JOB DESCRIPTION AND POSITION REQUIREMENTS:

Penn State College of Medicine in Hershey, PA is seeking a postdoctoral Scholar in Pharmacology. A postdoctoral scholar position is available at the laboratory of Yang Yang. We seek highly motivated and dedicated individuals to participate in our study on mechanisms of dopaminergic modulation in the brain affecting age-related cognitive decline. The Yang lab is a part of Translational Brain Research Center and uniquely positioned as a hub to carry interdisciplinary studies with an emphasis on neuronal and molecular mechanisms of cognition. We use multi-disciplinary approaches ranging from behavior and in vivo electrophysiology to in vitro molecular and computational modeling and pharmacology. One goal is to understand how specific receptor systems affect the function of critical cognitive systems, and use this knowledge to discover and develop novel therapeutics as treatment or prevention for cognitive decline, commonly seen in many neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease and normal aging. For additional information about Dr. Yang, please refer to the website at https://pennstate.pure.elsevier.com/en/persons/yang-yang.

As part of this position, the candidate will be given the opportunity to learn and master neurophysiological, behavioral, and pharmacological techniques routinely performed in our lab, and use quantitative and analytical skills to carry out in-depth neuroscience and mechanistic studies. We value and facilitate independent thinking, and have a supportive environment with numerous programs to enhance career development. The candidate must have a Ph.D. in Neuroscience, Physiology, Biophysics, Biochemistry, Cellular and Molecular Biology, or a related discipline. Preference will be given to candidates with some prior experience in one of the approaches we use (e.g., in vivo electrophysiology, GPCR signaling, general neuroscience methods, etc.), and a desire to become more multidisciplinary, but an interest in the function of the brain is essential.

This is a limited-term appointment funded for one year from date of hire.   Salary is commensurate with skills and level of experience. Information on University benefits programs, including eligibility, is located at https://research.med.psu.edu/postdocs/.

As one of the top-rated public universities in the country, the Pennsylvania State University is internationally renowned for its excellence in academics and research. Hershey Pennsylvania has a college town atmosphere (the medical center is the largest employer) but is culturally diverse, has superb public schools, a vigorous cultural and entertainment environment, and a variety of housing choices within minutes of Penn State College of Medicine and Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center. The town is only minutes from the state capital in Harrisburg, Philadelphia, Baltimore, and Washington DC are within two hours, and New York City within three hours. 

Individuals who are interested in this position should send a cover letter, stating their career objectives and research interests, together with their CV, including names & contact details of three references to Dr. Yang at yangyang@psu.edu, and indicate ‘Postdoc Application’ in the subject of their emails.

Employment will require successful completion of background check(s) in accordance with University polices.
