The Nelson lab is seeking a talented research technician to join our group. We study the cellular and circuit mechanisms of motor control, and how they go awry in the context of movement disorders such as Parkinson’s Disease, dystonia, and dyskinesias. To investigate how different brain regions, neuronal cell types, and patterns of activity contribute to motor control, we use a variety of Systems Neuroscience techniques, including electrophysiology, calcium imaging, optogenetics, histology, and mouse models of disease. The specialist will help manage our mouse colony, but also contribute to individual and/or collaborative projects.
Applicants must have worked at least 1 year in a Neuroscience laboratory, anticipate receiving a bachelor’s degree in Neuroscience or a related field and have experience in rodent research, PCR/genotyping, and immunohistochemistry. Additional desired qualifications include experience with rodent behavior, mouse colony management, stereotaxic surgery, or physiological techniques.
