  • Post-doctoral research position — Haas Lab

A postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Julie Haas starting in the spring of 2015. We seek an individual to conduct research on electrical synapse dynamics and plasticity using in vitro thalamocortical networks.  Experience with in vitro electrophysiology and/or optogenetic methods is strongly recommended. Training opportunities may cover quantitative analyses, computational modeling and widefield imaging methods. The Lehigh community provides an ambitious, supportive and collaborative research environment, and offers excellent training and career development opportunities.  Interested candidates should send their CV, a brief statement of research interests and goals, and the names and contact information of 3 references to julie.haas@lehigh.edu

Additional Salary Information:  Appointment is a renewable one-year contract at the appropriate NIH salary scale. Two years of support are available if the candidate does not have or receive his/her own funding.

  • Post-doctoral research position — Lang Lab

A postdoctoral position is available in Greg Lang's lab in the Department of Biological Sciences at Lehigh University. The Lang Lab uses experimental evolution and genomics to study the molecular basis of evolution in yeast. For more information about our work see our recent Nature paper (Aug 29;500(7464):571-4)) or visit our lab website.

Applicants must have a PhD, or equivalent degree in molecular biology, genetics/genomics, systems biology, evolutionary biology, or related field. Candidates with degrees in physics, math, chemistry, computer science, and engineering will be considered provided they have some molecular biology laboratory experience.

Lehigh University is a highly ranked academic and research environment located in the Lehigh Valley region of Pennsylvania, an hour north of Philadelphia and an hour-and-a-half west of New York City. The Lehigh Valley encompasses three metropolitan areas (Allentown, Bethlehem, and Easton) each offering a variety of cultural and outdoor activities.

The position will run for at least two years, with opportunities to extend the position depending on funding availability. Salary will be based on the NIH scale. To apply, please email your CV, a description of your research interests, and contact information for three references to Greg Lang (glang@lehigh.edu). Applications will be considered as they are received.

The Layden lab is seeking to fill a postdoc position investigating neural development and regeneration in the sea anemone Nematostella vectensis. Our lab is interested in comparing the mechanisms that generate homologous neurons during developmental and regenerative neurogenesis. Ideal candidate will have a strong background in developmental biology and in modern molecular techniques. Candidates with a background in cnidarian biology and analyzing next generation sequencing preferred. Funding for up to 2 years. If interested please email letter of intent including your long-term research interests and have three letters of recommendation sent to layden@lehigh.edu

  • Post-doctoral research position — Miwa Lab

A scientific position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Julie Miwa. We seek a highly motivated researcher with a background in mouse genetics and neuroscience. Position responsibilities include behavioral experimentation, intravenous, tail-vein injections in mice, animal husbandry and genetic mouse colony maintenance. Experience with viral delivery of antisense/nucleic acids and stereotaxic survival surgery or genetic engineering is a plus.

The Miwa laboratory focuses on the genetic basis of learning through cholinergic modulation based on lynx modulators. This is a multi-disciplinary research environment that employs electrophysiological, behavioral, biochemical approaches towards the characterization of mouse genetic models. Candidates are expected to work productively in a team environment. Ideally the candidate would seek independent post-doctoral funding.

The Lehigh community provides an excellent training environment and career development opportunity. Interested candidates should send their CV, a statement of research interests and career goals, and the names and contact information of 3 references to jmm312@lehigh.edu, with “Applicant- Genetics position” in the subject line.

  • Ph.D.-level Scientific research position available — Miwa Lab

A Ph.D.-level research position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Julie Miwa. We seek an experienced scientist with expertise in mammalian tissue culture, stable cell line production and characterization by biochemical, pharmacological, electrophysiological techniques means. Experience in assay development or chemistry/biochemistry is a plus.

The Miwa laboratory focuses on the genetic basis of learning through cholinergic modulation. This is a multi-disciplinary research environment that uses in vitro and in vivo approaches to investigate complex problems. We’re seeking a highly motivated researcher with demonstrated ability to direct an independent research project. Experience/success in grant writing is a major plus. Salary is competitive, based on experience.

Interested candidates should send their CV, a statement of research interests and career goals, and the names and contact information of 3 references to jmm312@lehigh.edu, with “Applicant – Cell line development position” in the subject line.
