Job Title: Research Graduate PhD Candidate, University at Buffalo (UB), Buffalo, NY

My role & responsibilities (Job description) briefly:

As a PhD student in neuroscience, my research is focused on understanding the role of auditory experience in the development and plasticity of the brain. In other words, I am studying how external environment (loud or quiet) effects synaptic connection between nerve cells in the brain. I am mainly employing electrophysiology, which allows me to record electrical properties of neurons.

My advice to someone interested in this field:
I would suggest taking neuroscience related courses at college level. Reading research articles and contacting researcher who are working in your field of interest. Research requires a lot of perseverance and hard work. So, be prepared. Good luck
