Overview/Job Description. The Department of Cellular and Integrative Physiology in the Long School of Medicine at the University of Texas Health San Antonio is seeking THREE highly motivated postdoctoral fellows to engage in ongoing studies to investigate autonomic circuits as it relates to two programs:
1. Sudden death associated with epilepsy
2. Impact of High Fat Diet
These positions are in the laboratory of Dr. Carie Boychuk. We have a highly interactive and dynamic research group that evaluates autonomic circuits in an integrative fashion by testing outcomes at the level of individual cell(s), circuit analysis, and whole-animal neurophysiology. We use a variety of techniques including electrophysiology, fluorescent/laser/light microscopy, radio telemetry, molecular biology, and opto/chemogenetics. All training can and will be provided.
Qualifications. Applicants should have a PhD and/or MD in neuroscience, physiology or related fields. Applicants who anticipate to defend their thesis in the near future are also encouraged to apply. We are seeking individuals with a demonstrated record of careful experimental methods, publications, excellent written and communication skills and an ability to design and perform research in an independent manner. Several NIH training programs are also available through the institution to qualified candidates, and strong incentive programs will be considered for successful applications. Underrepresented minorities are encouraged to apply.
Salary is commensurate with experience and accomplishments starting at NIH pay scale, but with incentives available. Additional information regarding our laboratory and scientific interests are at https://physiology.uthscsa.edu/team-member/carie-r-boychuk-ph-d/ and our Department within UT Health San Antonio at physiology.uthscsa.edu.
