Postdoctoral Fellow Position(s) at Duke University in the Departments of Cell Biology/Neurobiology

22.5.2018 | Ajankohtaista
Postdoctoral Fellow Position(s) at Duke University in the Departments of Cell Biology/Neurobiology
 
Marc G. Caron’s Lab
 
Our laboratory studies the G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) that regulate brain dopamine signaling important to common neurological disorders such as depression, schizophrenia, Parkinson’s disease, and drug abuse. The research utilizes cutting-edge biochemical, pharmacological, molecular-genetic, and behavioral approaches.
 
The applicant will participate in investigations whose scope includes the following two related areas:
 
(1) Determining how GPCRs like dopamine receptors maintain neurotransmitter homeostasis in the brain to control specific behaviors. This will be examined in animal models utilizing genetically modified mice.
 
(2) Investigating the concept of GPCR biased signaling or functional selectivity as it relates to the therapeutics of neurological disease. This translational line of investigation will provide proof-of-concepts studies for developing pathway selective agents with better pharmacologic profiles and fewer side effects. A successful applicant will be exposed to these and other ongoing related research topics in the process of maintaining his/her own independent research project.  Our laboratory will also provide a wealth of biochemical, pharmacological, and/or physiological expertise to facilitate both your research and career development.  A recent Ph.D. degree in biological sciences (or equivalent) is required.  Candidates should have experience and or interest in neurobiology, pharmacology, receptor biology, signal transduction, or animal models of behavior.
 
Salary will be based on NIH guidelines.  
 
Please send curriculum vitae and names of three references to:

Postdoctoral Position Available to Investigate Alternatives to Prescription Opioids and novel cell biological underpinnings of opioid tolerance, (SUNY Downstate Medical Center, NYC, USA)

9.5.2018 | Ajankohtaista
Postdoctoral Position Available to Investigate Alternatives to Prescription Opioids and novel cell biological underpinnings of opioid tolerance 
 
A postdoctoral position is available in the lab of Dr. Gintzler at  SUNY Downstate Medical Center, located in Brooklyn, NYC. Research in the Gintzler lab is directed at identifying mechanisms that modulate endogenous opioid antinociception, key molecular components of which could serve as targets for stimulating endogenous opioid analgesia, eliminating or reducing the need for exogenous opioids. A parallel line of research investigates cell biological underpinnings of analgesic tolerance and opioid-induced hyperalgesia following chronic exposure to opioids. The successful candidate would be exposed to an interdisciplinary research approach that utilizes cell lines maintained in culture, ex vivo as well as in vivo CNS preparations, immunohistochemistry and behavioral analysis.
