A postdoctoral position is open immediately (Summer/Fall 2013) on an NIH-funded research project concerning the study of novel antidepressants in rodent models. Studies will focus on characterizing the behavioral and biochemical effects predictive of rapid acting antidepressant drug efficacy. Scientific approaches may include the use of transgenic mice, animal models of mood and anxiety disorders, automated behavioral analysis software, biochemical analysis, and stereotaxic surgery.

Our laboratory is broadly interested in preclinical studies of genes involved in human mood disorders and drugs used to treat these conditions (see www.gouldlab.org). Thus, additional techniques may include immunohistochemistry, PCR, western blot, electrophysiology, and pharmacogenetics. Past experience in behavioral neuroscience is preferred and strong writing and communication skills and proficiency in English is required. Experience with some of the other techniques discussed above will be helpful, but not required. The successful candidate will play a lead role in designing and executing projects, writing publications and grants, and presenting data at professional conferences. Salary will be based on experience. Interested applicants with a PhD in neuroscience or related disciplines should send a CV, statement of research interests and the names of 2-3 references to: Dr. Todd Gould, Departments of Psychiatry, Pharmacology, and Anatomy & Neurobiology, MSTF 934D, 685 West Baltimore Street, Baltimore, MD 21201 or via e-mail at This email address is being protected from spambots.

The focus of this unique institute is the study of the early relationship formed between parents and infants and its impact on child's social and emotional development. The PAIR institute also explores and evaluates effectiveness of different therapeutic approaches designed for parents and infants. The institute is committed to lead cutting-edge research using innovative methodologies (including behavioural, physiological, genetic and imaging profiles) to further illuminate the significance of early relational experiences to later development.

We are now in the process of recruiting candidates for post-doctoral and experienced developmental researchers positions both in Israel and abroad, and would be very grateful if you would be able to circulate the attached call for applications (Hebrew and English) to your mailing list. We are determined to recruit leading and ambitious researchers that will contribute to the Israeli scholarly excellence.
