The Kauffman Lab at U.C. San Diego has openings for up to 2 post-doctoral researchers to study the role of the brain in regulating reproductive hormone secretion as well as the effects of hormones on brain circuits controlling puberty and fertility. Research is conducted in mouse models, addressing the interaction of hormones (sex steroids, stress hormones, etc.) and neuropeptides (kisspeptin, neurokinin B, GnRH, GABA, etc.) in coordinating the brain’s regulation of puberty and reproduction. Lab techniques include a combination of in vivo animal work and bench work (in situ hybridization, RT PCR, immunohistochemistry, hormone ELISAs, brain histology and neuroanatomy, microscopy, etc.).
Prospective post-doc positions are available to start beginning June 1 through October 1, 2018.
Please note requirements below. Interested applicants should email Dr. Alexander (Sasha) Kauffman (email@example.com) an updated C.V., cover letter, and list of 3 individuals who can provide references upon request.
Individuals with backgrounds in neuroscience, molecular biology, physiology, endocrinology, or reproduction are encouraged to apply. Must have a proven record of productive research as a graduate student or early-level postdoc.
**Please note, U.S. citizens or green card holders will receive top preference due to eligibility for departmental federal T32 training grants and NIH postdoctoral fellowships. However, exceptional international candidates with excellent and productive track record may also be considered, funds permitting.
