Postdoctoral Fellowship in Molecular/Translational Neuroscience
A postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Som Mukhopadhyay at The University of Texas at Austin to study gene-environment interactions in neurodegenerative diseases. The project specifically focuses on understanding how organisms regulate levels of essential metals in the brain, and how defects in these regulatory processes induce Parkinson’s disease.

The laboratory employs mouse/rat genetics, neurobehavioral, neurochemical, mechanistic cell biology, biochemical, structure-function, and drug discovery approaches.
UT Austin provides an outstanding environment for neuroscience/cell biology research. Trainees have access to numerous career development opportunities through an active postdoctoral association. Rapid transition of postdoctoral fellows to independence is a major training goal of the Mukhopadhyay laboratory.
Applications are encouraged from recent graduates with a Ph.D. in a related field. The successful candidate will be highly inquisitive, motivated for success, and skilled at the bench. Competitive salary and excellent health benefits will be provided according to institutional and NIH guidelines.
Address inquires and send applications to Dr. Mukhopadhyay (firstname.lastname@example.org). Applications should include: 1. Cover letter describing interest in our research and your graduate achievements; 2. Curriculum Vitae. 3. Names of three referees (do not send letters unless requested).
- A Ph.D. in a related field (neuroscience/pharmacology/cell biology/biochemistry) with strong publication track record within the last 2 years.
- Highly inquisitive nature, motivated for success, and skilled at the bench.
