We are recruiting a post-doctoral fellow to investigate photoreceptor physiology and molecular mechanisms underlying signaling in the retinal circuitry. The position will be in the newly established Photoreceptor Physiology Group (https://pahlberglab.com) led by Dr. Johan Pahlberg at NIDCR, in close collaboration with Dr. Anand Swaroop, Chief, N-NRL at NEI (https://nei.nih.gov/intramural/nnrl). The Pahlberg lab is interested in elucidating how rod photoresponses are processed and parsed into the retinal circuitry by integrating physiology with genetics. Research methods will include single cell patch-clamp recordings, whole retina electroretinogram recordings and behavioral experiments.
Training at NIH provides access to a dynamic research environment and the scientific resources of the larger neuroscience community, with great opportunities for establishing interactions and collaborations. The successful candidate should have a Ph.D. in neuroscience, physiology, biophysics, or related fields, with a strong background in electrophysiology, molecular and computational biology, and programming. The selected fellow would possess strong motivation to develop independent research projects and scientific curiosity.
Please submit a curriculum vitae, one-page statement of research interests, and the contact information for three references to email@example.com. Applications will be accepted until the position is filled.
NIH is an equal opportunity employer.
