A post-doctoral or Biological scientist position is available immediately in the Department of Pharmacology and Therapeutics, at the University of Florida College Of Medicine, in the lab of Dr. Nikhil Urs (https://sites.google.com/site/urslabuf/). This extramurally funded and renewable position will be focused on interdisciplinary research on dopamine neurotransmission in mouse models of psychiatric and neurological disorders. Our laboratory uses behavioral, neurochemistry, circuit mapping, and molecular approaches toward the fundamental understanding of how dopamine neurotransmission regulates motivated behavior in normal and pathological conditions. Along with behavioral studies our laboratory will be using state-of-the art techniques such as fiber photometry to understand dopamine dynamics during behavior. Candidates are expected to have English language and communication skills, along with working in a team-based environment. Studies will be conducted in mice and in in vitro cell culture systems.
Qualifications: Candidates must have a Ph.D. or M.D./Ph.D. in neurosciences, neuropharmacology and/or cellular/molecular biology, or related field with neuroscience research experience.
Experience in animal behavior, fiber photometry or neurochemistry is desired but not required.
Proficiency in in basic cell culture techniques, immunohistochemistry, imaging techniques, including fluorescence and confocal microscopy is desirable.
Experience with in vivo techniques involving rodent models (drug delivery, behavior, tissue/fluid collection, animal surgery etc) is an advantage.
The candidate will also be expected to write manuscripts, participate in all levels of communication of research findings and participate in grant proposal writing to support the lab with the goal to originate their own research grant proposal.
Applications, including curriculum vitae and bibliography, summary of past accomplishments, and at least three letters of recommendation from immediate supervisors, should be submitted together.
