One of the major themes in our lab is to understand the mechanisms underlying neuronal cell type diversity.
A primary focus is on the development of mouse retinal bipolar interneurons, which make up a heterogeneous and functionally complex class of retinal interneurons essential for receiving, processing and transmitting visual signals.
University of Victoria employs a variety of cell and molecular approaches on transgenic and knock-out mouse models.
University of Victoria lab is part of the Neuroscience group and Centre for Biomedical Research at the University of Victoria.
UV is located on the southernmost tip of the picturesque Vancouver Island and is a short trip to Vancouver and Seattle
The candidate must have a PhD or MD/PhD with a strong background in cell and molecular biology.
Hands-on experience with animal models is highly desired and knowledge in ocular or neurobiology and/or developmental biology is a plus.
