Signaling to regulate dynamic cytoskeletal organization is critical for the neural development of excitatory and inhibitory synapses. Abnormalities in these pathways alter synaptic plasticity and are linked to Intellectual Disability, Autism, and Schizophrenia. We are discovering the topology of these pathways and the cellular mechanisms underlying these disorders. Postdoctoral applicants with experience in behavior, optogenetics, neural circuit tracing, or electrophysiology with an excellent publication track record are encouraged to apply.
