Dr. Jane Rylett's Laboratory

Postdoctoral Fellowship in Cellular and Molecular Neurobiology

We have immediate openings for national or international post-doctoral fellows to study cellular and molecular events regulating chemical communication by cholinergic neurons and pathology associated with Alzheimer disease. Projects involve use of neuronal culture and genetically-modified mouse models, and require a strong background with extensive laboratory experience in molecular and cell biology, biochemistry, confocal microscopy of fixed and live cells, and/or protein chemistry. Successful applicants will hold a Ph.D. degree, and will have demonstrated excellent oral and written communication skills and ability to work effectively in a team environment. While funding for these positions has been secured, successful applicants will be encouraged to apply for independent postdoctoral fellowships. Please send a letter of application including a one page description of past research experience and interests, a CV, and names and contact information of three references to: jane.rylett@schulich.uwo.ca

The Brain and Mind Institute

The Brain and Mind Institute has immediate openings for national or international post-doctoral fellows. We are currently undertaking collaborative, multi-disciplinary research into the neural mechanisms for visual-motor transformations and object perception, with the use of state-of-the-art techniques including functional MRI in our 4T research scanner, visual psychophysics, and 3-D motion analysis in normal subjects and patients, computational modeling, single-unit recordings in behaving primates and perceptual studies. Candidates will be encouraged to pursue projects that combine several such approaches to answer fundamental questions in systems, behavioral, cognitive, and computational neuroscience. Candidates must have a PhD (or equivalent) in a relevant neuroscience-related field and have a promising research record. Positions will include a competitive salary, start-up packages and access to the Group's core facilities. For further information on group membership, aims, and individual research projects, contact us. Candidates may contact individual group members for information about specific research projects via the Internet. Formal letters of application together with a CV and references should be sent to:
