An NIH grant funded Postdoctoral Associate position is open for applying optical approaches to study vesicle traffic and synaptic transmission. Research is conducted in living Drosophila using new sensors, cutting edge microscopy and genetically identified regulators to understand how synaptic neuropeptide release is supported by vesicle biogenesis, circulation, capture and kiss-and-run exocytosis. Experience with quantitative fluorescence imaging, neurotransmission and/or Drosophila would be advantageous. A Ph.D. in Neuroscience or a relevant field within the past 0-2 years is required as well as enthusiasm for high quality science and good communication skills. Please send your CV including reference contacts and a brief description of your career goals and research experience and interests to email@example.com.
