Our lab conducts preclinical research in mouse models to understand the mechanisms underlying susceptibility to psychiatric illness with an emphasis on sex as a biological variable. Women are twice as likely as men to experience psychiatric conditions involving dysregulation of emotional learning and memory, such as posttraumatic stress disorder and anxiety disorders. This successful candidate will lead a project that tests the novel hypothesis that this divergent vulnerability is conferred by female-specific engagement of a brain circuit that strengthens emotional memory.The trainee will have opportunities to collaborate with other labs in our growing interdepartmental and intercollegiate neuroscience community, as well as with other groups in the Research Triangle (Duke University, UNC Chapel Hill, NIEHS, and local industry). In addition to training in experimental methodology, postdocs will receive comprehensive professional development in scientific publication and communication, grant writing, and laboratory management.
