Postdoctoral Fellow - Cortical Neurogenesis and Vascularization
Funded postdoctoral position available in the lab of Sally Temple at the Neural Stem Cell Institute (NSCI) to undertake study of cortical neurogenesis and vascularization using organoid models. This 4-year funded project seeks to define critical factors for neural organization and endothelial integration. Candidates with a PhD or equivalent, a strong interest in neurobiological research and a background in molecular biology, cell biology, and cell culture models of neurodegenerative disease are encouraged to apply. Computational biology skills will be highly valued.
This project will incorporate:
- maintenance and directed differentiation of human pluripotent stem cells
- neural organoid culture
- molecular biology and phenotypic assays
- manuscript preparation and communication of results
Founded in 2007 by Drs. Sally Temple and Jeff Stern, the Neural Stem Cell Institute is an independent research organization for successful translation of neural stem cell discoveries to therapeutics. Work out of the NSCI has produced more than 90 publications in top-tier journals, 2 awarded patents and numerous pending patent applications, launch of two independent companies and the creation of an annual stem cell meeting geared toward young investigators. The NSCI is located in the capital region of upstate NY in Rensselaer, NY. This is a vibrant scientific region with multiple research organizations, including the Wadsworth Center, Albany Medical Center, SUNY Albany, SUNY Polytechnic and Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.
