Postdoc in Drosophila Behavioral Neurobiology Research

Job Description

A postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Fumika (Hamada) Namekawa at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center in the Division of Pediatric Ophthalmology. We aim to understand the molecular and neural mechanisms of temperature sensation and circadian rhythms using the fruit fly, Drosophila melanogaster. We use a combination of fly behavior, genetic, and physiological approaches in order to analyze the neural circuits. The laboratory is looking for an energetic, highly motivated and creative individual who is eager to explore challenging research.
