Postdoctoral position in zebrafish neurophysiology, University of Florida

Job description: A position is open for a postdoctoral researcher experienced in intracellular electrophysiology and interested in zebrafish neuroscience. The project will focus on characterizing the organization and function of lateral line afferent neurons in vivo by combining electrophysiology with transgenic lines expressing fluorescent and photo-convertible proteins.

This five year, NIH RO1 funded position offers a rare opportunity to explore the function of a tractable vertebrate circuit in a model genetic organism. Applicants must be comfortable with electrophysiological techniques and continue to demonstrate a productive record of publication in peer-reviewed journals.

Minimum requirements: Qualified applicants should have a Ph.D. in neuroscience or a related field.

Preferred qualifications: Two years experience in whole cell patch clamp electrophysiology and confocal imaging is highly desirable.

Special instructions to applicants: The position is available immediately and will remain open until filled. Please provide your C.V. with publication list, list of three academic references and a one-page statement of your research interests.

Salary: Commensurate with qualifications and experience.
