The Department of Neurology, Epilepsy Division at the University of Maryland School of Medicine is seeking a full-time, highly qualified postdoctoral fellow to perform research in the laboratory of Peter B. Crino, MD, PhD, Professor and Chairman, Department of Neurology.
The Crino lab focuses on the molecular and cellular mechanisms causing malformations of brain development. Specifically, we are interested in new gene discovery, establishing in vitro and vivo models, and designing new approaches for possible therapies. The studies will address mechanisms of epilepsy and autism. The emphasis of the lab is on the mechanistic target of rapamycin (mTOR) pathway and its role in development of the cerebral cortex. We are particularly interested in applicants with experience in CRISPR design, mouse models systems, cell signaling assays such as Western and kinase assays, and genomic analysis of human brain tissue specimens.
Interested individuals should submit a detailed CV, a brief statement including a research plan, interests and skills, the names of three references and a short description of their doctoral training and future research goals to:
Marianna Baybis, MS, Laboratory Manager, Crino Lab, Department of Neurology, Epilepsy Division, 20 Penn Street, HSF II, S003C, Baltimore, MD 21201 or email@example.com.
The University of Maryland, Baltimore is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer. Minorities, women, individuals with disabilities and protected veterans are encouraged to apply.
