Job Description

Requisition Number 06085
Department Name: Neuroscience - FL
Position Type: Full Time
Position Title Postdoctoral Associate - Martemyanov Lab
Position Summary:

Molecular and Cellular Neurobiology of GPCR Systems

An NIH funded postdoctoral position is available within the Jupiter, FL campus to study molecular, cellular and behavioral aspects of neuronal signaling. We are looking for an energetic colleague with keen interest in science and solid background in the areas of physiology, molecular and cell biology.

The laboratory is interested in delineating mechanisms by which GPCR pathways control reward behavior, vision and provide neural control of the cardiac function. It is expected that the project will contribute to our understanding of the neuropsychiatric diseases, drug addiction and vision loss while focusing on the discovery of the fundamental neurobiological principles. Multidisciplinary approach integrating behavioral characterization of genetic mouse models with live cell imaging, biochemical analysis of signaling reactions and discovery of novel interactions by mass-spectrometry assisted proteomics is envisioned.
