The Department of Cellular and Integrative Physiology in the Long School of Medicine at the University of Texas Health San Antonio is seeking highly motivated postdoctoral fellows to engage in ongoing studies related to neuron-glia interactions underlying axonal domain organization, synapse organization and neural circuitry in genetic model systems. We are particularly interested in elucidating the molecular basis of myelin-related pathologies and neurodevelopmental disorders emerging from synaptic abnormalities. We have a highly interactive and dynamic research environment, and encourage collaborations with colleagues across disciplines. Applicants with a Ph.D. and demonstrated record of high quality publications, excellent written and communication skills and ability to design and perform research in an independent manner should apply. Experience in mouse or fly genetics, cell biology and/or biochemistry would be most suitable for our many ongoing projects.
Salary is commensurate with experience and accomplishments; starting at NIH pay scale. Additional information regarding our laboratory and scientific interests are at www.bhatlab.org and our Department and the UT Health San Antonio at https://physiology.uthscsa.edu/.
To apply, email a single pdf file with a cover letter stating career goals, CV with publications, a description of research experience and detailed contact information for three references to:
