Postdoctoral position in behavioral neuroendocrinology and circadian rhythms
The Butler Lab in the Oregon Institute of Occupational Health Sciences and Department of Behavioral Neuroscience is seeking a postdoctoral fellow to study sex differences in the circadian clock with a focus on the mechanistic role of the androgen receptor. This project is supported by NIH through 2023. The work will involve electrophysiology of identified neurons in the suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN), imaging of clock genes in organotypic slice culture, and pharmacogenetic manipulations of behavior.
Applicants should have a PhD in biology, neuroscience, or associated field. Experience with electrophysiology, tissue culture, or animal behavior will be an advantage but not a requirement. The successful applicant will work closely with Matthew Butler (PI) and Chuck Allen (Co-I) and will join a team at OHSU with strengths in circadian and sleep biology in animal models and in humans.
Research fellows are strongly supported in their professional development by a mentoring team that provides guidance on career trajectory and grant and scientific writing. Other duties include animal and bench experiments, data analysis, drafting of papers and presentations.
Salary and rank are commensurate with education, skills, and experience.
