The laboratory of Mi Hyeon Jang has an immediate opening for two post-doctoral fellows at the Mayo Clinic Rochester Campus, Minnesota. The projects are currently focused on elucidating the mechanisms underlying two regenerative processes (neurogenesis and oligodendrogenesis) in relation to learning and memory function in the contexts of brain aging as well as neurological conditions that accelerate aging process. Primary techniques used in the lab include confocal imaging, memory and mood related behaviors, the development of novel transgenic mouse lines, immuohistochemistry, molecular biology, optogenetics and chemogenetics. We seek highly motivated and energetic candidates with strong laboratory experiences and skills. Ideal skill set would include animal behaviors, stereotaxic viral surgery, immunohistology, confocal imaging, and molecular biology. Experience in neural stem cell and/or glial biology is a plus.
