Applications are invited for a postdoctoral fellowship in Dept of Neurology to work on funded research projects. The laboratory is focused on regulation and function of extrasynaptic GABA receptors (both GABAA and GABAB receptors) in TBI and epilepsy models. Ongoing projects are interested in neuroinflammation in TBI. The ideal candidate has experience with patch clamp recording in acute brain slices, enthusiasm for experimentation, and a collegial attitude. Experience with fluorescent imaging and rodent EEG are desirable.
The laboratory uses a variety of electrophysiological techniques, biochemical approaches, immunofluorescent microscopy, and in vivo EEG recordings. The laboratory is well-equipped, including instrumentation for optogenetic stimulation of neurons, and has access to confocal microscopes and other core equipment. UW and VA Puget Sound have strong and collegial research environments.
Salary is $55,000.00 per year with fringe benefits (depending on experience).
Interested applicants should contact Dr. Christopher Ransom with a copy of their CV.
