Job Details

An opportunity is available in Dr. Troy Ghashghaei's laboratory ( for an experienced research scholar to conduct cutting edge, NIH-funded research on neurodevelopment. The laboratory uses novel mouse genetic approaches to study the emergence of unique cellular populations during embryonic and early postnatal development. The fellow will take an interdisciplinary approach that utilizes methodologies ranging from molecular and single cell transcriptomic analyses to cell biological and in vivo interrogations to tease out novel mechanisms involved in cellular diversification in the forebrain. Candidates must have at minimum 2 years of postdoctoral experience in Neuroscience or Developmental Biology research. The successful applicant will be provided with the opportunity to conduct and manage all aspects of his/her own research while contributing to the intellectual aspects of the project. This position is intended for the scholar to develop his/her own independent line of research over the project period while gaining sufficient experience to establish independence. Opportunities for developing and submitting grant applications for the independent work will be provided in close guidance by Dr. Ghashghaei. Competitive salary and benefits will be provided. Please submit a single PDF containing a letter of interest indicating past experiences that qualify the candidate, short and long term goals, why the candidate is interested in joining the Ghashghaei lab, resume including publications, and list of three references to


The laboratory of Troy Ghashghaei is interested in understanding how the brain develops, how it ages, and how during disease or injury these two processes are disturbed. The research projects employ sophisticated and highly interdisciplinary experimental approaches (spanning along a molecular-cellular-tissue-behavior axis) to address fundamental neurobiology questions using the mouse as the model organism. The experimental efforts in the Ghashghaei lab have evolved into three major areas of research: 1. Regulation of developmental transitions in the developing forebrain; The role of ependymal cells in regulation of homeostasis in the forebrain; and 3. Behavioral role of neuronal circuits established during distinct developmental windows.
