Postdoctoral Fellow

Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai is seeking enthusiastic, detail-oriented applicants for positions of Postdoctoral Fellow to join a multi-disciplinary team with the Kenny Lab. The School is one of the nation's leading medical schools, ranked in the top 20 schools for NIH funding. The Nash Family Department of Neuroscience at the Icahn School of Medicine is ranked number 1 in NIH funding and is undergoing rapid expansion. The Department offers an outstanding intellectual and multidisciplinary research environment with a commitment to translational research.  State-of-the-art infrastructure and support is available in the Department.

1. A postdoctoral position in in vivo calcium imaging is available in the laboratory of Dr. Paul Kenny at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York. The successful candidate will join a multi-disciplinary team focused on the neurobiological mechanisms of drug addiction. The project will investigate the circuit-based mechanisms of drug addiction.  Candidates should have a Ph.D. and a background in in vivo or ex vivo calcium imaging or electrophysiology.

2. A postdoctoral position in noncoding RNA is available in the laboratory of Dr. Paul Kenny at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York. The successful candidate will join a multi-disciplinary team focused on the neurobiological mechanisms of drug addiction. The project will investigate the role for noncoding RNAs in regulating the actions of drugs of abuse on addiction-relevant circuits in the brain.   Candidates should have a Ph.D. or M.D and a strong background in molecular/cellular neuroscience. Those with experience in animal behavioral testing are particularly encouraged to apply.

3. A postdoctoral position in neuroimmunology is available in the laboratory of Dr. Paul Kenny at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York. The successful candidate will join a multi-disciplinary team focused on the neurobiological mechanisms of drug addiction. The project will investigate how immune signaling influences the actions of drugs of abuse on addiction-relevant circuits in the brain.   Candidates should have a Ph.D. or M.D and a background in immunology/cell biology. Those with experience in single cell immunology approaches (e.g., CYTOF; RNA-Seq) are encouraged to apply.

Interested candidates should submit their Curriculum Vitae and contact information for at least three professional references. Please indicate which position you are applying for.  Materials should be sent as a single PDF file, to:
