A couple of Research Scientist positions are available in the laboratory of Dr. Tomomi Ichinose in the Department of Ophthalmology, Visual and Anatomical Sciences (OVAS) at the Wayne State University School of Medicine in Detroit, Michigan.
We are seeking to hire highly motivated scientists who are interested in neuroscience and vision research. We examine retinal neural networks, synapses, and physiological outcomes using the mouse retina as a model system. Mainly, we focus on (1) motion detection neural network and (2) ON and OFF neural signaling and light adaptation. The laboratory employs state-of-the-art techniques, including patch-clamp, Ca imaging with two-photon microscopy, multiple electrode array, immunohistochemistry, and AAV gene transfection.
The successful candidate should have a B.S., Ph.D., or equivalent in neuroscience, vision research, cell biology, or related fields. Expertise in patch-clamp is preferred but not required. Interested candidates should apply at https://jobs.wayne.edu/applicants/jsp/shared/Welcome_css.jsp. Please select “Research Assistants/Associates” for position number 046369. Please attach a cover letter, curriculum vitae, and contact information for three references.
The Wayne State University School of Medicine’s Department of Ophthalmology, Visual and Anatomical Sciences ranks 11th in the nation in National Institutes of Health (NIH) research funding, including a National Eye Institute (NIH) P30 grant and a Research to Prevent Blindness grant. Our collaborative environment continuously supports motivated young scientists. Laboratory alumni have moved on their careers to become healthcare professionals, such as medical students, life science Ph.D., pharmaceutical field, and computer professionals.
