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 light/dark-adaptive (Chaffiol et al., 2017, Current Biology) and circadian-mediated dopamine modulation of GABAA receptor function at the cone photoreceptor synapse. We employ a multidisciplinary approach for this project, utilizing genetically modified animal models, and electrophysiological, cell/molecular, neurochemical, anatomical, and computational techniques. The lab is located in an interdisciplinary and interactive department with state-of-the-art equipment and core facilities.
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, 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. The successful candidate will have the opportunity to develop an independent research project. Previous postdocs trained in the lab have become independent faculty members at research universities or senior scientists in pharmaceutical companies.
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:
