Postdoctoral position in Neural Development and Psychiatric Disorders at the Stem Cell and Cancer Research Institute – McMaster University
A postdoctoral fellow position is available in Brain Development and Psychiatric Disorders in the laboratory of Dr. Karun Singh, at the Stem Cell and Cancer Research Institute at McMaster University. We are searching for a highly motivated individual to join our team to study how Autism Spectrum Disorder risk genes disrupt neural development using mouse and human cellular reprogramming (iPS cells). This individual must have a strong background in neuroscience, primary cell culture and mouse models. Electrophysiology experience is not required but an asset.
The SCC-RI is a multi-disciplinary stem cell institute that has recently expanded to study neural stem cells in brain development and disease. For more information, please see our website (http://sccri.mcmaster.ca/singh_karun.html).
Interested applicants should send a cover letter (statement of interest), CV (including publications), and the names of 2 references to firstname.lastname@example.org.
