As part of this dynamic group, the post-doctoral research fellow will pursue biological follow-up of emerging genetic and genomic findings in psychiatric disease using induced pluripotent stem cell based in vitro models of disease. The successful candidate should have experience in lab-based work including induced pluripotent stem cells, developmental biology (e.g., in utero electroporation), cell imaging, molecular cell biology, gene expression, proteomics, mouse model generation, and/or mouse behavioral studies.
We seek a highly motivated and dedicated M.D. or Ph.D. in molecular biology, cellular neurobiology or related areas with the ability to work well in a collaborative environment.
Duties and Responsibilities:
Ideally this candidate will interact with the PI to to pursue biological follow-up of emerging genetic and cellular findings in psychiatric disease.
Performs other related duties. Education:
Ph.D in Genetics, Biology, Molecular Biology, related topic or discipline
2 years in a laboratory/research environment
Computer and General Skills:
MS Office – Intermediate/Advanced
EndNote – Intermediate/Advanced
Illustrator/Photoshop – Intermediate/Advance
NIH ImageJ – Intermediate/Advanced
Strong training in a wide variety of cellular and molecular techniques, including: tissue culture, neural differentiation, viral transuction, cell biology, molecular cloning, gene expression, and additional methods of functional analyses.
Strong communication and writing skills.
