Postdoctoral Research Fellow positions:
Understanding the mechanisms controlling receptor trafficking and localisation during synapse formation
Applications are invited for a postdoctoral research associate position to study the cellular and molecular mechanisms that regulate synapse formation.
The successful applicant will study the mechanisms that control the trafficking and localisation of Frizzled (Fz), seven-transmembrane proteins that act as receptors for Wnt ligands during synapse assembly. The postdoctoral researcher, under the direction of Professor Patricia Salinas at UCL, will take a multidisciplinary approach that combines state-of-the-art time-lapse imaging techniques to visualise receptor trafficking in neurons, super-resolution microscopy and proteomic analyses. The researcher will also perform in vivo analyses of mutant mice using cellular and functional approaches. For more information, Click Here. Deadline: 30 July 2019
Most PhD students can join the lab by enrolling in one of UCL’s distinguished 4-year PhD programmes, such as the 4-year PhD Programme in Neuroscience or the UCL Birkbeck MRC Doctoral Training Programme. If you are not eligible for these programmes, or would like to make an informal inquiry prior to making an application, please get in touch.
