A group focusing in Drug Discovery within the Department of Pharmacology and Toxicology at University at Buffalo is seeking a highly motivated Research Scientist with strong expertise in the use of animals in behavioral animal models, and understanding of molecular neuropharmacology and signaling as apply to small molecules. Research will focus on how novel compounds with therapeutic potential affect the MT1 and MT2 melatonin receptor signaling, and behavior in mouse models of canonical behaviors and circadian rhythms disruption (e.g., jet lag, delay/advance sleep, depression).
Research activities will include characterizing novel molecules with therapeutic potential targeting melatonin receptors using molecular pharmacology approaches in cell base functional screens, as well as in various in vivo behavioral and circadian models.
