Postdoctoral Positions in Basic and Translational Neuroscience/Stem Cell Research
Location: UC Davis School of Medicine/Dept of Cell Biology and Human Anatomy/Shriners Institute of Pediatric Regenerative Medicine, Sacramento, California
Multiple positions are available in the laboratory of Dr. Wenbin Deng to study endogenous (adult) stem cells, embryonic stem (ES) cells, and induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells, and their differentiation toward neuronal and glial lineages for regenerative medicine. Candidates should have a good publication record, and experience in stem/progenitor cell biology, electrophysiology, or mitochondrial biology. Preference will be given to individuals with US citizenship or permanent residency and who would have no more than 3 years of postdoctoral experience at the start of the fellowship. Candidates will have the opportunity to obtain experience and training in stem/neural cell culture techniques and animal models of human neurological disease for testing the utility of stem cells. Excellent salary and benefits will be provided. The research is in part supported by the National Institutes of Health (NIH R01 NS059043 and R01 ES015988), National Multiple Sclerosis Society (NMSS), Roche Foundation (RoFAR), Feldstein Medical Foundation (FMF), Alternatives Research and Development Foundation (ARDF), Johns Hopkins CAAT, University of California TSR&TP, Children’s Miracle Network (CMN), and Shriners Hospitals for Children (SHC) research grants. Please email CV and contact information of three references to Dr. Wenbin Deng (wbdeng AT ucdavis.edu).
