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 and the responsibilities are to conduct research exploring the molecular and cellular mechanisms of synaptic plasticity in the mouse brain using molecular biology, electrophysiology, and microscopy.
Working conditions: Standard laboratory work, M-F 9-5 flexible with some evenings/weekends as experiments demand.
Physical demands & equipment usage: Need to be able to lift boxes and other small items as needed – approx. 20lbs.
