PI Roger A. Johns MD, PhD
Location The laboratory is located in the medical campus of Johns Hopkins
Position Type Full Time
Job Type Postdoctoral Fellow
POSTDOCTORAL POSITION available to study the role of postsynaptic scaffolding proteins (MAGUKs) in developmental neurotoxicity and long-term cognitive dysfunction. Focus is on the role of the PSD-95 family of MAGUK proteins and their downstream pathways in regulating synaptic development and function, mediating anesthetic sensitivity and neurotoxicity, and chronic pain. Critical skills include a strong technical expertise in biochemistry, imaging, rodent behavior, cellular and molecular biology. Helpful to have knowledge of MAGUK scaffolding protein function and experience in neurophysiology, fret imaging, protein-protein interaction, and dendritic spine analysis. Highly motivated PhDs with a strong publication record are encouraged to apply.
Send application letter, CV and contact information for three references to Dr. Roger Johns (email@example.com) and cc to Mr. Robert Burke ( firstname.lastname@example.org).

About Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine
Dr. Johns is a Professor of Anesthesiology at Johns Hopkins University. His neuroscience interests include the role of molecular scaffolding proteins in the post-synaptic density in mediating neuroplasticity and synaptogenesis in the context of development of chronic pain and in the mechanism and toxicity of volatile anesthetics. Scientific approaches include molecular and cell biology, immunohistochemistry, neurophysiology, optogenetics, Cre-lox mediated regional gene expression and knockdown and behavioral studies.
