The research group of Dr. Kristen Brennand (Departments of Psychiatry and Genetics, Yale University) is seeking multiple postdoctoral scientists. The scope of currently funded projects is broad, and scientists from any discipline with training or interest in applying stem cell models to neurogenomics are welcome to apply. Our scientific philosophy is in applying innovative and scalable methods to generate and test hypotheses, towards the goal of translating genetic data into clinically actionable information.
The Brennand laboratory is focused on deciphering the genetic causes of debilitating brain diseases such as schizophrenia, autism spectrum disorder, and Alzheimer’s disease. We employ a functional genomics approach that integrates stem cell models and genome engineering to resolve the impact of patient-specific variants across cell types, genetic backgrounds, and environmental conditions. Our highly collaborative approach strives to uncover the convergence and synergy arising from the complex interplay of the many risk variants associated with brain disease. Our team science approach supports each lab member in undertaking innovative, cutting-edge, rigorous, and high-quality science. The culture of our laboratory is inclusive and supportive; the goals of trainees are centered. Dr. Brennand is committed to increasing equity, diversity, and inclusion in science. We especially encourage applications from women, minorities, and individuals with a commitment to mentoring under-represented demographics in the sciences.
Post-doctoral scientists will pursue biological follow-up of emerging genetic and genomic findings in brain disease using stem cell-based in vitro models. The successful candidate should have experience in lab-based work including induced pluripotent stem cells (human or mouse), CRISPR-engineering, genetics and genomics, MPRA, Perturb-seq, neuronal/glial differentiation, cell/synaptic imaging, molecular cell biology, and/or proteomics.
Qualified applicants should send curriculum vitae, a brief statement of research interests, and contact details for three references.
