We have a position opening up in early/mid July in the Pharmacology Department at the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences. This position is perfect for a student applying to medical school and looking for a full time job with benefits.

The job consists largely of using a complex computer program to trace individual neuron's axonal and dendritic trees. While this requires no artistic talent, extraordinary patience is essential as each neuron can take up to one week to trace. An excellent knowledge of biostatistics is required. Additionally, as it is necessary to work with massive quantities of data, excellent organizational skills are also desired. Familiarity with mechanisms of epilepsy is a plus as this is the primary focus of the lab's research.

At the moment, the PI can guarantee funding for 6 months, but with recent promising preliminary data, the grant may be extended further. This project offers a great opportunity for a very probable publication.

We are located on the campus of the Naval Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland, across the street from NIH. While this is a military base, rest assured that USUHS itself is an academic center like any other, with many weekly opportunities to attend lectures and seminars held by visiting professors.

You will need a minimum of B.A. or B.S. to be considered. Those with extensive research experience are preferred, especially in the fields of neuroscience and/or epilepsy. Please PM me your CV and contact information if you are interested in the position.
