A postdoc position is immediately available in the laboratory of Dr. Xin Qi in the Department of Physiology & Biophysics at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine. The lab focuses on mitochondrial pathology in neurodegenerative diseases. We use a combination of in vitro cell culture, in vivo transgenic animal models and patient-derived neurons to study the mechanisms by which mitochondrial impairment contributes to neurodegeneration. Another research focus of the lab is the development of therapeutics that enhance mitochondrial function, for the treatment of human diseases.
The successful applicant will participate in NIH-funded projects on elucidating the molecular basis of mitochondrial quality control with our novel transgenic mouse models of neurodegenerative diseases. Interested individuals should send a cover letter, CV, and the names/phone numbers of three people who could provide letters of reference by email to [email protected]. Please visit our lab website at https://xinqilab.com/ for additional information.
