Position open for a lab scientist member to conduct preclinical cellular and molecular neuroscience and cancer research. This research aims to understand the causes and developing new treatments for mental illness, addiction, neuronal injury, and neuroendocrine cancer. The person awarded this position will conduct experiments using both in vitro and in vivo model systems. Studies will also encompass analysis of patient derived samples. The successful candidate will work with a strong team of basic researchers and physicians study mechanisms that control cellular function and disease progression in cells as well as in vivo models. Effort will be directed at assessments of the efficacy of new treatments and the application of multidisciplinary techniques including pharmacology, biochemistry, cell biology, animal behavior, histology, physiology, and in vivo imaging. Candidate should have 3-5 years of research experience in this or a related field and experience with biomedical research using rodents. The successful candidate will be expected to contribute intellectually to this research, derive and present data, and contribute to scientific publications of high impact. The candidate will also integrate with all members of an outstanding neuroscience and cancer research lab and contribute to its successful operation. The successful candidate will be given the opportunity to work on an independent project that may be developed into a first author publication. This is an exceptional opportunity to for involvement and career development in translational research relevant to biotechnology, biomedicine, and pharmaceutical industry fields.
