An NIH-funded post-doctoral fellowship position is immediately available, jointly supervised by Dr. Luis de la Torre Ubieta (@LTULab) and Dr. Michael Gandal (@mikejg84) in the David Geffen School of Medicine and the Semel Institute for Neuroscience and Human Behavior at UCLA. We are looking for a motivated post-doctoral fellow interested in working at the interface of experimental stem cell biology and psychiatric genomics, to investigate the mechanisms of disease genetics through neural stem cell modeling of human brain development.
Experience with cell culture and neural stem cell models, functional genomics assays (e.g., scRNA-seq, ATAC-seq), and/or CRISPR/Cas9 genome engineering are preferred. All backgrounds will be considered. The appointed researcher will be embedded within a highly interdisciplinary team of neural stem cell and developmental biologists, computational biologists, bioinformaticians, statistical geneticists, and clinicians. The successful candidate will help develop and implement high-throughput genome engineering and genomic assays in human neural progenitor cell lines. Training opportunities and mentorship in wet-lab stem cell modeling and dry-lab genomics techniques will be uniquely provided by the joint PIs. The exact topic is flexible within scope, and we expect the incumbent to develop a successful independent research program through this work.
Please email a cover letter, CV, and 3 references to Luis de la Torre Ubieta (LDeLaTorreUbieta [at]mednet.ucla.edu) and Michael Gandal (mgandal [at] mednet.ucla.edu).
UCLA is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer.
