The Garrett lab in the Department of Pharmacology and Department of Ophthalmology, Visual and Anatomical Sciences (OVAS) at Wayne State University is seeking a postdoctoral fellow to study neural circuit formation in the retina. We are interested in the role of cell adhesion and neuronal self-avoidance in the developing mouse retina, focusing on two families of cell adhesion molecules: the clustered protocadherins and DSCAMs. The successful applicant will join a supportive research environment with the opportunity to build on his or her existing skills. We use a variety of techniques including mouse genetics and genomics, electroporation and viral gene delivery, primary neuronal culture, and microscopy. Visit to learn more about our lab. Salary and benefits will follow the NIH scale (benefits described at While the position is funded, the PI will mentor the postdoctoral fellow in writing and applying for additional support.

The Departments of Pharmacology and OVAS include faculty members using a variety of model systems in the disciplines of neuroscience, retinal biology, cancer biology, and environmental toxicology. The Garrett lab is a cooperative environment with ongoing collaborations with members of both departments. Wayne State University is a premier public research university located in midtown Detroit, offering a host of career development opportunities for postdoctoral researchers (
