Postdoctoral positions

The goal of the lab is to understand striatal circuits and how they become disordered in disease.  Interest in feeding, obesity, or psychiatric disease is a plus. Candidates for postdoctoral positions should have a PhD in neuroscience, biology, biomedical engineering or a related discipline.


All projects use a variety of experimental techniques and are highly collaborative, and so candidates must be able to work effectively in teams within the lab and with other members of the WashU neuroscience community. The opening is ideal for candidates with experience in in vivo or in vitro physiology, looking to expand their skill set. The Kravitz Lab is housed in the Washington University Pain Center in the department of Anesthesiology, and provides a supportive and intellectually stimulating training environment.  Washington University in St. Louis consistently ranks in the top 10 Universities for Neuroscience in the country, and offers outstanding opportunities and a dynamic community for post-doctoral fellows.

To be considered, applicants should submit the following to Dr. Kravitz (alexxai@wustl.edu):
1. CV
2. Statement of research interests and career goals
3. Contact information for three references

425 South Euclid Avenue, Saint Louis, Missouri 63110, United States
