Postdoctoral fellow

Multiple Postdoctoral fellow positions are available in the laboratory of Dong Yan at Duke University, NC, USA (

Our laboratory focuses on dissecting molecular mechanisms of neural circuit formation, regulation and degeneration in C. elegans. We apply classic genetic manipulation combined with live imaging and biochemical approaches to uncover key insights into neural circuit formation in young animals and neural degeneration in old animals. We currently have projects focusing on the following areas: (i) neuronal circuit formation; (ii) gap junction regulations; (iii) ageing-related neurodegeneration. The ideal candidate will have a solid background in developmental, molecular/cellular biology, genetics, or proteomics and a strong interest in neurobiology. Candidates must hold a PhD or MD or MD/PhD degree (or anticipating such a degree prior to starting the postdoc) and have prior publications.
