Position Title: Postdoctoral Associate- Srinivasan Lab
Our lab is focused on the study of neural circuits and neuroendocrine signaling, with the goal of deciphering mechanisms underlying the bi-directional communication between the brain and the gut, an area with great potential for innovation and discovery. We have utilized the C. elegans model system for its powerful molecular genetics and pathway discovery, and unraveled a novel brain-to-gut pathway with profound and unexpected orthology in mammals, which we now wish to study in mouse models we have recently developed. To this end, we have also begun leveraging organoid technology.
We are seeking a motivated postdoctoral fellow to spearhead projects that will investigate the molecular and cellular basis for gut signaling, and its impact on whole-body metabolism and communication with intrinsic and extrinsic neural innervation. Our research program is uniquely juxtaposed at the intersection of molecular neuroscience and physiology, and offers an exciting new perspective on the integrative biology of gut-brain communication.
The Scripps Research Institute is one of the world’s leading biomedical research institutes, and offers outstanding scientific opportunities for collaborations with laboratories engaged in cutting-edge science and novel technologies.
This position works in a laboratory or vivarium environment. Further details of the physical requirements of established essential functions for this position will be addressed/discussed during the interview process.
Ph.D. in genetics, neuroscience, biochemistry, physiology or related disciplines. The candidate would ideally have a strong background in molecular genetics and studies of in vivo metabolism, and a conceptual understanding of modern molecular neuroscience and behavior. First-author publications (or manuscripts in press) are a must, along with the interest and capacity to obtain postdoctoral fellowships. The candidate must be driven, possess a sense of scientific curiosity, and enjoy working in a team-oriented and stimulating environment. We welcome candidates from diverse scientific and personal backgrounds with the belief that diversity generates creativity. Please apply with your CV, a brief statement of research interests and the names of 2-3 supervisors and mentors who can be contacted for references.
