Postdoctoral researcher positions funded by NIH and foundation grants are available to study synaptic plasticity mechanisms underlying intellectual disability, anxiety, depression and many other brain functions/dysfunctions. We have created many transgenic mouse models, including lines mimicking human de novo mutation, for these studies. We also use lentivirus injection, in combination with (flox/+) mice or shRNA knockdown to study the effect of many human de novo mutations on synaptic functions.
