Postdoctoral Fellow Open Positions

Highly Motivated Postdoctoral Fellows

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:

All Postdoctoral appointments are designated as security sensitive positions. The University of Texas Health San Antonio is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer including protected veterans and persons with disabilities.

Postdoctoral Fellow for Electrophysiology

One postdoctoral fellow position is immediately available in the laboratory of Dr. Carie R. Boychuk in the Department of Cellular and Integrative Physiology at UT Health San Antonio (http://physiology.uthscsa.edu/). Candidates should be interested in investigating the synaptic mechanism(s) by which vagal motor output regulates peripheral organ function.

Research
The Boychuk Lab focuses on 1) the role of vagal motor output in the regulation of glucose homeostasis and the autonomic complications that can arise when this system is dysregulated and 2) the influence of reproductive hormones on that regulation of vagal output. To address these issues, we use physiological testing, brain micromanipulations, electrophysiology, and molecular biology.

Qualification
We are looking for highly motivated and enthusiastic talents. The candidate should have excellent communication skills, and be self-motivated, quick-learner, and importantly a team player. Candidates are required to have experience with electrophysiology and experience in working with mice or rats is preferred. Minimum requirements are Ph.D. or M.D.. Applicants who anticipate to defend their thesis in the near future are also encouraged to apply.

Please send following documents as combined single PDF to Dr. Carie Boychuk (boychukc@uthscsa.edu).
1) CV including education list, publication list and at least three names and email addresses of references
2) Summary of previous and current research including a future career plan (1-2 pages)

Cardiovascular Research in Texas

Postdoctoral training positions in cardiovascular research are immediately available at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio.  Available positions are funded by a National Institutes of Health training program (T32) with training opportunities in the fields of atherosclerosis, cerebrovascular diseases, myocardial infarction and hypertension.  Information about the training program and its faculty can be found at www.CVtrainingTexas.org. Highly motivated early-career scientists and physicians with interests in basic cardiovascular biology and mechanisms of disease are encouraged to apply.  Successful applicants will receive training in cutting edge technologies prominent in modern research.   At the time of appointment, trainees must hold an advanced academic/professional degree (e.g. DDS, DVM, MD or PhD) and be a U.S. citizen or green card holder.  San Antonio is the nation’s 7th largest city and offers rich multicultural heritage, attractive quality of life and low cost of living.  The University of Texas Health Science Center is a Tier I Research Institution situated between downtown and recreational areas in the beautiful Texas hill country. To apply, please send a curriculum vitae and cover letter, which includes a brief statement of interest and qualifications and the names of three professional referees, to Ms. Mila Grinshpan at Grinshpan@uthscsa.edu.
