Postdoc, Glial Development and Neurodegenerative Diseases


A postdoctoral position is available in the Division of Biological Science, Neurobiology section at University of California, San Diego in the laboratory of Stacey Glasgow. The primary goal of the research in the laboratory is to study how transcriptional and chromatin mechanisms regulate glial cell development and glioma tumor biology. We utilize biochemistry, molecular and cell biology, genetics, and chromatin conformation assays to address how developmental processes are reutilized during neurogenerative disease and malignancies.


Applicants must hold a Ph.D. or equivalent degree in biology, neuroscience or related fields. Candidates should have a strong background in molecular biology, animal models, and microscopy. Additional experience with developmental biology, cancer studies, and mouse surgery is desirable. The candidate will be expected to conduct an independent research project and work as part of a team.
