Description of the position:
Our research focuses on delineating molecular mechanisms that regulate neural stem cell reprograming and differentiation, with the ultimate goal of defining ways to recruit the stem cells that are resident in the brains or are derived from non-neuronal cells, and to thereby potentially promote neural repair. We are currently using stroke, Alzheimer’s disease, multiple sclerosis and autism as brain disease models to explore underlying molecular mechanisms. A variety of molecular, cellular, biochemical and behavioral techniques are used in the laboratory, including transgenic mouse models, in vivo neurodegenerative disease model, primary cell culture, co-IP and ChIP, and RNA-seq approaches and etc.
- Experience in Molecular Biology (cloning, mutagenesis, PCR), Cell Biology (cell line or primary cell culture, immunohistochemistry and immunocytochemistry) or in vivo animal model study.
- Excellence at the academic level and in research
- Excellent written and oral communication skills
Deadline: Until the position is filled.
