Postdoc position available in developmental neurobiology labs in Washington, DC

Torii and Hashimoto-Torii labs at Children’s National Health System in Washington, DC are seeking a highly motivated postdoc who has a strong background in neurobiology and/or in vivo imaging. The postdoc will have a primary position in either of the two labs, but is expected to join the collaborative team across the labs.

The Torii lab focuses on understanding how various processes such as cell migration/positioning and neural circuit formation/refinement are orchestrated during brain development, and how the defects in these processes cause functional abnormalities in neurodevelopmental and neurological disorders such as autism and epilepsy. The Hashimoto-Torii lab seeks to understand how adverse prenatal environment causes reprogramming of normal fetal brain development and consequently increase the incidence of childhood disorders including schizophrenia and Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders. Both laboratories also aim at translating the findings from these studies into development of novel drugs and therapeutic methods. To achieve these goals, we use cutting-edge bioengineering and bioinformatics technologies including in vivo gene manipulation, reporter transgenic mice, induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells, 3D microfabrication, and single-cell RNA sequencing.
