Vacancies Vacancies: Post-Doctoral Position in Retinal Neurobiology, Vanderbilt University
Posted by Euclockmanagement on Monday, August 10 @ 12:00:40 CEST (489 reads)

NIH-funded post-doctoral position available immediately to study the cellular and
molecular mechanisms of neural network adaptation in the retina. The project
examines the mechanisms by which retinal circuits are reconfigured according to
the prevailing illumination conditions through the action of modulatory retinal
neurotransmitters such as dopamine and through synaptic feedback. The focus is
on novel retinal circuits and molecules that mediate retinal dopamine neuron
heterogeneity, regulation of retinal dopamine by light, and the contribution of
connexin channels to feedback at the first visual synapse. Novel transgenic
mouse and zebrafish models developed in our laboratory enable in situ
electrophysiological recording from dopaminergic amacrine neurons (DA
neurons), and manipulation of channel gene expression in adult zebrafish retina.
The position requires a PhD or MD with previous training in neuroscience.
Previous training in retinal electrophysiology or imaging is a plus, but not required.

Vanderbilt presents an exceptional environment for training in visual neuroscience
in the form of the Vanderbilt Vision Research Center (http://vision-
research.vanderbilt.edu/index.php) which administers NEI core and training
grants in vision research. The VVRC provides a focus of activity and interaction
that facilitates collaborations among investigators. The broader Vanderbilt
neuroscience community is extensive with more than 300 investigators in more
than 50 departments, centers and institutes offering an outstanding environment
for in-depth training and research in neuroscience.

To apply for this position please send a letter of interest, curriculum vitae and
names of three references to Douglas G. McMahon, PhD, Professor of Biological
Sciences and Pharmacology, Vanderbilt University, Department of Biological
Sciences, VU Station B, Box 35-1634, Nashville, TN 37235-1634
