Position Description: The Martin laboratory (https://www.martinlabohsu.com) seeks a highly motivated postdoctoral research fellow with expertise in animal models of neurodegeneration or aging and a strong publication record. The primary goal for this position is to use Drosophila and rodent genetic models of Parkinson’s disease to understand molecular mechanisms of neurodegeneration, particularly related to disease-causing mutations in the LRRK2 gene. Candidates with a strong background in molecular biology, confocal microscopy and expertise working with Drosophila are especially encouraged to apply.
The Martin laboratory is housed in the Jungers Center for Neurosciences Research at OHSU; a leading and collaborative research environment focused on basic mechanisms of nervous system function and neurologic disease. The Jungers Center houses a state-of-the-art imaging facility with in-house imaging specialists, enabling sophisticated approaches to brain and cell imaging. The Center also has full access to the World-class core resources available at OHSU.
For more information, or to apply, please contact Ian Martin: firstname.lastname@example.org. Applicants should send a current CV, cover letter and the names and contact information for three references.
