A Postdoctoral Researcher position is available in the laboratory of Tomomi Ichinose at Wayne State University School of Medicine, Michigan, USA (https://ichinose.med.wayne.edu/).
Our laboratory focuses on dissecting mechanisms of visual signal processing in the retinal neural circuit. We use patch clamp recordings as the main approach to study receptors and voltage-gated channels that shape neural signaling elicited by light stimulation. We currently have projects focusing on the following areas: (i) motion detection; (ii) dopamine modulation; (iii) retinal neural network in the human retina. The ideal candidate will have a solid background in electrophysiology, imaging, molecular/cellular biology, or visual sciences and a strong interest in neurobiology. Candidates must hold a PhD or equivalent and have prior publications.
Cell biology and animal handling experiences required. Excellent verbal and written communication skills. Ability to work both in a team environment and independently. Experiences in the field of neuroscience or vision research are preferred.
