A postdoctoral research position is available to investigate the role of neuron-glia interactions in the development and maintenance of the visual system, in the laboratory of Dr. Tiffany Cook in the Center of Molecular Medicine and Genetics at the Wayne State School of Medicine. The group uses the Drosophila eye as a model and applies a broad range of techniques, including cell and molecular biology, developmental genetics, electrophysiology, and genomic approaches.
