The Creed Lab is recruiting highly-motivated candidates for positions at multiple levels.
Graduate Students Positions for rotating graduate students will be available from January 2019. All potential projects are highly collaborative and will focus on patch-clamp or in vivo electrophysiology to study the synaptic basis of limbic circuit function as it relates to mood disorders and addiction. The candidate(s) will learn and apply multiple techniques, for example: stereotaxic surgery, viral-genetic tracing techniques and confocal microscopy, fiber photometry and behavioral neuroscience. Graduate students can join the Creed Lab through the Division of Biology and Biomedical Sciences (dbbs.wustl.edu ) umbrella program at Washington University School of Medicine.
Laboratory Technician The Creed lab is seeking up to two entry level research technicians, starting summer 2019. This is a joint position between the Creed lab and lab of Alexxai Kravitz (WashU Dept. of Psychiatry). Candidates should have a BA or BSc by summer 2019. Experience with behavioral neuroscience experiments or benchwork is preferred but not required. Alternatively, students with engineering or computer science backgrounds seeking to apply their skills to problems in neuroscience are especially encouraged to apply. The successful candidate(s) will contribute to multiple projects, learning techniques in behavioral neuroscience, electrophysiology, stereotaxic surgery and data analysis, as desired. Interested candidates should send a CV and statement of interest to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Postdoctoral Fellows We are always interested in hearing from motivated candidates. We provide a multidisciplinary training environment and have several on-going projects focused on the synaptic and circuit underpinnings of co-morbid addiction, mood and chronic pain disorders, and designing novel neuromodulation therapies for these conditions. Interested candidates should send a CV and statement of career and research goals to email@example.com.
