Postdoctoral Scientist : San Antonio, TX, United States
We are searching for a highly motivated Postdoctoral Scientist with strong ambition and commitment to a productive environment in a high achieving academic environment. Our laboratory is pioneering neural stem cell isolation, perpetuation and differentiation into specific neural lineages for basic biology, drug discovery and stem cell-based therapy for neurological disorders. We have discovered technologies for neural stem cell derivation and differentiation into dopaminergic neurons with application in Parkinson’s disease. We also work with rodent and non-human primate models of Parkinson’s disease, stroke and traumatic brain injury. The Southwest National Primate Research Center (SNPRC), located at Texas Biomedical Research Institute, San Antonio, TX, is one of the top centers in the world in primate research and we have collaborative programs with the University of Texas Health Science Center, San Antonio and the University of Texas at San Antonio, enabling students and postdocs to participate in journal clubs, seminars and internal funding opportunities. We also have industry partnerships to develop neural stem cell products for treating neurological disorders. Thus, the successful candidate will have unique exposure to various aspects of stem cell biology and translational research and gain highly desirable experience. The postdoc scientist will report to Dr. Marcel Daadi.
Candidates must possess a Ph.D. in neurosciences, molecular neurobiology or developmental neurobiology to investigate 1) Electrophysiology, optogenetics and cell imaging OR 2) Reprogramming, induced-Pluripotent Stem Cells, genome-editing, disease modeling, engineering the expression of disease causing mutations, epigenetic and transcriptional regulation of gene expression, functional analysis and implementing next generation sequencing.
