The Kelly Lab is recruiting multiple postdoctoral fellows to study how cyclic nucleotide signaling regulates the neurobiology of learning & memory and social behaviors and how that signaling becomes impaired in aging, injury, Alzheimer's disease, or neuropsychiatric disease.  Multiple projects are available, including those centered on circuit-level analyses (e.g., optogenetics, chemogenetics, fiber photometry), proteomics (identifying protein binding partners and signal transduction cascades), and drug discovery (both small molecule and biologics).

What we will offer you:

  • Strong mentorship in experimental design, grant/publication writing and career development
  • Organized and goal-oriented work environment
  • Friendly and supportive team of researchers
  • Opportunities to present at national/international conferences
  • A highly collaborative department and School full of state-of-the-art facilities
  • Resources to develop an independent research program

You are a fit for the Kelly Lab if you have:

  • A strong background in neuroscience, biochemistry, and/or proteomics
  • An ability to independently digest relevant literature and formulate ideas
  • Strong writing and communication skills
  • Excellent time management skills
  • Experience handling mice and/or rats
  • An appreciation for the color teal 😉 (official lab color)
  • The ability to embrace a diverse and inclusive “girl power” culture

You should additionally have strong experience with at least some of the following skillsets:

  • Rodent behavior
  • Optogenetics or chemogenetics
  • Stereotactic surgery
  • Fiber photometry
  • Proteomics (e.g., identifying protein binding partners)
  • Cell culture
  • Basic molecular biology and biochemical techniques

Interested parties should email the following to Michy.Kelly@som.umaryland.edu:  CV and key pubs along with a cover letter that explains how your experience and personality makes you a fit for these positions (that is, tell me why I should interview you instead of someone else 😊).
