An NIH-funded postdoctoral research associate position is available to study the neural mechanisms controlling feeding and body weight.  The Roseberry lab uses a diverse array of techniques at the cellular, circuit and behavioral levels to study how dopamine circuits within the mesocorticolimbic and mesostriatal dopamine systems control feeding, activity, and body weight and how these circuits are altered by perturbations in feeding and body weight (e.g. obesity).  Multiple projects utilizing different combinations of techniques are available to the successful candidate.  Candidates should have an MD or PhD in neuroscience or a related discipline at the time of appointment, but exceptional candidates from other disciplines will be considered.  Salary is commensurate with the NIH postdoctoral fellow pay scale.  To apply, please send a cover letter briefly describing your research experience, a detailed CV, and the names and contact information for 3 references to Dr. Aaron Roseberry at aroseberry@gsu.edu.  The neuroscience community at Georgia State University is a highly interactive and collegial environment with excellent opportunities for collaboration and professional development.  Georgia State University, a Research University of the University System of Georgia, is an EEO/AA employer and encourages applications from women and under-represented minority groups.
