Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory faculty recruitment in developmental neurobiology  

Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL) is seeking support to recruit a developmental neurobiologist with knowledge and expertise in neural circuit development and plasticity to enhance current efforts to understand how neuropsychiatric disorders affect brain function. This scientist will be part of an innovative and multidisciplinary team that combines genetics, mouse models, and neuroscience to study the underlying biology contributing to disorders such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and autism. The team is building on efforts by the genetics group at CSHL, who have contributed to the field's understanding of genetic variations underlying these disorders. Project Status
