Postdoctoral Research Associate positions are available in the labs of Drs. Paul Brehm and Gail Mandel in the Vollum Institute, Oregon Health & Science University. Our labs are open to motivated postdoctoral fellows through a collaborative, multi-disciplinary research program focused broadly on the molecular and cellular bases of neurological disorders in both mouse and zebrafish animal models. Ongoing projects in the Brehm lab utilize in vivo and slice optical and paired recording techniques to test models for synaptic depression. Candidates should have experience and interest in cellular neurophysiology. In the Mandel lab, individuals with training in genetics chemistry and molecular biology are sought to explore roles of chromatic modifiers in the aging mouse and human brain, and in the context of the neurological disease, Rett Syndrome. (Click here for more info: Mandel Lab Projects.) Portland and the Vollum Institute are wonderful places to live and work. Candidates should be highly motivated and committed to a career in science. All interested applicants should send a cover letter, resume and three letters of recommendation to firstname.lastname@example.org. Additionally, if you are attending the Neuroscience 2017 meeting in Washington D.C, you may contact Dr. Mandel at email@example.com to schedule an interview.
PhD in Molecular Biology, Chemistry or Physiology.
Additional Salary Information: Commensurate with NIH guidelines.
About Vollum Institute / Oregon Health & Science University
The Vollum Institute is a privately endowed research institute at Oregon Health & Science University dedicated to basic research that will lead to new treatments for neurological and psychiatric diseases. Vollum scientists have broad-ranging interests that coalesce around molecular neurobiology and cellular physiology. Their work has transformed the field of neuroscience and, in particular, have p...rovided important advances in the study of synaptic transmission, neuronal development, neurotransmitter transporters, ion channels and the neurobiology of disease.
