Postdoctoral Fellow: The Likhtik Lab is seeking a postdoctoral fellow to join one of two funded projects focused on uncovering novel circuit function in emotion-based learning. We are a growing, dynamic, and supportive team at Hunter College (City University of New York) studying how the basal forebrain interacts with cortical and subcortical regions during learning, how the prefrontal cortex integrates information and communicates with other structures, and how stress affects these processes. We are also interested in integrating how neural and glial interactions define cross-regional communication patterns during learning and memory. We use animal models to probe changes that occur as a function of stress and anxiety, including altered communication patterns, changes in cellular activity, and molecular expression.
