A Postdoc (full time) is available in the Brain-Gut Interaction Laboratory at UCLA David Geffen Medical School, and West Los Angeles VA to participate in projects involving profiling of neuronal circuits in the gut, using viral tracing, immunohistochemistry, multiple labeling, tissue clearing and 3D neuronal tracing and image reconstruction. The project is awarded by the NIH common fund. The applicant will join an international team of scientists with multiple disciplines and state-of-art technologies. The position will offer excellent opportunity to advance career path and to obtain training in new methodological approaches.
The applicant should have a PhD with some experience and interest in neuroanatomical and immunohistochemical studies and in microscopy and imaging processing. Knowledge and experiences will be preferred in the enteric nervous, vagal, spinal autonomic and sensory systems, small animal surgeries, confocal and multiple photons microscopy, and image processing. Please include contact details for three referees with your CV.

About VA Medical Center at Los Angeles and UCLA
Dr. Taché is a professor at UCLA and an Associate Director of the CURE:DDRCC and Director of the Animal Models Core. She leads the Brain-Gut Interactions Laboratories that focus on the role of brain peptides in the regulation of autonomic outflow to the gut and the mechanisms through which stress signaling pathways influence digestive function as it relates to gastrointestinal function, visceral pain and feeding using electrophysiological, neuroanatomical, molecular and pharmacological approaches. She is a PI of a multiple disciplinary project funded by NIH special program, SPARC.
