There is an open post-doctoral position for an enthusiastic and highly motivated individual in the laboratory of Samuel Young (https://young.lab.uiowa.edu/) at the University of Iowa Carver College of Medicine, Iowa City, IA. The Young laboratory is focused on the fundamental question: “How do synapses enable neuronal circuits to transmit a wide diversity of information?” results from our work will define the molecular principles that govern how synaptic properties drive neuronal circuit output, which underpins organism behavior.
Using the calyx of Held presynaptic terminal as the primary model in combination with cutting edge viral vector technology and mouse models, we are 1) determining the mechanisms for fast auditory signalling 2) defining the molecular mechanisms that regulate Cav2 subtypes levels and organization in the presynaptic terminal and their functions in defining neural circuit function.
The ideal candidate must have a PhD in a related scientific discipline and be well trained in electrophysiology and patch-clamp techniques. In addition, a background in molecular biology, advanced microscopy techniques, or hearing sciences is preferred. The candidate must have at least one first author publication.
To apply for this position visit our website at http://jobs.uiowa.edu; requisition #2920. Interested candidates should submit their Curriculum Vitae, a concise statement of research accomplishments and interests and complete contact information for at least three references. The Young laboratory is affiliated with the Department of Anatomy and Cell Biology at the University of Iowa and located within the Pappajohn Biodiscovery Building. Dr. Young is a member of the Iowa Neuroscience Institute and has a joint appointment within the Department of Otolaryngology. The PI is committed to the career development of trainees.
Iowa City is a vibrant mid-sized city that perennially ranks in the top 10 as a "Best Place to Live"http://www.iowacityareadevelopment.com/live/rankings.aspx). Information technology is the first UNESCO City of Literature in the U.S. and hosts a wide variety of cultural, artistic, and sporting events year-round.

About Samuel M. Young, Jr. Laboratory
The Samuel M. Young Lab- Carver College of Medicine-University of IowaThe Young laboratory focuses on knowledge the presynaptic mechanisms that control synaptic release probcapability and synaptic vesicle release kinetics that control the bandwidth of information transfer in different neuronal circuits. Since covering these central questions requires a multi-disciplinary approach, we have dev...eloped broad skills and innovative approaches in biochemistry, molecular biology, virology, recombinant viral vector technology, synaptic physiology, electrophysiology, neuroanatomy, and biophysics. The Roy J. and Lucille A. Carver College of Medicine is a highly ranked medical school where students lgain to become accomplished clinicians and top-flight researchers and educators. Researchers in the College's over 280 laboratories are served by state-of-the-art core research facilities and research support facilities. Much of the research conducted is interdisciplinary and collaborations are fostered and coordinated through major research centers, institutes and programs. Many faculty members are internationally renowned for their research. Two faculty members are Howard Hughes Institute Investigators, 12 are members of the Institute of Medicine and two are members of the National Academy of Sciences.
