Edwards School of Medicine, Marshall University and the Huntington VA Medical Center. This laboratory is seeking a highly motivated and enthusiastic postdoc to investigate how astrocytes influence neuronal structure and function and contribute to enduring changes in cognition following ethanol exposure using a rodent model of adolescent binge drinking. Over the last few decades it has become apparent that astrocytes play an important role in synapse formation, synapse maintenance across the life-span, and synaptic recovery following injury. However, how astrocytes contribute to changes in neuronal function following repeated intermittent ethanol exposure is not fully understood. To answer these questions, we use various ethanol exposure paradigms in rat and mouse models of adolescent binge drinking and a multidisciplinary approach which includes: behavioral, structural, and functional analysis. Techniques used to answer these questions include: intracranial survival surgeries, viral vector approaches, immunohistochemistry, Western blot, PCR, organotypic slice culture, confocal microscopy, 3D image analysis, and a battery of behavioral paradigms including conditioned place preference, open field, social interaction, and plus maze. Knowledge, Skills, and Abilities (include certifications) Salary Range $48,432 Salary Type Time Type Work Location MUSOM - MU School of Medicine Qualifications Must be able to perform all essential job duties as outlined in the job description. Required Qualifications Required Education Ph.D. in neuroscience, pharmacology or related fields. Required Experience Prior experience in one or more of the following areas: electrophysiology, addiction or self-administration paradigms, rodent behavior assays, survival surgery, confocal microscopy. Additional experience with adenovirus, lentivirus or transgenic mouse lines is a plus. Successful applicants will be expected to work as part of a team, provide training and mentorship to graduate and undergraduate students. They must be able to work independently towards the generation of manuscripts for publication and will be expected to apply for independent funding. This laboratory is affiliated with the Veteran Affairs Medical Center, providing additional funding opportunities for trainees and young investigators.
