Neuropeptide research group seeks highly motivated personnel to engage in a multifaceted approach. The main aim of our laboratory is to elucidate the CNS role of a novel neuropeptide system. In partnership with medicinal chemists, novel tool compounds and potential drug-leads will be developed to both determine the therapeutic potential and to further understand the endogenous function of this novel system.
Ideal candidates will be highly motivated and able to:
1) contribute to existing programs as well as to develop their own research program. 2) prepare manuscripts for peer-reviewed journals and assist in grant writing. 3) communicate study results in a public setting, such as conferences. 4) provide work coordination to technicians and guidance to graduate students as needed. 5) work collaboratively in a team-oriented environment, conceptualizing and prioritizing objectives and exercising independent judgment.
