We are located in the Department of Cell Biology and Physiology at the Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, and are a member of Needleman Center for Neurometabolism and Axon Therapeutics.

Interested? We are looking to recruit enthusiastic postdoctoral fellowsgraduate and undergraduate students.

Postdoctoral Position

A postdoctoral position is available in the lab to investigate molecular mechanisms of metabolic regulation at nerve terminals. This project involves state-of-the-art single cell imaging using optical probes combined with protein biochemistry to study metabolic adaptation of synapses to neuronal activity. The applicant will have the opportunity to fully participate in collaborative and cutting-edge neuroscience. The lab is located in the Department of Cell Biology and Physiology at Washington University School of Medicine, with nearby access to excellent on-campus facilities and resources, such as Center for Cellular Imaging, and Needleman Center of Neurometabolism and Axon Therapeutics.

Applicant qualifications:

  • PhD or MD/PhD in physiology, cell biology, neuroscience or other relevant areas.
  • Expertise in cell culture, protein biochemistry, imaging, and data analysis is desirable
  • Strong communication skill and ability to work independently and as part of a growing team

To apply, please send your CV, a brief description of your research interests, and the contact information for three references to ghazaleh@wustl.edu.

Graduate and Undergraduate Students

Interested graduate students should apply directly to the Division of Biology and Biological Sciences and contact ghazaleh@wustl.edu about possible rotations (see faculty profile here).

Undergraduate students interested in research opportunities should send a brief statement of interests and CV to ghazaleh@wustl.edu.
