The Kiril Martemyanov Laboratory at the Scripps Research Institute Florida

Job Opportunities

To apply please send CV to Dr. Kirill Martemyanov at kirill@scripps.edu

Graduate Students:

Our lab is open for rotations. Prospective Graduate Students are welcome!

Postdoctoral Scientists:

We currently have one position available.

Cellular and Molecular Neurobiology of G protein Signal Transduction
The project will focus on delineating roles of the RGS proteins and associated signaling molecules in the synaptic transmission between the neurons of brain and retina. We are particularly interested in candidates with substantial experience with the use of electrophysiological approaches for the characterization of neuronal signaling. It is expected that postdoctoral scientist will be using a range of the molecular, cellular, and behavioral approaches to study functional regulation of G protein signaling pathways in reconstituted systems and genetic animal models.

TSRI embraces diversity & recognizes it as being a key to our success. EOE/M/F/V/D

About the Lab:

The laboratory is a part of the Department of Neuroscience and Department of Metabolism & Aging at Scripps-Florida. The laboratory employs a wide range of approaches spanning from enzyme kinetics and protein-protein interactions to imaging of protein trafficking and second messenger signaling in live cells, mass-spectrometry assisted proteomics, as well as development and functional characterization of knockout/transgenic mouse models including behavioral and electrophysiological measurements.
