There are three (3) postdoctoral positions available to synthesize with Dr. Malgorzata Dukat in the Department of Medicinal Chemistry and evaluate with Dr. Javier Gonzalez-Maeso in the Department of Physiology & Biophysics the molecular pharmacology, synaptic plasticity and mouse behavioral effects of new serotonin GPCR agonists. Applicants should have a PhD and strong interest in medicinal chemistry, psychopharmacology and/or molecular neuroscience. Experience in mouse modeling would be advantageous but is not required. Recent graduates are welcome to apply. Applicants should have excellent communications skills and provide a complete CV with a brief statement of research interests, career goals and contact info for at least three references to Dr. Dukat (firstname.lastname@example.org – medicinal chemistry research) or Dr. Maeso (email@example.com – molecular neuroscience research).
If you would like to pursue graduate studies in our laboratory, you could apply through the PhD or MD/PhD programs at Virginia Commonwealth University School of Medicine.
