Lerner Research Institute, Cleveland Clinics
The research group of Rodrigo Lopez Gonzalez in the Department of Neurosciences at the Lerner Research Institute is looking for a talented and highly motivated postdoctoral fellow to participate in projects aiming to gain insight into the cellular and molecular pathogenic mechanisms of frontotemporal dementia and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis using human iPSCs derived neurons and brain organoids as experimental models. Our current research is built on papers from Lopez-Gonzalez et al., Neuron 2016; Yin et al., Cell Reports 2017 and Lopez Gonzalez et al., PNAS 2019.
We are looking for a candidate with a doctorate degree in the field of neurosciences, biomedical sciences, or related fields with strong background in human iPSCs, neuronal and brain organoid differentiation. Experience in epigenetics, molecular biology, RNA-seq, ChIP-seq, and ATAC-seq is preferred. The successful candidate is expected to have good communication skills, be a team player, and have exceptional organizational skills and critical thinking aptitudes.
To apply please send a CV, cover letter with a brief description of current and future research interests, publications, and names and contact details from three references to Dr. Lopez Gonzalez at firstname.lastname@example.org
