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 is full-time postdoctoral level (PhD in neuroscience or biophysics). The responsibilities are to conduct research exploring the molecular and cellular mechanisms of synaptic transmission between neurons using electrophysiology and/or calcium imaging. The candidate will be involved in planning, executing, and analyzing experiments for independent research project(s) using electrophysiology, molecular, cellular, circuit and live imaging approaches in the mammalian brain.
