Job Description: The Harris Lab in the Center for Learning and Memory in the Department of Neuroscience at The University of Texas at Austin seeks a Postdoctoral Fellow with a background in behavior and genetics and an interest in learning about structure-function relationships at the nanoscale – serial electron microscopy level. The purpose of the project is to test the importance of the spine apparatus in synapse growth and clustering. Formation of a spine apparatus requires the actin binding protein synaptopodin. LTP and learning are impaired in the mouse synaptopodin knockout. Our published results show, however, that the developmental onset and profile of enduring LTP in mice is more variable than in rats, making mice a less dependable model for the project. Hence, we have generated a constitutive synaptopodin knockout rat. We would like to recruit a postdoctoral fellow who would work to develop the conditional rat knockout to allow controlled elimination of the spine apparatus early during development or at adult ages to test whether the spine apparatus is necessary for LTP-related synapse growth and clustering. We have access through an ongoing collaboration with the UT-Austin core to generate the conditional knockout rat.
Job Details: General Notes
Funding for this project is guaranteed for three years. Applying for postdoctoral fellowships and transitional grants such as the NIH K99-R00 will be facilitated.

Postdoctoral Fellowship in Digital Phenotyping of Psychological States at the Massachusetts General Hospital
The Depression Clinical Research Program (DCRP) at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) and Harvard Medical School is seeking a creative and computationally skilled postdoctoral fellow to develop next generation digital phenotyping methods that dynamically map psychological states such as depression, stress and perceived happiness, and cognitive function. The fellow will work at the intersection of basic and translational digital phenotyping methods that seek to identify states of health and illness in older adults and how mind/body and mindfulness therapies may modify behavioral phenotypes.
The successful candidate will have outstanding programming skills and a doctoral degree in psychology, neuroscience, electrical engineering, biomedical engineering, computer science, applied math, or related field. Prior research experience in digital phenotyping is not required. Candidates with a strong background in machine learning, Python, and R statistical computing are encouraged to apply. Creativity, initiative, proven ability to publish, teamwork, self-direction, and excellent oral and written communication skills are key.
The fellow will have the opportunity to benefit from ongoing NIH funded clinical trials of behavioral interventions that, in addition to validated clinical measurements, receive multiple digital data streams. These include passive and active smartphone sensing through the high throughput Beiwe platform developed by Dr. Jukka-Pekka Onnela’s laboratory at the Harvard School of Public Health, which is a collaborating group on this research. Other data streams will include custom designed App software delivering psychotherapy and monitoring usage, and wearable devices. The fellow will receive mentorship from the PI and other DCRP investigators toward the goal of publication of first-authored manuscripts early in the fellowship. It is expected that this will enable the fellow to apply for independent NIH funding during the fellowship, building on the Principal Investigator’s and DCRP’s successful track record.
The position is full-time for 2 years (with funding extensible for an additional 2 years based on productivity and interest) with benefits. Salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience, and additional funding for conferences and training seminars. The Massachusetts General Hospital is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer and underrepresented minorities in science are encouraged to apply. Applicants should submit a curriculum vitae, the contact information of two references, and a cover letter describing their research background, interests, and professional goals by email to Dr. Felipe Jain (felipe.jain [at] mgh.harvard.edu).
