Two postdoc positions are immediately available in the laboratory of Dr. Xin Qi in the Department of Physiology & Biophysics at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine.
The lab focuses on mitochondrial pathology in neurodegenerative diseases including Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Huntington’s disease, and ALS. We use a combination of in vitro cell culture, in vivo transgenic animal models, and patient-derived neurons to study the mechanisms by which mitochondrial impairment contributes to neurodegeneration. Another research focus of the lab is the development of therapeutics that enhance mitochondrial function, for the treatment of human diseases. We have been using the rationally designed peptide inhibitors of protein-protein interactions and high throughput screening to identify mitochondrial functional enhancers as therapeutic options.
The successful applicant will participate in NIH-funded projects on elucidating the molecular basis of mitochondrial damage and metabolic dysregulation in neurodegenerative diseases. The applicants must have a Ph.D. and/or MD degree in neuroscience, molecular biology, cell biology, pharmacology, or related field. Candidates with experience in neurodegenerative diseases and transgenic mouse models are highly desired.
Interested individuals should send a cover letter, CV, and the names/phone numbers of three people who could provide letters of reference by email to Xin Qi, PhD, firstname.lastname@example.org. Please visit our lab website at https://www.xinqi-lab.com for additional information.
