A postdoctoral position is available in Dr. Janghoo Lim’s lab in the Departments of Genetics and of Neuroscience at Yale University School of Medicine. We are seeking applicants interested in joining a dynamic and successful team that provides opportunity for individual development as well as collaboration. The main focus of the lab is to determine the molecular basis of cellular pathology in neurodegenerative diseases. In particular, the successful candidate will study the pathogenesis of various neurodegenerative diseases, including polyglutamine diseases, frontotemporal lobar degeneration, ALS, and Alzheimer’s disease. We employ a range of techniques and model systems, including molecular/cell biology, biochemistry, and genetics and genomics using cell culture (including patient-derived iPSCs), Drosophila and mouse models.
The applicant should have experience in molecular/cell biology, biochemistry, neuroscience, and mouse genetics as well as good communication skills. Experience in bioinformatic analyses and mouse genetics would be advantageous. To apply, please send to [email protected] a brief letter of interest that includes a personal statement outlining your research interests and prior experience, an updated copy of your CV, and contact information for 3 references.
