Post-docs: we are actively hiring a post-doc to conduct stem cell based Alzheimer’s research!

The O’Neil lab at Wesleyan University (Middletown, CT) is looking to immediately hire a full time post-doctoral fellow. This research position has up to 5 years of guaranteed funding from an NIH R01 award. The research will use Alzheimer’s patient derived iPSC brain organoids to study amyloid formation and spread. A PhD in a related field and demonstrated expertise in iPSC culturing and differentiation techniques is required.

As a post-doc in the O’Neil lab, you will be able to work independently, have ample access to mentoring and educational opportunities, and have access to all the resources of Wesleyan, UConn, and Yale. Responsibilities/experimental techniques include but are not limited to: maintenance of iPSC cultures; differentiation to neurons, glia and brain organoids; immunofluorescent cell fate characterization; amyloid/tau extraction; ELISA; Western blot; FPLC; and ultra-centrifugation.  We will be collaborating with the UConn Genomics Core to perform single cell RNA sequencing and the UConn Proteomics core for tandem mass spectrometry analysis. Familiarity with these techniques is a plus.

To apply, please email Alison your CV, a short description of your research interests, and contact information for 3 references.
