Research Fellow at University of Michigan

University of Michigan is delighted to offer a postdoctoral position in life sciences. There is no application deadline for this position.

The laboratory of Dr. Peng Li at the Life Sciences Institute of the University of Michigan is seeking postdoctoral fellows to study neural control of breathing and how it fails in pathological conditions in mouse models (

The Li lab is interested in the molecular and neural basis underlying breathing control and how it goes awry in pathological conditions with breathing abnormalities, such as sleep apnea and sudden infant death syndrome. We employ a combination of state-of-the-art approaches, including viral circuit tracing, optogenetics, chemogenetics, pharmacology, single cell RNAseq, and functional imaging, to dissect the heterogeneity and functions of neuronal populations in the breathing control circuit, and to identify the mechanism by which the emotional and physiological inputs are integrated to generate breathing rhythm and patterns (e.g. Li et al., Nature 2016).

We are looking for highly motivated and ambitious young scientists. Applicants with expertise in areas including but not limited to, mouse genetics and behaviors, systems neuroscience, imaging, FACS, and respiratory physiology, are welcome to apply. A Ph.D is required.

Interested applicants please contact with cover letter describing research experiences and interests, curriculum vitae, and contact information for three letters of reference.

The University of Michigan conducts background checks on all job candidates upon acceptance of a contingent offer and may use a third party administrator to conduct background checks. Background checks will be performed in compliance with the Fair Credit Reporting Act.

Job openings are posted for a minimum of seven calendar days. This job may be removed from posting boards and filled anytime after the minimum posting period has ended.

The University of Michigan is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer.
