Postdoctoral position available in the Shcheglovitov Lab,
University of Utah
We are looking for a postdoc to study the properties of excitatory synapses in human stem cell-derived neurons and organoids. The main goal is to characterize SHANK3-binding partners in human synapses using biochemical and electrophysiological assays and to identify those that are lost or dysregulated by SHANK3 deficiency in association with autism and intellectual disability. We are particularly interested in receiving applications from creative and ambitious researchers with substantial experience in protein-protein interaction biochemistry or slice patch-clamp electrophysiology. Check the following links and references to learn more about the Shcheglovitov lab in the Department of Neurobiology at the University of Utah, Salt Lake City, Utah and our research.
