An NIH-funded postdoctoral position is currently open for enthusiastic young scientists, for the study of new neuronal signaling pathways that involve GPCR and Ca2+ ions.
We initiate our projects with a genetic assay system, the fly photoreceptor cells, and finalize them in mammalian neurons. A variety of molecular and cell biological, biochemical and electrophysiological approaches are employed for the study. Examples of molecules under study are the GPCR-operated TRP Ca2+ channels and a brand-new neuronal transcription factor that is directly regulated by Ca2+/Calmodulin. In addition, we have newly identified several endocytosis-related genes that are implicated in the regulation of fly TRP channels. Each of these projects has the potential to be developed into a direction for a whole lab. More information on our researches can be found at the website: http://www.umassmed.edu/neurobiology/faculty/li_hs.cfm.
Applicants are expected to have strong experience in molecular and cell biology, neuroscience or fly genetics.
