The Yano lab at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis and the Hope Center of Neurological Disorders has an immediate opening (beginning Spring/Summer 2019) for a highly motivated postdoctoral candidate to investigate the molecular mechanisms that drive neuronal dysfunction and death in Huntington’s disease, a fatal neurodegenerative disease. Our ultimate research goal is to identify the key disease mediator(s), which can be therapeutically targeted. We utilize in vitro primary neuron and in vivo mouse models of the disease and an array of molecular biology, biochemistry and cell biology approaches. Candidates with significant experience in signal transduction, epigenetic gene regulation, cell culture, and mouse handling/preclinical animal experiments are strongly preferred. For more information, please see Yano lab website: http://www.neurosurgery.wustl.edu/research/laboratories/yano-lab-153
Eligibility: Ph.D. or M.D./Ph.D. with experience in neuroscience/neurodegenerative disease research, molecular biology, biochemistry, cell biology, cell signaling techniques, and animal studies.
Ability to work independently and in a highly collaborative, multidisciplinary environment with strong communication and interpersonal skills is required.
Interested candidates with relevant qualifications should email curriculum vitae, including a summary of their research, list of publications, and contact information for three recent references, to Hiroko Yano, PhD, at email@example.com
