Postdoc Positions in Molecular Mechanisms of Parkinson’s disease
University of Connecticut School of Medicine
Two postdoc positions are available immediately in the Laboratory of Dr. Yulan Xiong at the Department of Neuroscience, University of Connecticut School of Medicine (UConn Health). The research positions will be working on the molecular pathophysiology of Parkinson’s disease projects. Our lab uses various model systems including yeast, Drosophila, mice, primary and human neuronal cultures. The general approach in our lab is to use a powerful combination of genetics, molecular biology, viral approaches and behavioral analysis to decipher the molecular mechanisms underlying neurodegenerative diseases in humans. Our research is currently supported by NIH R01, private foundations and UConn Health. Recent work from our lab have been published/accepted at The EMBO Journal, Science Signaling, Cell Reports, PNAS etc.
* In vitro molecular and cellular study of gene function in Parkinson’s disease: dissect protein function and cellular pathways
* In vivo Parkinson disease modeling: develop fly, mouse and human dopamine neuronal models
Postdoctoral fellows receive competitive salaries and benefits according to NIH standard.
Interested applicants please submit an application to Dr. Xiong at email@example.com along with a cover letter, CV and contact information for three professional references.
