Funded Postdoctoral Scholar or Senior Scientist Position in the Pyter Lab at Ohio State University

Ohio State University

The Pyter Lab invites diverse applicants to apply for a *funded* multi-year postdoctoral or senior scientist opening at the Institute for Behavioral Medicine Research in the College of Medicine at Ohio State University in Columbus, OH. The project is on master clock mechanisms underlying the behavioral side effects of cancer chemotherapy. We will use analyses of behavioral, cellular, and molecular rhythms in mouse models of chemotherapy.

The Pyter lab team generally studies the biological mechanisms by which tumors (outside the brain) and cancer treatments alter neurobiology and behavior. These mechanisms include immune, endocrine, and microbial. We primarily use basic science approaches in rodent models, but also conduct clinical research with cancer patients. We are collaborating with Dr. Karl Obrietan’s lab on this specific rhythms project. The successful candidate will receive mentorship and training in these approaches, as well as in experimental design, execution, data analyses, scientific communication, and other areas of professional development to advance their interests and goals.

For more information, please contact Dr. Leah Pyter at, visit our website at, and/or follow us on Twitter at @PyterLab.
