POSTDOCTORAL RESEARCH ASSOCIATE
Molecular and Circuit Mechanisms Mediating Long-Term Memory Storage
A postdoctoral position is immediately available for a motivated individual to join a dynamic multidisciplinary research team to study non-coding RNAs, synaptic plasticity, and memory storage. The successful candidate will be studying molecular, cellular, and circuit mechanisms underlying long-term memory storage in the mouse hippocampus and prefrontal cortex. The position is in the Puthanveettil Laboratory, Department of Neuroscience (www.scripps.edu/puthanveettil), at the Scripps Research Institute campus, Jupiter, Florida.
Examples of ongoing research can be found in the following recent publications: Badal et al., Cell Reports (2019); Swarnkar et al., Scientific Reports (2018), Raveendra et al., PNAS (2018) and Rizzo et al., Biological Psychiatry CNNI (2017).
Candidates should have a Ph.D. and be able to work interactively in a highly collaborative research environment. Candidates are expected to have strong cell biology and behavior neuroscience background. Experience in stereotaxic injections, cannula placements, viral-mediated gene manipulation, and imaging are highly preferred. Competitive candidates will have one or more first-author manuscripts accepted or published in internationally recognized peer-reviewed journals. This position is open for two years with the potential for further extension. The National Institutes of Health fund this project.
We are highly committed to facilitating the achievement of the candidate’s professional development and career goals (https://education.scripps.edu/postdoctoral/prospective-postdocs/). There will be ample opportunities available for developing new skills, collaborating with other departments at Scripps Research in Florida as well as in California, along with our neighboring institutions, the Max Planck Florida Institute for Neuroscience and Florida Atlantic University Brain Institute.
The Scripps Florida Department of Neuroscience has state of the art facilities for imaging, genomics, proteomics, biochemistry and rodent behavior assays. The infrastructure at Scripps Florida includes unique chemical, genomic, proteomic, informatics, and high-throughput screening tools for the discovery of novel biomolecules.
Interested applicants are requested to submit a Curriculum Vitae, a brief description of prior research experience, scientific interests, and contact information for three referees as a single PDF file to email@example.com.
