Postdoctoral Associate

Research Focus: The Futai laboratory focuses on elucidating, i) the roles of Neuroligin-Neurexin interactions in the formation of functional excitatory and inhibitory synapses, ii) the epigenetic regulation of homeostatic plasticity and iii) the molecular architecture of excitatory synapses in inhibitory neurons by using mouse models of Alzheimer's disease. We are seeking highly motivated individuals eager to participate in a collaborative environment.

One position is immediately available in the Futai laboratory in the Department of Neurobiology, University of Massachusetts Medical School (UMMS). [https://profiles.umassmed.edu/display/130154]

Our research concentrates in the elucidation of cellular and molecular basis that regulates the balance of excitatory and inhibitory synaptic transmission in the brain. The research will be conducted by multidisciplinary approaches integrating electrophysiology, molecular biology and biochemistry.

REQUIRED QUALIFICATIONS:

Applicants should have PhD degree in Neuroscience, Cell Biology, Physiology or related biological areas. Individuals are expected to be knowledgeable in cellular biology, molecular biology, or electrophysiology and to have peer-reviewed publications. Researchers interested in combining electrophysiology and molecular cell biology approaches are especially encouraged to apply.

 

To Apply:

Please email CV, statement of research and three references to: Kensuke.Futai@umassmed.edu
