The Desplats Lab at  UCSD Department of Neurosciences, is searching for a highly motivated, goal-driven scientific writer, who will support the content creation and dissemination of scientific research under the direction of the principal investigator and senior researchers in the team. The candidate will directly contribute to writing, editing, proofreading, and reviewing scientific manuscripts, grant applications, and reports. The appointee will also create and format content for scientific conferences and presentations as well as maintain a social media presence for the lab. Additionally, this person will have a partial effort dedicated to basic administrative functions, including supplies ordering and maintaining safety/regulatory approvals.



Research in our lab is aimed at elucidating the dynamic mechanisms of DNA methylation, which might contribute to onset and progression of the most prevalent neurodegenerative diseases of the elderly, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s. At the center of our work is a strong interest in translational neuroscience, therefore we combine aspects of cellular physiology and molecular neuroscience, integrating the analysis of human postmortem brain samples, transgenic animals and cellular models to address mechanistic questions, while identifying therapeutic targets and providing novel diagnostic tools.
