A postdoctoral fellow position is available in the Smith Lab at Oregon Health & Science University. The applicant should have experience in patch-clamp electrophysiology and/or Ca2+ imaging. The lab is pursuing research projects investigating the function of small nerve terminals from cerebral cortex and brainstem. We are particularly interested in the mechanisms that facilitate high rates of synaptic transmission and the effects of changes in the extracellular microenvironment on synaptic transmission. We are currently addressing these questions by using electrophysiological techniques to record from single neocortical nerve terminals and from connected pairs of neocortical neurons. This physiological approach is being supplemented by pharmacological and immunochemical techniques, please inquire.
OHSU is located in Portland, Oregon in an attractive setting only an hour away from large mountains, and the Pacific Ocean. Portland is a great city to live in. Interested persons should apply directly by sending their curriculum vitae to: Dr. Stephen M. Smith, Molecular Medicine, Hatfield Research Center, HRC-3, Oregon Health & Science University, 3181 SW Sam Jackson Pk Rd, Portland, OR 97239-3098; or submit via email firstname.lastname@example.org.
