Postdoctoral Fellowship position available at Halladay Lab at Santa Clara University in the United States of America. A Postdoctoral Fellow position in behavioral neuroscience is available immediately (start date is flexible; two year minimum) in the laboratory of Lindsay Halladay (Assistant Professor of Psychology and Neuroscience) at Santa Clara University.
The main research focus includes examining the impact early environmental insults have on the extended amygdala and related socio-emotional behaviors. Specifically, studies dissect cell type- and projection-specific mechanisms underlying behavioral deficits induced by postnatal stress, using mouse models and translational tools. The Halladay lab uses a variety of methods, including in vivo electrophysiology, chemogenetics, viral tracing, and immunohistochemistry.
This Postdoctoral Fellowship is part of Santa Clara University’s Inclusive Excellence program. Fellows are partially funded by the College of Arts and Sciences and therefore have small teaching responsibilities (typically one 10-week course in neuroscience/ psychology during the first year, and two during the second postdoc year).
Santa Clara University is a private Jesuit university in Santa Clara, California, in Silicon Valley. The university offers bachelor’s degrees, master’s degrees, and doctoral degrees through its six colleges, the College of Arts and Sciences, School of Education and Counseling Psychology, Leavey School of Business, School of Engineering, Jesuit School of Theology, and School of Law.
