The Kaffman lab is seeking a talented postdoc for a recently funded collaborative work with the Dietrich lab at Yale. The work examines the role that Agrp and POMC neurons located in the hypothalamus play in mediating abnormal attachment behavior in mice exposed to early life stress. This is an exciting and highly innovative project that uses cutting edge technologies such as calcium imaging in pups, chemogenetic viral manipulations, and sophisticated home-cage monitoring system to assess behavior. For additional relevant readings see PMIDs: 31104844, 33259286

The following expertise/experience are required for this position:

  • Stereotactic viral injections in pups and adult mice
  • Use of chemogenetic tools to manipulate behavior in mice Calcium imaging in behaving mice
  • Behavioral testing in adult mice and preferably also pups
  • Tissue processing of mouse brain for immunohistochemistry and confocal microscopy
  • Excellent verbal and writing skills in English are essential

Candidates should have completed a Ph.D. in neuroscience, and email the following materials to Arie Kaffman at

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