Postdoc, Yale University, Early life stress and neuroimmunology

The Kaffman lab is investigating the role that microglia play in mediating the neurodevelopmental and behavioral changes seen in mice exposed to early life stress. The lab is a member of the Ribicoff Center in the Department of Psychiatry at Yale, which is a dynamic and large group of neuroscientists studying the molecular biology of different complex behaviors in rodents. We have several exciting projects that use cutting edge technologies in neuroimmunology, genomics, and imaging in mice. For information on recent publications from the Kaffman lab see, Johnson et al 2018 (PMID: 29463821), Johnson and Kaffman 2018 (PMID:28625767) and Delpech et al. 2016 (PMID:27301858).

We are looking for highly motivated and talented candidates to fill two postdoc positions in the lab. The first position is for neuroimmunologist with expertise in purifying and characterizing microglia (experience with flow cytometry and genomics is highly desired). The second position is for a neuroscientist with a strong background in studying consequences of stress in mice (experience with assessing spine density, cell counting, stereotactic injections, IHC and confocal microscopy are highly desired). Candidates should have completed a Ph.D. in neuroimmunology and/or neuroscience, and email the following materials to Arie Kaffman at arie.kaffman@yale.edu:

  • A cover letter describing their interests and technical skills
  • Updated CV
  • e-mail addresses and phone numbers of three references
