Postdoctoral Research Opportunities

Cell & Developmental Biology and Neuroscience


Chromatin Remodeling During Liver Development

A postdoctoral position is available to study the mechanisms by which chromatin is unfolded and remodeled during gene regulation in the developing and adult liver.  Specific research projects focus on how the initial “pioneer” chromatin binding transcription factor FoxO1 cooperates with other liver-enriched transcription factors to dictate gene regulatory events crucial to hepatocyte differentiation and function through chromatin remodeling.  Additional information about current research in the laboratory and a list of recent publications are available at www.mcw.edu/cellbiology/lisacirillophd.htm.

We are looking for an enthusiastic, interactive, well-organized person with a PhD. and a strong background in Developmental and Cell Biology, Molecular Biology, and Biochemistry.  Previous experience in the culture and differentiation of induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells is helpful but not essential.  Interested individuals should mail, email or fax their CV, a description of their research interests, and the names of three references to:

Mammalian Embryonic Development

A postdoctoral position is available to a highly motivated and ambitious individual with a background in development or cell biology. Experience in handling mice, molecular and cell biology techniques, as well as having strong communicative skills is advantageous. The successful candidate will join an existing team of postdocs and graduate students and will choose from a variety of projects that address the molecular underpinnings of mammalian embryonic development. In addition, we are initiating studies with human embryonic stem cells and individuals with experience in ES cell manipulation should consider applying. The successful candidate will receive training in advanced transgenic and molecular genetic procedures and will be given the opportunity to develop independent research projects. Individuals who intend to follow a career in academic science are especially encouraged to apply.

Send or fax CV, references, and description of research ideas and interests to Stephen A. Duncan, D Phil at the address or FAX below.

Synaptic Plasticity

A postdoctoral position is available for an enthusiastic, hard-working individual to develop innovative research programs in the area of synaptic plasticity. The successful candidate will carry out pharmacological and structural-functional studies on recombinant receptors expressed in organotypic hippocampal cultures or in vivo. The laboratory has a strong multidisciplinary vocation. State-of-the-art electrophysiology and imaging technologies will be combined with molecular biology approaches in order to understand how individual molecules contribute to neuronal function.

Applicants should have a good background on molecular biology and/or electrophysiology. Experience in cellular biology techniques and animal handling are also desirable, but extensive training will be provided.
