POSTDOCTORAL SCHOLAR POSITION
UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA, SAN DIEGO
LA JOLLA, CA
The Department of Pediatrics (www.pediatrics.ucsd.edu) and the Haddad Lab at the University of California, San Diego are committed to academic excellence and are seeking a postdoctoral scholar. Our lab has been very productive and has a number of ongoing funded projects. Our lab has been interested in the interaction between the environment and genetics/genomics.
The postdoctoral scholar position is focused on studying the cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying neurodevelopmental impairment following opioids/hypoxia exposure. These studies will include human stem cell derived neural cell models and mouse models and will use a wide range of techniques (electrophysiology, imaging, biochemistry, cell biology, molecular biology, RNA-seq, data mining, etc.).
We encourage the application from individuals with a strong background in molecular and cellular neuroscience and electrophysiology. Prior work experience in human induced pluripotent stem cells and/or brain organoids culture is desirable. Successful applicants should be highly self-motivated, work well in a collaborative team environment, and must be able to manage multiple research projects.
Salary is commensurate with qualifications and based on University of California pay scales.
