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.

Position Summary

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).


  • The candidate should hold a PhD, have an experimental background in a field related to psychology or neuroscience, and a desire to gain teaching experience in addition to research during the postdoc. In addition to that, candidates must be willing to mentor undergraduate students.
  • Experience with in vivo electrophysiology and/or using mouse models is a bonus. Similarly, knowledge of Matlab or Python would be a plus but is not necessary.
  • Furthermore, candidates from diverse backgrounds and/or underrepresented groups in science are especially encouraged to apply.
