Department of Developmental Neurobiology

Job Description: Research in the Department of Developmental Neurobiology is focused on the fundamental processes that govern normal brain development and function. Our research enhances the understanding and treatment of a range of diseases afflicting the nervous system including cancer, defects in hearing and vision as well as neurodegenerative and psychiatric disorders. Our goal to enhance novel clinical therapies is facilitated by fostering an interactive environment where researchers investigating fundamental aspects of nervous system development and function of neural circuits are juxtaposed to those engaged in clinical and translational research. To further strengthen collaborations, the department hosts two divisions, Brain Tumor Research, and Neural Circuits and Behavior. Postdoctoral positions are available in the following research areas: Neural development, neuro-oncology, schizophrenia, neuronal precursor differentiation, neural cell death, neuronal circuitry, behavior, and neuronal epigenetics.

Center for Pediatric Neurological Disease Research

Job Description: The Center for Pediatric Neurological Disease Research focuses on human disease genetics and brain development. The Center is the basic science research arm of the newly established clinical Center for Experimental Neurotherapeutics. This collaborative joint research program is supported by faculty in the Departments of Cell & Molecular Biology, Genetics, and Developmental Neurobiology. Postdoctoral positions are available in the following research areas: Cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying neurodevelopmental disorders, gene discovery in neurologic disorders, molecular genetics of neurologic disease, and DNA damage responses in the nervous system.
