Postdoctoral Fellows, Research Associates, Research Assistants and Graduate Students to join the research team in Dr. Ramon Jorquera’s laboratory at the Neuroscience Department of the UCC. The focus of the laboratory's work is to understand how synaptic connections form, how synapses transmit information, and how synapses undergo plastic changes in their structure and function. To complement this basic research in neuroscience, the lab also studies how alterations in neuronal signaling underlie several neurological and myasthenic diseases. The lab combines behavior, electrophysiology, fluorescence imaging, electron microscopy, molecular biology, and protein biochemistry with Drosophila genetics to address these questions. The successful applicant will join a dynamic and growing UCC and Puerto Rican neurobiology community, with access to a broad range of the latest scientific technologies.
Requirements: Strong background in electrophysiology, molecular biology, imaging or molecular dynamics are welcome. Good organizational and leadership skills, motivation and an ability to work independently required. Starting time negotiable.
The positions will available until they are filled
