WELCOME TO DALVA LAB
Who We Are
The Dalva Laboratory uses a combined approach of imaging, technology development, and biochemistry to probe the development and function of synaptic connections in cortex.
SYNAPTIC FORMATION AND DEVELOPMENT
TECHNOLOGY AND TOOLS
We have open postdoctoral fellowships for talented scientists interested in questions relating to basic mechanisms of NMDAR-dependent pain plasticity, and synaptic development. Opportunities to use state of the art STED imaging systems, work with exciting colleagues and be part of a dynamic team of scientists. High motivation and the ability to work independently as well as part of the team are a must.
We are seeking recent graduates with a Ph.D. in neuroscience, biophysics, physiology, or other relevant fields. Our team is multidisciplinary, using molecular and cellular biology, biochemistry, super-resolution microscopy, biophysics and mouse genetics. The candidate will be mentored by and work closely with Dr. Dalva. Dr. Dalva is committed to supporting fellows on their trajectory to an independent research career, including attending meetings, and ensuring that they submit competitive applications for fellowships and external grant funding.
To apply, please include a CV and a cover letter describing your previous work and career goals, putative starting date and the contact information for three references to firstname.lastname@example.org. Tulane University is an is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
