyong Huang for electrophysiology postdoctoral position firstname.lastname@example.org or Dr. Celine Plachez for brain development email@example.com
Please send NIH Biosketch or equivalent CV, a letter of interest and a list of three references. Review of applicants will start immediately and continue until the positions are filled. Only shortlisted candidates will be notified.
Ph.D. in Neuroscience or a related field. Applicants with previous postdoctoral experience are preferred but not required.
