ポスドク募集、ミシガン大学医学部(PI: Hisashi Umemori)



現在、ポスドクを募集中です。 我々の研究に興味を持ち、意欲のある人からの応募を歓迎します。 以下の要領で、応募して下さい。

Postdoctoral positions are available at the University of Michigan Medical School (Ann Arbor, Michigan).

In the brain, information processing occurs at synapses, and defects in synapse formation are likely to underlie many neurological and psychiatric diseases. We are therefore interested in the molecules and structures that regulate synapse formation and maintenance in the mammalian brain. We are particularly interested in the mechanisms underlying synapse specificity (e.g., Terauchi et al., Nature, 2010) and activity-dependent synapse refinement (e.g., Yasuda et al., Neuron, 2011).

M.D. and/or Ph.D. scientists trained in any fields of molecular and cellular biology are welcome to apply. Any interested individual should send their CV, a brief statement of scientific/research interests and contact information for three references to "umemoh@umich.edu".
