We are studying the formation of synapses between neurons in the central nervous system. In particular, we are interested in how neurotransmitter receptors are localized to postsynaptic specializations. We are also interested in the modification of synapses during development and in response to growth.
Postdoc candidates would be joining an exciting community of C. elegans and Drosophila labs at Rutgers in New Jersey. Experience in either molecular biology, cell biology, or genetics would be an advantage.
