RESEARCH POSITION IN NEUROSCIENCE
A Postdoctoral/Research Associate position is available to study retinal neuroscience in the lab of Dr. Stuart Mangel at the Ohio State University Medical Center. We use the vertebrate retina, which is part of the brain, as a model system for understanding brain function and neuromodulation due to its easy accessibility and well-characterized inputs. The Postdoc/ Research Associate will work on an NIH-funded research project that is studying how the circadian (24-hour) clock in the retina modulates cellular and molecular processes and chemical and electrical synaptic transmission in the day and night (e.g. see Ribelayga, Cao and Mangel, 2008, Neuron). More specifically, the work will investigate dopamine modulation of GABAA receptor function at the cone photoreceptor synapse (Chaffiol et al., 2017, Current Biology). We employ a multidisciplinary approach for this project, utilizing genetically modified animal models, and electrophysiological, cell/molecular, neurochemical, anatomical, and computational techniques.
We seek a highly motivated individual with a Ph.D. in neuroscience, physiology, biology or a related basic science discipline for this position. Previous training in electrophysiology, especially patch-clamp recording, or immunocytochemistry is desirable, but not required. Salary is competitive with respect to NIH recommended levels, and benefits are included. The starting date of the position is flexible. A minimum commitment of 2 years is desired. This position represents a unique opportunity for career development, for learning a variety of techniques to study brain function, and for interactions with other Ohio State University investigators.
To apply, please e-mail a single pdf file that contains the following items to Dr. Stuart Mangel (Stuart.Mangel at osumc.edu): 1) a 1-2 page letter that describes your research interests and experience; 2) your curriculum vitae; and 3) the names of three references, including their contact information. Alternatively, application materials can be mailed to:
