A Postdoctoral Research Fellow position is available in Dr. Aparna Lakkaraju’s laboratory at the University of California, San Francisco. Our research group investigates mechanisms that drive irreversible vision loss in inherited and age-related macular degenerations to identify drug targets and potential therapies. This is an NIH funded position to evaluate therapeutic strategies to prevent inflammation and metabolic reprogramming in the retina in mouse models of disease. We use advanced live imaging, genetic models, chemical screens, cell and molecular biology, and bioinformatics approaches.
We are seeking a highly motivated, creative, and collaborative scientist. Prior experience with cell culture, mouse models, molecular biology, microscopy, and bioinformatics is strongly desired. Requirements include a recent PhD, MD, orMD/PhD degree, a solid publication record, strong written/verbal English communication skills, strong organizational skills, and the ability to work independently. UCSF stipend policy for postdoctoral associates follows the current NIH/NRSA pay scale and an additional housing allowance is provided by the department.
The highly collaborative and stimulating environment at UCSF provides an excellent postdoctoral training experience. The vision science group in the UCSF Department of Ophthalmology is very interactive and includes a formal postdoc training program that is focused on mentorship, networking, and career development. More information about the lab and our research interests can be found at https://ophthalmology.ucsf.edu/lakkarajulab/
To apply, please submit your CV, a personal statement outlining your research accomplishments and career goals, and the contact information of three references (including email addresses and phone numbers) to Dr. Aparna Lakkaraju at Aparna.Lakkaraju@ucsf.edu
