Job Summary:

The research in the lab focuses on investigating the neural mechanism that controls nutrient-specific feeding behavior. By employing molecular biology, neurogenetics, behavior, and functional imaging techniques, the laboratory will use Drosophila as a model organism to explore the following questions: 1) What is the neuronal substrate that orchestrates protein-feeding behavior? 2) How are different nutrient-specific signals integrated in central circuits to regulate feeding? 3) How do internal states regulate feeding through neuromodulation of different feeding circuits?

Responsibilities include: Design, perform experiments and analyze data. Will use a variety of conventional techniques. May need to adapt techniques or protocols to perform the desired analysis. Prepare scientific results for scientific meetings, publications and research grants.

Minimum Qualifications:

Ph.D. in neuroscience, molecular and cell biology, neurogenetics, or a related field. One to two years of postdoctoral or industry experience, is required.

Preferred Qualifications:

Candidates with experience in fly tissue dissection, immunohistochemistry, and Ca2+ functional imaging will be strongly preferred.
