Effects of Secreted Proteins on the Activity of the AMPA Receptor Complex in the Retina and Brain

A Postdoctoral Fellow position is available immediately in the Section of Retinal Ganglion Cell Biology, National Eye Institute (NEI), National Institutes of Health (NIH), in Bethesda, Maryland to study effects of several secreted proteins (olfactomedins, brorins, neuritins) on the activity of the AMPA receptor complex in the retina and brain. This work will provide insight into the role of these proteins and AMPA receptors in optic neuropathies with focus on glaucoma and several neurological diseases. Our projects utilize multidisciplinary approaches, including molecular biology, electrophysiology, biochemistry, cell biology, and proteomics. For further information on our research, please visit the web site https://irp.nih.gov/pi/stanislav-tomarev.

Applicants must have a Ph.D. and/or M.D. degree with less than five years of postdoctoral experience. Applicants should have the ability to carry out independent research in relevant areas, a strong interest in interdisciplinary approaches and collaborative research. Hands-on training in molecular biology, electrophysiology, biochemistry or cell biology with experience in animal handling is preferred. NIH offers excellent salary and health care packages to its trainees and has consistently been ranked among the best places to work for postdoctoral fellows.

Applicants should send a brief statement of research interests, their curriculum vitae and the contact information for three or more references to: Dr. Stanislav Tomarev (tomarevs@nei.nih.gov).
