Post-doc in Patch-Clamp Electrophysiology
University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center - Oklahoma City, OK
A post-doctoral position is immediately available in the group of Dr. Raphael Pinaud in the Department of Physiology/ROCA at the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center, OK. The overarching goal of the projects associated with this position is to determine how estrogen modulates the auditory processing of complex auditory signals, and determine the intracellular mechanisms through which this hormone regulates auditory learning and plasticity-associated gene expression (see Tremere et al. (2009) J. Neurosci. 29: 5949-5963; Tremere et al. (2010) Nature Prot. 5: 191-200; Tremere & Pinaud, (2011) J. Neurosci. - in press). The position is available for a highly motivated individual who has an excellent record for productivity in research and is enthusiastic about the neural basis of auditory processing and plasticity, and/or neuroendocrinology. More specifically, the position is open for an individual with strong experience whole-cell patch clamp electrophysiology in neurons. The candidate should have a Ph.D. in the biological sciences.
This full-time position is available for 1-year initially, with the potential for renewals for up to 4 additional years, and is funded by grants from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the National Science Foundation (NSF). Salary will be commensurate with experience and competitive benefits are provided. Applications will be reviewed immediately and continue until the positions are filled.
Interested candidates should e-mail a short letter of interest, a CV with a summary of research experiences, and the names and contact information of 3 references to raphael-pinaud@ouhsc.edu .
