POSTDOCTORAL POSITION FOCUSING ON RODENT MODELS OF EMOTIONAL RESILIENCE AND DEPRESSIONI am seeking a post-doc to work on a recently awarded grant "Phenotyping Resilience in Rodents: Targeting key neurobiological responses in Depression.” Ideally, I am interested in beginning the project in mid-June (very soon!) The grant will investigate the effects of both predisposed coping strategies and contingency training on emotional resilience in male and female rats--asssessed by behavioral persistence, neuroplasticity, relevant neuroendocrinological measures and activation of brain areas involved with adaptive decision-making in the face of uncertainty (e.g., prediction errors). I am interested in an individual who has experience with rodent models and traditional histology (e.g., immunocytochemistry) as well as an infectious intellectual curiosity for behavioral neuroscience. This two-year position is especially appropriate for individuals interested in incorporating undergraduate students into his/her future research program (there will be an opportunity to teach at least one course per year). Randolph-Macon College is a small Liberal Arts College in Ashland VA, 90 miles south of Washington DC and 15 miles north of Richmond VA. Visit kellylambertlab.com to learn more about our diverse research programs. If interested, please send a letter of application and a CV as soon as possible to Kelly Lambert: firstname.lastname@example.org with R-MC POSTDOC in the subject line.
