Job Description
The Department of Neurology at the University of Maryland School of Medicine (George Uhl MD PhD PI) is recruiting for highly qualified postdoctoral researchers. Researchers will aid work that is developing new small molecules toward use in humans. They will aid understanding of the novel targets that have been identified in human genome wide association and confirmatory mouse model experiments. Major current foci: inhibitors and substrate-selective positive allosteric modulators of the receptor type protein tyrosine phosphatase, PTPRD, as novel therapeutics for addictions and Alzheimer’s disease neurofibrillary pathology, respectively. (see Uhl et al, PNAS 2018 for lead compound PTPRD phosphatase inhibitor).

We seek highly motivated scientists with PhD and/or MD in an appropriate field. Experience in molecular biology, biochemistry, molecular genetics, mouse behavioral assays as well as willingness to learn associated areas are positives. We are interested in researchers who can work well independently and in collaboration with University and VA researchers with medicinal chemistry, behavioral, molecular genetic, neurology and drug development backgrounds.

Welcome to the Baltimore campus of the University of Maryland, founded in 1807 along a ridge in what was then called Baltimore Town. Today, this 61-acre research and technology complex encompasses 65 buildings in West Baltimore near the Inner Harbor.

The University is Maryland's only public academic health, human services, and law center. Seven professional and graduate schools train the majority of the state's physicians, nurses, dentists, lawyers, social workers, and pharmacists.

Under the leadership of President Jay A. Perman, MD, the University is a leading partner in the redevelopment of the west side of Baltimore. The University of Maryland BioPark, which opened in October 2005, promotes collaborative research opportunities and bioscience innovation.

Sponsored research totaled $567.1 million in Fiscal Year 2010. With 6,349 students and 6,717 faculty members and staff, the University is an economic engine that returns more than $15 in economic activity for every $1 of state general funds appropriation. The University community gives more than 2 million hours a year in service to the public.


The University of Maryland, Baltimore (UMB) is the State¹s public health, law and human services university devoted to excellence in professional and graduate education, research, patient care, and public service. As a diverse community of outstanding faculty, staff and students, and using state-of-the-art technological support, we educate leaders in health care delivery, biomedical science, global health, social work and the law. We emphasize interdisciplinary education and research in an atmosphere that explicitly values civility, diversity, collaboration, teamwork and accountability. By conducting internationally recognized research to cure disease and to improve the health, social functioning and just treatment of the people we serve, we foster economic development in the City, State, and nation. We are committed to ensuring that the knowledge we generate provides maximum benefit to society and directly enhances our various communities.
