The Griffith lab, housed in the Department of Physiology and Membrane Biology in the School of Medicine at the University of California, Davis, seeks to fill one available postdoctoral position. We are looking to recruit a highly motivated and collaborative scientist to join our growing team. The ideal candidate will have prior experience in patch-clamp and extracellular slice electrophysiology recordings from spinal cord or brain, and will use these skills to investigate how aberrant sensory neuron function alters central circuits. There will be opportunities to learn the variety of techniques used in the lab, that range from ion channel biophysics to rodent behavior. Successful applicants will be expected to actively participate in lab meetings, journal clubs, and seminar series, assist in mentoring junior members of the lab, and present research findings at national and international scientific meetings. UC Davis is collegiate and collaborative, and our department has an active postdoc community, including a dedicated postdoctoral seminar series. Our lab is located just 20 minutes outside of Sacramento, with Napa Valley, Lake Tahoe, and the San Francisco Bay area being short trips away.
A Ph.D. in neuroscience or a related biomedical field
A track record of productivity
Expertise in ex vivo slice electrophysiology techniques (brain or spinal cord)
Motivated to independently pursue and drive their project
Effective oral and written communication skills
Experience with any of the following: basic biochemical/molecular techniques, transgenic mouse models, immunohistochemistry, RNAscope, confocal imaging, cell culture of primary neurons, rodent behavior.
Excellent organization/time management skills
To be involved in all aspects of the study including study design, performing experiments, data collection and analysis, publication of results
To keep organized lab notes, data files, etc.
To act in collegial manner and contributes to a positive lab environment.
Interested candidates should send their CV/Biosketch, cover letter expressing interest in the position, and at least three professional references (list name, address, email address, and telephone numbers), to Theanne Griffith (email@example.com). Applicants from under-represented backgrounds are strongly encouraged to apply.
