Postdoctoral Positions in Mechanisms Underlying Brain Development and Neurodevelopmental Disorders-Neuroscience Center, UNC, Chapel Hill
Anton lab in the Neuroscience Center at the University of North Carolina School of Medicine (https://www.antonlab.org) is seeking highly motivated post doctoral fellows interested in investigating the molecular mechanisms of cerebral cortical development and neurodevelopmental disorders (see Neuron 2019 July 2; 103, 1-17.
doi:10.1016/j.neuron.2019.05.049; Developmental Cell 2019 Dec 16; 51(6):759-774.e5. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.devcel.2019.11.005). Opportunities are available to investigate the molecular mechanisms of progenitor and neuronal development in mammalian brain and in neurodevelopmental disorders using advanced methods, including circuit mapping, clarity, chemogenetic and optogenetic manipulation of signaling pathways, CRISPR-Cas9 based genome editing, brain organoids, and single cell sequencing. The lab provides an exceptionally supportive environment designed to facilitate career growth and path to independence. Ambitious, driven candidates with a recent PhD (and/or MD) in molecular biology, cell biology, genetics, neuroscience, or related field with a solid thesis publication record are encouraged to apply. Please send CV and a brief cover letter of interest to Dr. E. S. Anton via e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org. University of North Carolina is an EEO/AA employer and encourages applications from minorities and women.
