Postdoctoral Positions - Synaptic Remodelling, University of Texas Southwestern, USA

Postdoctoral positions are available to study signaling mechanisms in synaptic remodeling. The goal is to understand the molecular mechanisms and biochemical pathways that mediate learning and memory as they pertain to brain function during health and disease. This research relates to aging, drug addiction, schizophrenia, PTSD, and ADHD.

Other projects focus on the dysregulation of synaptic signaling as it pertains to neurodegenerative disorders including stroke and Alzheimers disease. Research will be conducted at a state-of-the arts premier facility that accommodates expertise in neuroscience, biochemistry, pharmacology, electrophysiology, behavior, histology, molecular biology and transgenic technology. Applicants must be near finishing or have just completed their doctoral thesis with publications in international peer reviewed journals.
