Postdoctoral Fellow - Cholinergic systems regulation & function

Full Time - Experienced
Academic / Research
The Sarter Lab at the University of Michigan (https://sites.lsa.umich.edu/msarter/) is seeking a postdoctoral fellow for new research on the regulation and function of cholinergic signaling. Our current research focuses on interactions between cortical cholinergic function and striatal circuitry, on the impact of choline transporter capacity variations on cholinergic activity and associated cognitive/behavioral functions, and on interactions between dopaminergic and cholinergic systems in subjects vulnerable for addiction-like behaviors. The postdoctoral fellow may also wish to become involved in research in humans, in part by studying vulnerabilities in humans expressing a choline transporter subcapacity variant. This is a great opportunity for a postdoctoral researcher to become a leader in translational neuroscience research on cholinergic systems, movement disorders, or addiction. If you are interested in this position please contact Martin Sarter (firstname.lastname@example.org).
