A postdoctoral position is available at the Scripps Research Institute on Jupiter, Florida campus to study organization of the G protein Coupled Receptor (GPCR) signaling systems in the nervous system. The focus will be on unraveling the mechanisms of newly identified molecular players and connections including orphan receptors, signaling adaptors and extracellular partners. In addition to basic research, postdoctoral scientist will have opportunities to engage in translational efforts developing and performing screens to identify small molecule compounds targeting new GPCR elements in collaboration with the state-of-the-art drug discovery facility at Scripps. The laboratory is using multidisciplinary approach that relies on genetic mouse models, proteomics, imaging, and innovative FRET/BRET optical sensor technologies to study cellular signaling. Please visit laboratory website at http://www.scripps.edu/martemyanov for the description of current research directions.
We are looking for a highly-motivated and self-driven individual who wishes to work creatively in an independent setting. Successful candidates will have recently received a Ph.D. degree and have extensive research experience as evidenced by a strong publication record. Experience in one or more of the following areas is highly desirable: (1) molecular genetic approaches to study cellular signaling (2) biochemistry of protein-protein interactions, kinetics, regulation of activity and expression (3) use of optical reporter approaches and cell-based assays.
To apply, please send CV, brief description of research interests and contact information of references to Dr. Kirill Martemyanov at email@example.com. The Scripps Research Institute provides an outstanding intellectual environment and access to a wide range of cutting edge technologies and the PI is committed to the career development of trainees. TSRI embraces diversity & recognizes it as being a key to our success. EOE/M/F/V/D
