A postdoctoral researcher position is available in the Department of Pharmacology at the University of Washington, Seattle, WA, starting November 2017. Our lab is interested in understanding the neurobiology of developmental disorders including autism and schizophrenia with a focus on elucidating the role of kinases in neuronal and synaptic development. Through a cutting-edge integration of advanced chemical-genetics, proteomics and induced pluripotent stem cell-based approaches, we are investigating how mutations associated with disease affect signaling pathways mediating synaptic and neuronal development to further the understanding of the molecular underpinnings of neurological disorders.
Candidates should have a doctoral degree in neuroscience, cell biology, biochemistry, physiology or related fields. Strong research experience supported by first-author publications is a requisite. Candidates with interest in neuronal development and experience in molecular biology, biochemistry, iPSC and genome-editing technology, electrophysiology, microscopy or animal models are encouraged to apply. Interested candidates should apply by sending a cover letter and curriculum vitae along with contact information for three professional references to firstname.lastname@example.org
The Department of Pharmacology at University of Washington provides state-of-the-art facilities and a highly intellectual and collaborative research atmosphere. UW is among the largest biomedical research organizations in the world. Successful candidates will join an exciting scientific community of researchers both within UW and the surrounding Seattle scientific community.
