The Vollum Institute is a privately endowed research institute at Oregon Health & Science University dedicated to basic research that will lead to new treatments for neurological and psychiatric diseases. Vollum scientists have broad-ranging interests that coalesce around molecular neurobiology and cellular physiology. Their work has transformed the field of neuroscience and, in particular, have provided important advances in the study of synaptic transmission, neuronal development, neurotransmitter transporters, ion channels and the neurobiology of disease.
This position in the Baconguis lab is for a full-time postdoctoral fellow (PhD in neuroscience, biophysics, or biochemistry). The responsibilities are to investigate the molecular mechanisms of ion channels using single-particle analysis, electrophysiology, and other biochemistry and biophysical techniques. The candidate will be involved in the planning, executing, and analyzing experimental results for independent research project(s).
Planning, executing, and analyzing experiments for structure-function independent research project(s) using biochemical, biophysical approaches, and computational.
Manuscript preparation for individual projects and assisting other lab members with manuscripts as needed.
Assisting the PI and other lab members with grant application (data acquisition, writing assistance, editing) as needed. Preparing fellowship applications.
Traveling to national and international meetings to present on findings.
Helping to mentor and train junior members in the laboratory.
