Postdoctoral position for gene therapy delivery methods to brain in rodent models of Angelman Syndrome at UC Davis, California.

A postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Dr. David J. Segal in the UC Davis Genome Center (www.genomecenter.ucdavis.edu/people/djsegal). This project will investigate innovative methods to regulate gene expression using zinc finger, TALE, or CRISPR factors in a preclinical model of Angelman Syndrome. The postdoc will examine biodistribution, efficacy, immune response and toxicity to approaches such as mesenchymal stem cell, viral vector, and protein based delivery methods. The applicant must have a Ph.D. and experience with rodent models. Preferred qualifications include expertise in gene therapy or neurologic disease. Applicants should submit a curriculum vita that includes a list of publications and description of research experience, along with contact information for three referees to: djsegal@ucdavis.edu
