UCSF Postdoctoral Position: Molecular Neuroscience

An open position for postdoctoral fellow to study signaling pathways and plasticity mechanisms that underlie addiction in the laboratory of Prof. Dorit Ron at the University of California, San Francisco.

Research in the Ron lab uses state-of-the-art techniques including, molecular/genetic technique for gene manipulations in subpopulations of neurons in vivo, viral-mediated gene delivery, RNA-seq and analysis in combination of transgenic animals, chemogenetics, and structural plasticity using 3-D reconstruction of single neurons as well as behavioral approaches (Examples, Barak et al. Nature Neuroscience 2013, Warnault et al., Biological Psychiatry 2016, Liu et al. Molecular Psychiatry 2017, Laguesse et al. Neuron 2017). Highly motivated candidates with in depth experience in molecular biology techniques including cloning that will be graduating within the next 6 months or have recently graduated are welcome to apply. The position offers an opportunity to be part of a collaborative team at the vibrant research community at the UCSF Mission Bay campus.  

Please send Curriculum Vitae and names of three references to: Professor Dorit Ron, Department of Neurology, University of California San Francisco, dorit.ron@ucsf.edu
