Full-time Postdoctoral Fellow - Tollkuhn Lab

The Tollkuhn Lab has an open position for a postdoctoral researcher to develop projects on hormonal regulation of brain sexual differentiation
The lab studies how gonadal hormones such as estrogen and testosterone regulate brain development, behavior, and disease. These hormones modulate the wiring of social behavior circuits during developmental sensitive periods to produce sex-variable behaviors in adulthood. Our lab is seeking a colleague with a background in neural development to explore how sex differences in gene expression give rise to sex-typical patterns of neuronal connectivity.
