Cellular and Molecular Neurobiology Postdoctoral Positions
Postdoctoral positions funded by a Neurobiology NIH Training
Grant are available at the Worcester Foundation for Biomedical
Research. The faculty and their research interests are:
Michele Jacob: Molecular mechanisms of neuronal synapse formation;
viral-vector mediated gene transfer in vivo.
Daniel Kilpatrick: Transcriptional regulation of neuronal
differentiation; TrkA promoter regulation in neurons and
Stephen Lambert: Role of membrane-cytoskeleton interactions during
axonal outgrowth and myelination.
Jose Lemos: Stimulus-secretion coupling at nerve terminals;
mechanisms modulating neurotransmitter release.
Robert O'Connell: Neurobiology of quality perception in olfaction
including stimulus detection, transduction, coding and behavior.
Alonzo Ross: Molecular analysis of Trk and low-affinity NGF
receptors, signal transduction, stem cells, neural tumors and
Richard Vallee: Microtubule motor proteins; synaptic GTPase
David Wolf: Photochemical analysis of TrkA and low affinity
NGF receptor interactions.
Zuoshang Xu: Neurofilaments, SOD1, motor neuron disease and
We are a private, basic research institute on a suburban campus
