Available Positions


We are seeking applicants for an NIH-funded post-doctoral position, available immediately.


Our main goal in the Hoffman lab is to gain new insights into the roles of genes associated with autism spectrum disorders at the molecular, cellular, and circuit levels to develop improved pharmacological treatments. To accomplish this, we use zebrafish CRISPR-generated mutants of autism risk genes to directly visualize the functions of these genes in the developing nervous system and to perform high-throughput behavior-based screens.


We are seeking post-doctoral researchers interested in (1) characterizing neural circuit deficits resulting from loss of autism risk gene function using in vivo functional imaging; and (2) analyzing structural, functional, and molecular phenotypes in zebrafish autism risk gene mutants.


To apply:

Please send an email with your CV, contact information for 3 references, and cover letter to ellen.hoffman@yale.edu using the subject line: Postdoctoral applicant: Your name. Applicants are encouraged to outline research projects of interest.

Graduate and undergraduate students interested in doing a rotation in the lab should email ellen.hoffman@yale.edu.
