Neurotrophic Factors for the RetinaPosted by: National Institutes of Health (NIH)
Posted date: 2019-Jul-12
A postdoctoral fellowship position is available to study proteins that affect the function of the retina. The current goal of our section is the elucidation of the mechanisms of neurotrophic action on the retina. Our goal is to understand neurotrophic interactions, signaling pathways, and metabolomics to aid in the identification of potential drug targets that can prevent retinal degeneration. The laboratory utilizes multidisciplinary approaches using biochemical and cellular techniques as well as animal models. A new project will study the downstream neurotrophic effects of PEDF on lipid metabolism.
The research group in which the position is located is the Section of Protein Structure and Function, Laboratory of Retinal Cell and Molecular Biology, National Eye Institute. For additional information, please refer to the following webpage: http://irp.nih.gov/pi/s-patricia-becerraQualifications:
We are seeking highly motivated candidates with a PhD in the biomedical sciences, with strong verbal and writing skills, and experience in biochemistry, cell and molecular biology. Knowledge and experience with lipases and metabolomics in the retina is a plus.To Apply:
Please send a curriculum vitae, bibliography, cover letter with a brief description of candidate's interest in position, research experience and long-term career goals, and the names of 3 references (with phone numbers) via e-mail to becerrapnei.nih.gov, or via post to:
