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
