Postdoctoral Scholar Position - UC Davis
The Olson Research Group is a new lab at UC Davis specializing in chemical neuroscience. We are seeking a highly motivated postdoctoral scholar with expertise in the area of organic synthesis (methodology development and/or total synthesis) to work on an unorthodox, but potentially transformative new synthetic approach for achieving multi-step complex molecule synthesis in a single reaction vessel. Application of this methodology to the rapid synthesis of psychoactive alkaloids and their analogs is a major goal of this project. Additionally, our highly interdisciplinary environment provides ample opportunity for scientific growth in other aspects of our group’s research ranging from chemical biology and molecular neurobiology to neuropharmacology and behavioral neuroscience. Participation in these project areas is a possibility if so desired. Funding for the initial phase of the project is guaranteed, but the candidate will be expected to apply for external funding to extend the length of the tenure. Ideally, the successful candidate would begin work as early as November or December; however, the start date is flexible. Interested parties should send a single file pdf containing a cover letter, curriculum vitae, and a short description of relevant research experience. Additionally, 3 letters of recommendation should be sent directly from the candidate’s mentors. All those interested in the nexus between synthetic chemistry and neuroscience are encouraged to apply. Please send your application materials and letters of recommendation to firstname.lastname@example.org.
