A Postdoctoral Scholar position with a focus on applying developmental neuroscience and genomic techniques to novel induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) models of key autism risk genes is immediately available in the laboratory of Dr. Brian J. O’Roak in the Department of Molecular and Medical Genetics at Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU), Portland OR. Previous experiences with iPSCs, 2D neuronal differentiation, and/or 3D brain organoid (spheroid), and single-cell -omics are strongly preferred.
Highlights of Dr. O’Roak’s past research successes include: pioneering trio-based exome sequencing in simplex autism and developing new technologies for rapid and economical targeted resequencing. We are building on this experience with a strong and diverse research group focused on developing and implementing cutting-edge methods and technologies for discovery and replication, molecular diagnosis, functional dissection of pathways, and targeted therapeutics for neurodevelopmental and related disorders. This work has the potential to dramatically improve the lives of individuals affected with these currently untreatable disorders through early intervention and biologically based personal therapies.
Salary for this position aligns with the NIH Scale.
Interested candidates should email a cover letter, CV, and contact information for three references to: email@example.com
