Research Assistant Professor - Neuronal Mechanisms of Anxiety Disorders

The Department of Psychiatry at Indiana University School of Medicine is seeking applicants for a full-time Research Assistant Professor position. The primary activity of a Research Assistant Professor will be to conduct research in association with a highly dynamic and collaborative team working on understanding the neuronal mechanisms of anxiety disorders (e.g., panic disorder, social anxiety and posttraumatic stress disorder) and autism spectrum disorders. The collaborative team goals are to investigate the mechanisms involved in development of anxiety, fear and emotional memory formation/storage using variety of behavioral, neuroanatomical, molecular and electrophysiological techniques from wild-type, transgenic and knock-out rodent models.

To be considered, applicants are required to have a Ph.D. in physiology, neuroscience or in a closely related field with at least 7 or more years of experience in cellular electrophysiology (whole-cell patch clamp from brain slices and neuronal cultures). The candidates must have previous experience with recording of long-term potentiation and long-term depression in limbic brain regions. Applicants are also required to have research expertise in pharmacology relative to G protein-coupled receptors and related neurotransmitter ion channels and transporters. The successful candidate must be able to perform self-directed work, and possess excellent collaborative skills with demonstrated experience writing manuscripts and research grant proposals. The selected candidate will be expected to further develop, manage, and maintain his or her own independent, extramurally funded research program(s). The research expertise in lab animal (rodent) behavioral models is desirable.

Applicants must be legally authorized to work in US without any restrictions. Compensation is dependent upon qualifications. Review of applicants will continue until the position is filled. Applicants should submit a cover letter indicating their area of interest, complete curriculum vitae and three letters of reference to:

Research Associate

The Department of Psychiatry at Indiana University School of Medicine is seeking applicants for a full-time Research Associate position.  The primary activity of this Research Associate will be to
conduct research in association with a highly dynamic and collaborative team working on understanding the neuronal mechanisms of alcohol as well as drug abuse and dependence.  The collaborative team goals are to investigate the mechanisms involved in the development of alcohol and drug abuse/dependence using genetically selected rat lines with a propensity for high alcohol intake.  Focuses include shRNAi knock-down of receptors (e.g., neurotransmitters, neuropeptides and immune signals) within the mesocorticolimbic dopamine system;  adapting an autonomic/cue-reactivity rat model to evaluate mechanisms of relapse and their pharmacological inhibition; conducting preclinical testing of compounds to interfere with chronic alcohol as well as drug abuse and relapse; and determining
developmental-by-drug-exposure differences in glutamatergic activity (molecular to systems level) within the mesocorticolimbic as well as extended amygdala reward systems.

To be considered, applicants are required to have a Ph.D. in behavioral neuroscience or in a closely related field and should be proficient in stereotaxic surgeries on, as well as behavioral testing of,
rats.  Experience in surgical implantation of radiotelemetric heart rate monitors is a plus.  Applicants also need to have research expertise in pharmacology related to G protein-coupled receptors and associated
neurotransmitter/neuromodulator ion channels and transporters.  The successful candidate must be able to perform self-directed work, and possess excellent collaborative skills with demonstrated experience in oral and written presentation of research findings.

Applicants must be legally authorized to work in the U.S. without any restrictions.  Compensation is dependent upon qualifications and commensurate with NIH guidelines.  Review of applicants will continue until the position is filled.  Applicants should submit a cover letter indicating their area of interest, complete curriculum vitae and three letters of reference to:
