POSTDOCTORAL POSITION available to study the role of postsynaptic scaffolding proteins (MAGUKs) in developmental neurotoxicity and long-term cognitive dysfunction. Focus is on the role of the PSD-95 family of MAGUK proteins and their downstream pathways in regulating synaptic development and function, mediating anesthetic sensitivity and neurotoxicity, and chronic pain. Critical skills include a strong technical expertise in biochemistry, imaging, rodent behavior, cellular and molecular biology. Helpful to have knowledge of MAGUK scaffolding protein function and experience in neurophysiology, fret imaging, protein-protein interaction, and dendritic spine analysis. Highly motivated PhDs with a strong publication record are encouraged to apply. 

Send application letter, CV and contact information for three references to Dr. Roger Johns (rajohns@jhmi.edu) and cc to Mr. Robert Burke ( rburke@jhmi.edu).
