Cenna Biosciences Inc, located in La Jolla CA, is seeking an outstanding neuroscientist to develop induced pluripotent stem (iPS)-derived neuronal models to study the cellular and molecular phenotypes associated with Alzheimer’s disease. We are interested in modeling the diseases in neurons and 3D cerebral organoids derived from patients’ own iPSCs.
Qualifications: Ph.D. with 0-1 year of postdoctoral research experience in neuroscience or a related field. In-depth knowledge and experience with human iPS cells including their generation, maintenance, and differentiation into neuronal-like cells is required. Experience in methods of determining neuronal function, including calcium imaging, electrophysiological techniques and/or image-based morphological analysis, is required.
Expertise in standard Molecular Biology techniques including immunostaining, ELISA, quantitative real-time PCR etc. is required. Experience in the isolation and purification of exosomes is an asset.
Excellent verbal and written communication skills are a must.
