Interested In Joining Our Team? Here’s a Bit About Us:
The Martemyanov 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.
We’d like to get to know you and your scientific goals! Please send a CV and three references to Prof. Kirill Martemyanov at email@example.com, indicating what interests you most about the lab’s research and the types of lab projects that you’re looking to take part in.
For Prospective Graduate Students:
Our lab is open for rotations – prospective graduate students are welcome! Please reach out to Prof. Martemyanov with your CV and availability for an introductory meeting.
For Prospective Postdoctoral Scientists:
Postdoctoral positions are available to study organization of the G protein-coupled receptor (GPCR) signaling systems in the nervous system. The focus will be on unraveling the mechanisms of newly identified molecular players and connections, including orphan receptors, signaling adaptors and extracellular partners. In addition to basic research, postdoctoral scientists will engage in translational efforts developing and performing screens to identify small molecule compounds targeting new GPCR elements – all in collaboration with the state-of-the-art drug discovery facility at Scripps.
We are looking for a highly motivated and self-driven individual who wishes to work creatively in an independent setting. Successful candidates will have recently received a Ph.D. in a relevant field and have extensive research experience, as evidenced by a strong publication record. Experience in one or more of the following areas is highly desirable: (1) molecular genetic approaches to study cellular signaling; (2) biochemistry of protein-protein interactions, kinetics, regulation of activity and expression; and (3) use of optical reporter approaches and cell-based assays.
Our laboratory embraces diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging & recognizes these concepts as key to our success.
