Postdoctoral fellowship in neural stem cell and developmental neurobiology

The Divisions of Developmental Biology and Pediatric Neurosurgery at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital (CCHMC) have an immediate opening in Dr Timothy Vogel’s lab for postdoctoral Research Fellows to study developmental neuroscience, focusing on cilia signaling in neural progenitor cells in murine models. The major goals of our research are to understand neural stem cell differentiation and ciliary signaling mechanisms that lead to common neural developmental conditions seen in humans (For details see  Nature Medicine 18, 1797–1804 (2012)). Our lab employs a number of ciliopathy mouse genetic models with in vivo and in vitro systems to study the genesis of hydrocephalus. These include novel in vivo cilia subcellular imaging techniques, molecular/cellular neurobiology, protein biochemistry, genetic, and pharmacological methods. Our lab has a strong interest in translational neuroscience research and is focused on developing novel medical therapies in our cilia models. For more information about current projects see: http://www.cincinnatichildrens.org/research/divisions/n/neurosurgery/lab...

Highly motivated postdoctoral candidates with a Ph.D. or M.D./Ph.D. in neuroscience, genetics, developmental biology, molecular/cellular biology, regenerative biology, or biochemistry are encouraged to apply. A strong background in biochemical, cellular, neuroscience, genetic, or developmental biology in mouse models is preferred.
