A Postdoctoral position is microglia biology and nueuroimmunology is available in the lab of Dr. Melanie Samuel at Baylor College of Medicine.

The mission of our group is to discover brain cell interface molecules to enable circuit repair. To achieve this mission, we leverage integrative cellular and molecular neuroscience technologies to uncover molecules that tune neural outcomes.  We particularly focus on understanding how neurons communicate with microglia to alter their state, function, and impact on circuit organizaiton.

For this position, we seek a postdoc who will work to discover how neurons and microglia interact to drive neural disease outcomes in mouse models. The candidate will learn and apply cutting edge tools including proteomics, transcriptomics, circuit mapping, 2P imaging, and nanoscopic imaging to understand how disruptions in neural-microglia signaling may contribute the disease.  We are a dynamic group that offers an engaging work environment.

As a member of the lab you would direct your own research project. This includes designing research experiments, evaluating and analyzing data, developing and validating new protocols, reading and evaluating the literature, writing papers, and contributing to grant writing.
