Postdoctoral Fellowship
St. Louis, Missouri

A postdoctoral position is available at Washington University School
of Medicine (St. Louis) to examine cellular mechanisms of neuronal
injury.   The focus of the laboratory is on hypoxic, traumatic and
excitotoxic damage to neurons and glia in primary culture.  Current
projects examine calcium homeostasis and cytoskeletal disruption
during glutamate receptor activation.  The postdoctoral fellow will
develop an independent project in these areas using fluorescence
videomicroscopy and/or confocal microscopy.  

The laboratory is located in the Center for the Study of Nervous
System Injury (Department of Neurology) at Washington University. For
more information about the lab, please visit our web page listed

Date Available:  March 1 - July 1, 1997

Requirements: Ph.D., M.D., or equivalent.  Candidates should have
experience (supported by publications) in cellular or molecular
neuroscience, cytoskeletal biology, and/or confocal microscopy.
Familiarity with neuronal cell culture, electrophysiology, and
glutamate receptor pharmacology is desirable.  Candidates with
appropriate experience and interests will be asked to provide three
reference letters.
