Job DescriptionPostdoc position is available at the Scripps Research Institute in Jupiter, Forida. The work will be focused on unraveling function and mechanisms of newly identified molecules in G Protein Coupled Receptor (GPCR) signaling pathways and understanding their role in nervous system function and neuropsychiatric disease. The laboratory is interested in many aspects of receptor biology. Potential projects include:
-Neuroscience: synaptic connectivity, circuit function and genetic mouse models
-Development and use of optical sensors to understand neuromodulation
-Molecular and cellular mechanisms of GPCR signaling and trafficking
-Genetic and proteomic screens to identify novel GPCR regulators.
-Structural basis of receptor signaling and drug discovery
We are a diverse group with a variety of backgrounds in science, culture, ethnicity and ways in life. The PI is serious about mentoring and trains postdocs to become independent tenure-track investigators. Scripps Research provides an outstanding intellectual environment and access to a wide range of cutting-edge technologies.
