The ALS Center for Cell Therapy and Regeneration Research at Johns Hopkins is seeking a postdoctoral fellow to participate in research utilizing human induced pluripotent stem cell models of neurodegenerative disease, with an emphasis on motor neuron diseases (ALS). The fellowship will use stem cell methodologies to both investigate disease pathogenesis as well as evaluate potential therapeutics. There is also a programmatic interest in the investigation of astrocyte-mediated contributions to the progression of disease in ALS with an emphasis on human iPSC-derived astrocyte biology and electrophysiology.
Preference will be given to candidates whose research is related to the pathogenesis of neurodegenerative disorders and/or stem cell biology.
Interested candidates should have a Ph.D. or M.D. degree, and a demonstrated capacity to perform creative and original research. Interested applicants should send their resumes by email to Dr. Nicholas J. Maragakis at [email protected]
