Postdoctoral position at Yale
The Grutzendler lab at Yale is looking for outstanding and highly motivated postdoctoral fellows to study mechanisms of neurodegeneration and cellular and molecular aspects of neuronal and glial biology. In addition, we have projects aimed at drug and imaging probe discovery. for neurological disorders. Our lab uses a variety of techniques including two-photon microscopy to longitudinally image individual neurons, glial cells (microglia, astrocytes, pericytes) and blood vessels over periods of up to months. We have also developed a methodology for in vivo label free microscopy of myelin to study axonal myelination. This imaging-centric approach is combined with the use of viral vectors, in utero electroporation, optical sensors of cellular physiology, optogenetics, chemogenetics and genome editing techniques..
- A recent Ph.D. in neuroscience, cell/molecular biology or organic chemistry
