Post-doctoral Research Fellow in Neurobiology
Salary: £33,518 to £38,833 pa - Grade 7
We wish to appoint a Post-doctoral Research Fellow to support a highly motivated scientist, Professor Edgar Kramer, at the Peninsula School of Medicine of University of Plymouth, UK.
The primary function of the role is to perform collaborative and independent research to study the electrophysiological properties of midbrain dopaminergic neurons and/or the molecular signalling pathways in the dopaminergic circuit in different mouse models. A variety of electrophysiological, genetic, molecular biology and biochemical techniques will be employed, including extra- and intracellular recordings and fast scan cyclic voltammetry on transgenic mice. The work is expected to significantly enhance our understanding of midbrain dopaminergic system function and should shed some light on the etiology and possible therapy of Parkinson disease and drug addiction.
This post is a full-time position working 37 hours per week, on a fixed-term basis starting in Spring 2018. Funding is available for 36 months, and renewal upon the first and second year is contingent on mutual agreement and satisfactory performance.
For an informal discussion please contact Dr. Edgar Kramer, Professor of Neurodegenerative Diseases, via e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
Closing date: 12 midnight, Tuesday 2 January 2018
