The Grutzendler lab at Yale has an opening for an outstanding, highly-motivated post-doctoral fellow to study mechanisms of neurodegeneration. The overall interest of the laboratory is to investigate cellular and molecular mechanisms of neuro-glial interactions in health and disease. We use high-resolution cellular imaging of single cells or small clusters of interacting cells in live mice combined with novel optical sensors of cellular physiology, optogenetics, chemogenetics, genome editing techniques delivered by viral vectors or in utero electroporation.
