Postdoctoral Position – Section on Circuits, Synapses and Molecular Signaling, National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, NIH
The Intramural Research Program (IRP) at the National Institutes of Health is the largest biomedical research institute on earth. A combination of world-class investigators, unparalleled facilities, and a unique funding environment provides a rich training environment for postdoctoral fellows.
Postdoctoral positions are available in the laboratories of Dr. Lorna Role, Dr. Simon Halegoua, National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS), and Dr. David Talmage, National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) in Bethesda MD. The Role and Talmage laboratories use a wide array of approaches to understand the contribution of cholinergic signaling to memory formation and recall, to understand how axonal signaling contributes to the development and maintenance of cholinergic circuits in the mammalian brain, and to identify novel approaches for reversing or mitigating the adverse effects of altered cholinergic signaling in pathological conditions of memory disorders (AD, PTSD). The Halegoua and Talmage labs decipher the molecular signaling events that mediate acute and chronic hyperalgesic responses of mouse nociceptors to inflammation and injury using an array of sophisticated cell biological, molecular, genetic, and imaging approaches in vitro and in vivo.
Salary, benefits, and travel opportunities (if applicable) will be commensurate with experience and qualifications.
Candidates should have a Ph.D., M.D. or equivalent degree, less than 4 years of post-doctoral experience, and expertise in electrophysiology, imaging, behavioral analyses, and /or cell biology and molecular biology. Candidates should have excellent writing and communication skills, and an outstanding publication record.
To apply: Interested candidates should send a cover letter, curriculum vitae, bibliography, and contact information of three references to: Lorna Role: firstname.lastname@example.org, David Talmage : David.email@example.com or Simon Halegoua: firstname.lastname@example.org .
