Lieber Institute for Brain Development at Johns Hopkins Bioscience Park Research positions
Multiple research positions are available within the recently established Erwin lab at the Lieber Institute for Brain Development to study how genes and the environment interact to bias neurodevelopment towards disease or resilience. We are seeking highly motivated individuals including postdoctoral fellows, staff scientist and students. The applicant would be working with a team of researchers on projects using human induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) models, brain tissue and single cell genomics to understand the origin of neurological disorders. Individuals with hIPS, (epi)genomics, genetics, developmental neuroscience or computational experience would be particularly well suited. For further information see: erwinlab.org
The Lieber Institute for Brain Development (LIBD) is located in the new Johns Hopkins Bioscience Park in Baltimore, MD. LIBD was conceived from the realization that a new approach is needed to fully exploit the unprecedented opportunities to accomplish the critical goal of helping affected individuals and their families. The LIBD aims to transform the research landscape in two ways: by providing new tools for scientific discovery and by developing new collaborative approaches to achieve our ambitious mission. The mission of the Lieber Institute for Brain Development is to translate the understanding of basic genetic and molecular mechanisms of schizophrenia and related developmental brain disorders into clinical advances that change the lives of affected individuals.
