Zip Code99164-7620
Summary of Duties

The Department of Integrative Physiology and Neuroscience has an opening for a junior postdoctoral position for an NIH-funded research programs.

We are specifically welcoming applications from highly motivated individuals with interest in neurobiology of cocaine- and heroin-seeking behaviors, drug memory reconsolidation, endocannabinoid mechanisms in drug addiction and who have demonstrated expertise in cellular/molecular neuroscience and proficiency with Western blotting and immunohistochemistry.

The Department of Integrative Physiology and Neuroscience (http://ipn.vetmed.wsu.edu/) is an academic unit of the Washington State University College of Veterinary Medicine (https://wsu.edu/). International neuroscience faculty within the department form highly collaborative research units that study substance abuse, ingestive behavior, stress, and sleep neurobiology. Thus, the candidate will have ample opportunities for collaboration and co-mentoring. Furthermore, the department offers baccalaureate and doctoral degree programs in Neuroscience, in addition to postdoctoral training.

The department is housed in an award-winning, ultra-modern BSL-2 research facility on the Pullman campus of Washington State University, and it is equipped with state-of-the-art microscopy, imaging, electrophysiology, cell biology, and behavioral testing equipment.

Pullman is a college town located in the heart of the Palouse, on the Southeast border of Washington State, with easy access to innumerable outdoor recreation opportunities. It has received accolades for highest quality of life, healthy community, safety, and green transportation (http://www.pullman-wa.gov/about-pullman/awards-and-recognitions).
