The Swayne Lab in the Division of Medical Sciences at the University of Victoria is recruiting post-doctoral researchers, or research associates, in cellular and molecular neuroscience.
The research projects investigate cross-cellular mechanisms regulating dendritic spine stability. Experiments will involve transgenic models both in situ and in vitro, a variety of imaging techniques (confocal, super-resolution, two-photon microscopy), cell biological and biochemical tools as well as electrophysiology, and behavioural studies. Successful applicants will have the opportunity to apply and expand their expertise in neuron and astrocyte biology across these approaches in a dynamic and collaborative research environment that values integrity, teamwork, equity, diversity, and inclusion.
We encourage researchers who have obtained or will soon obtain their PhD with a demonstrated track record in cellular signaling and imaging research to apply. Previous experience with fluorescence imaging, transgenic models, and primary cell culture is especially valued.
Interested applicants are invited to send their CV, list of references, and brief statement of research interests to Dr. Leigh Anne Swayne: email@example.com.
