The Department of Biological Sciences at Kent State University is recruiting four new postdoctoral fellows to work in the area of neuroscience. These positions offer exceptional opportunities for collaborative and interdisciplinary research that are supported by exemplary facilities for animal research, imaging, genomics, and behavioral analysis. We seek highly-motivated entry-level postdoctoral fellows for the following laboratories:
Heather K. Caldwell - We seek individuals with a strong background in behavioral neuroscience, experience in stereotaxic surgery, and working knowledge of molecular biological techniques. The focus of the laboratory is on the contributions of oxytocin and vasopressin to social behavior and neuropsychiatric diseases. The postdoctoral researcher will work on a project involving viral manipulation of the vasopressin system. He or she will be involved in the generation, screening, and packaging of viral constructs, as well as their site-specific delivery. hcaldwel@kent.edu
John D. Johnson – We seek individuals with a background in stress physiology and experience in small animal surgery. The focus of the laboratory is on the effects and consequences of stressor exposure on innate immune responses. The postdoctoral researcher will work on a collaborative project examining how stress enhances innate immune responses and the consequences on behavioral and physiological responses (e.g. depression-like behaviors, exacerbating infarct size after ischemic damage). jjohns72@kent.edu
Jennifer A. McDonough and Ernest J. Freeman - We seek individuals with a strong background in molecular biology, cell signaling and cell physiology. Our research is focused on mechanisms of neurodegeneration in multiple sclerosis. The post-doctoral researcher will work collaboratively on projects related to gene-environment interactions in neurodegeneration. A background in neuroscience is preferred and previous experience with cell culture, histology, immunocytochemistry, and electron microscopy are desirable. jmcdonou@kent.edu , efreema2@kent.edu
Eric M. Mintz – We seek individuals with a strong background in behavioral neuroscience with knowledge of basic molecular biology techniques. The focus of the laboratory is on the role of the suprachiasmatic nucleus in regulating behavioral endpoints. The postdoctoral researcher will work on projects relating to the link between circadian output signaling, locomotor activity, feeding, and anxiety. emintz@kent.edu
