Yale University School of Medicine
Postdoctoral positions are available in the laboratory of Dr. Shyam Krishnakumar in the Department of Neurology/Yale Nanobiology Institute, Yale University School of Medicine.
The successful candidate will apply biochemical, biophysical, and optical methods, with a specific focus on systematic biochemical reconstitution to study the molecular mechanisms of synchronicity and use-dependent plasticity of neurotransmitter release.
They will be an integral part of a collaborative research program with Prof. Kirill Volynski group in the UCL Queen Square Institute of Neurology/Yale University.
The applicant should possess (or soon hope to hold) Ph.D. in a relevant discipline within biochemistry, cell biology, or neuroscience and a track record of experimental laboratory research, with a strong publication record.
- Experience in protein biochemistry is essential and fluorescence microscopy (confocal/TIRF imaging) is highly desirable.
- Understanding of membrane biology, molecular biology, and biophysical principles, are desirable as is knowledge of scientific computer programming.
- The applicant must be capable of working independently and also, as part of a collaborative team.
Applicants should send CV and other relevant details to Dr. Shyam Krishnakumar (firstname.lastname@example.org).
