The successful candidate will handle and inject transgenic mice, remove and dissect the brain regions, genotype, isolate RNA, submit RNA for RNAseq experiments, perform qPCR, prepare samples for neurochemistry. Perform mouse behavioral assessments under various conditions, analyze/integrate the data and write first drafts of the manuscripts.
