A funded Postdoc position is available to investigate the olfactory system of Anopheles gambiae using transgenic mosquitoes recently developed in my lab.
The Potter Lab at Johns Hopkins aims to understand how the insect brain receives, interprets, and responds to odors. A new project in the lab is to understand how mosquitoes specifically seek humans using their sense of smell. I am looking for a highly motivated individual interested in characterizing the olfactory circuits and behaviors of mosquitoes. I am particularly interested in candidates who have experience with in vivo calcium imaging. Candidates should be hard working, good at problem-solving, innovative, and well-trained in at least one of these fields: genetics, computer programming/engineering, behavioral analysis. Working knowledge in basic molecular cloning and experience with Drosophila or mosquitoes is preferred.
Interested candidates should email a statement indicating research interests and experience, a CV, and contact info for three professional references to:
