        POSTDOCTORAL POSITION

An NIH-funded postdoctoral fellowship is available to study neuroendocrine
function during aging at the cellular and molecular level.  The postdoctoral
fellow can choose to develop and work on one or more of the following
projects: (1) mechanisms by which estrogen enhances neuron survival during
aging and after injury; (2) function of estrogen in coupling circadian
information to the reproductive axis in females; (3) mechanisms regulating
the decline of neurotransmitter and neuropeptide expression during aging;
(4) role of neuron-astrocyte interactions in maintaining neuroendocrine and
circadian function in the aging brain.  The fellow will have the opportunity
to learn and utilize a variety of cellular and molecular methods that are
necessary to pursue these projects.  Interactions with postdocs, graduate
students and faculty members of the Training Programs in Molecular and
Cellular Aspects of Brain Aging and Reproductive Sciences with further
enrich the training experience.
