A postdoctoral fellow position is available in the lab of Dr. Melanie Samuel at Baylor College of Medicine in the fields of neuroscience, nanoscopic imaging, and computational biology.
Our group focuses on synaptic development and translational applications in neural diseases. We seek to uncover molecules that control neural identity and synaptic partner choice and to understand how disruptions in these choices may contribute to disease. To accomplish these goals, we employ nanoscopic imaging, computation, and single cell based approaches together with high throughput genetics. Ongoing projects are aimed at deciphering neuron-glia interactions and uncovering snaptic wiring- and rewiring- mechanisms.
As a member of the lab, you will join a dynamic and motivated team that brings a creative force to problem solving. We tackle fundamental questions in neuroscience by proactively reaching out to the community and reaching within to develop new approaches.
Candidates should hold a PhD and have a background in engineering, physics, imaging, or computation as well as an interest applying these tools to solve problems in biology. In particular, we seek individuals that bring kindness, drive, and innovative approaches to their work. Highly motivated applicants are welcome to submit inquiries about positions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
