Postdoctoral position in RETINAL NEURO-BIOLOGY  

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 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 photo-responses are processed and parsed into the retinal circuitry by integrating physiology with genetics.  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 strong social skills and the ability for oral and written communication.  A strong background in electrophysiology, molecular and computational biology, and programming are highly desirable.  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 johan.pahlberg@nih.gov.  Applications will be accepted until the position is filled.

NIH is an equal opportunity employer.
