The McIntyre lab belongs to neuroscience concentration of the Graduate Program in Biomedical Sciences the University of Florida. We are also associated with the University of Florida Genetics Institute and accepting students from the Genetics and Genomics Graduate program. Students are being accepted for rotations and to join the lab permanently. Please e-mail to discuss a possible rotation. Projects will focus on gene therapy in the olfactory epithelium, ciliopathies in the olfactory bulb, and cilia mediated neuromodulation with a wide range of techniques.
We are looking for independent, motivated scientists interested in building creative research programs around: 1) Restoration of olfactory function in channelopathy models of anosmia. 2) Modulation of olfactory bulb neurons through primary cilia signaling. The lab employs electrophysiology, functional imaging, immunofluorescence, and behavioral techniques to address our goals. Postdocs will also be encouraged to develop independent projects that fit the general mission of the lab, with the ultimate goal of independence. The successful candidate will join a vibrant center of researchers interested in Smell and Taste, a strong department of neuroscience and a college of medicine with numerous opportunities to collaborate.
Interested candidates are encouraged to send a cover letter and CV to jmcin (at) ufl (dot) edu
Please send an e-mail with a short note about your interest in our lab, your CV, and a transcript to Jeremy at jmcin (at) ufl (dot) edu. Opportunities also exist for summer research through the Summer Neuroscience Internship Program
