  美国内华达州大学医学院博士后职位

  The University of Nevada, Reno School of Medicine invites applications for a Postdoctoral Scholar in the Department of Physiology and Cell Biology.

  We are seeking a highly motivated and creative postdoctoral researcher with significant experience in cellular and molecular neuroscience techniques and/or electrophysiology in the laboratory of Dr. Robert Renden, in the Department of Physiology and Cell Biology. The postdoctoral fellow will have the opportunity to investigate mechanisms underlying age-related changes in synaptic short-term plasticity in mice, using whole cell patch-clamp electrophysiology, immunohistochemistry, and fluorescence imaging, with the cochlear nucleus and MNTB (calyx of Held) as synaptic models. This NIH-funded position will be granted initially for one year, with the possibility of extension contingent on satisfactory performance.

  The major responsibilities of this position include:

  ◦Cooperate in the design of an experimental program to evaluate age-related changes in synaptic function at auditory brainstem synapses in mouse: the calyx of Held and cochlear synapses.

  ◦Independently contribute to timely experimental execution, data collection, and rigorous data analysis of the research program.

  ◦Report experimental findings in written publications, incorporating own findings with the existing published literature.

  ◦Collaborate to develop mechanistic and molecular models describing cellular/molecular mechanisms that are degraded during normal aging and neurodegenerative diseases.

  Required Qualifications

  ◦Recent PhD degree in cellular/molecular biology, synaptic neuroscience, or relevant field.

  ◦Experience in patch-clamp recording, brain slice electrophysiology, and/or fluorescence imaging (confocal immunofluorescence, live imaging) techniques.

  ◦Exemplary written and verbal communication skills in English.

  ◦Strong organizational skills, goal-oriented motivation towards back science research.

  ◦An ability to work independently in a collaborative environment.

  Preferred Qualifications

  ◦Candidate with existing first author publications in peer-reviewed journals in the field of cellular or molecular neuroscience is highly desirable.

  ◦Candidate with research experience in synaptic physiology or auditory function is preferred.

  Compensation Grade
