Open postdoctoral position in the laboratory of Yury Miller at the University of California, San Diego. Research in the laboratory is at the intersection of lipid metabolism and inflammation, in the broad context of human disease ranging from atherosclerosis to neuropathic pain. Please see http://YuryMillerLab.ucsd.edu for an overview. We employ molecular, cellular and animal models, including mouse and zebrafish, to study role of lipid rafts in regulation of inflammatory and neurotransmitter receptor function. A specific focus of the postdoctoral project will be on function of apoA-I binding protein (AIBP; refer to Nature 2013; 498:118-22) in nociceptive signaling, using zebrafish and neuronal cell culture models. The successful candidate will be a recent PhD graduate (0-1 years) with demonstrated expertise in cloning, mutagenesis, protein expression, and cell biology techniques, including high-resolution microscopy. Expertise with genetic manipulation in zebrafish is essential, and expertise with mouse models is a plus. Please send your CV and names of 3 referees to Yury Miller, firstname.lastname@example.org.
