UCSF Postdoctoral Position: Molecular Neuroscience
The Ron laboratory at UCSF is inviting applications for postdoctoral position to investigate signaling pathways and plasticity mechanisms that underlie addiction.
Research in the Ron lab uses state-of-the-art techniques including, molecular/genetic technique for gene manipulations in subpopulations of neurons in vivo, viral-mediated gene delivery, RNA-seq and analysis in combination with behavioral approaches in rodent to study signaling cascades within circuitries that underie alcohol abuse disorders (Liu et al. Molecular Psychiatry 2016, Ron and Barak Nature Reviews Neuroscience 2016, Warnault et al., Biological Psychiatry 2015, Darcq et al., Molecular Psychiatry 2014, Barak et al. Nature neuroscience 2013). Highly motivated Molecular Neuroscientist candidates that will be graduating within the next year are encouraged to apply. Candidates must have a proven track record state of the art molecular biology techniques. Preference will be given to candidates with a solid background in signal transduction. The position offers an opportunity to be part of a collaborative team at the vibrant research community at the UCSF Mission Bay campus.
