THE SCRIPPS RESEARCH INSTITUTE
POSTDOCTORAL POSITIONS IN NEUROSCIENCE
Two post-doctoral positions are available in the laboratory of Dr. Sathya Puthanveettil for
electrophysiologists who are interested in studying molecular and cellular mechanisms
underlying long-term memory storage using Aplysia and mouse models.
Dr. Puthanveettil’s research focuses on (1) molecular motor complexes and transport of proteins
and RNAs to synapses and (2) transcriptome dynamics and regulation of translation in neural
circuits. For publications see Cell. 135:960-73; Neuron. 59:1024-36. PNAS. 104:5632-7;
Cell.127:1453-67. Puthanveettil laboratory integrate several disciplines such as genomics,
proteomics, biochemistry, electrophysiology and behavior.
There will be ample opportunities available for developing new skills, interacting with other
Departments at Scripps and elsewhere. Department of Neuroscience has state of the art facilities
for imaging, behavior, genomics and biochemistry. The infrastructure at Scripps Florida includes
unique chemical, genomic, proteomic, informatics, and high-throughput screening tools for the
discovery of novel biomolecules.
An ideal candidate will have a PhD and/or MD degree with experience in extracellular and
intracellular recording from slices, preparation of organotypic and neuronal cultures, micro
injection and be interested in high throughput biology.
Scripps offers an exceptional environment for post-doctoral fellows who are interested in
advancing their career into Academics or Industry. My laboratory is in the Jupiter Campus which
is in the beautiful Palm Beach, Florida.
Interested candidates should send their CV, a brief statement of interests and contact details of
three referees to my e-mail address (email@example.com). These positions are available from
