The laboratory employs mouse/rat genetics, neurobehavioral, neurochemical, mechanistic cell biology, biochemical, structure-function, and drug discovery approaches.  We are also using sophisticated analytical techniques for metal detection (e.g. XRF, LA-ICP-MS).

Applications are encouraged from recent graduates with a Ph.D. in a related field. The successful candidate will be highly inquisitive, motivated for success, and skilled at the bench. Competitive salary and excellent health benefits will be provided according to institutional and NIH guidelines. Expected start date is in Fall 2023.

UT Austin provides an outstanding environment for neuroscience/cell biology research. Trainees have access to numerous career development opportunities through an active postdoctoral association. Rapid transition of postdoctoral fellows to independence is a major training goal of the Mukhopadhyay laboratory.
