University of Calgary ポスドク募集

筆者のトロント留学時(Sickkids:Freda Miller & David Kaplan Lab)の元同僚がカナダ・カルガリー大学で独立し新たにポスドク(or PhD student)を募集中です。Guangは中国出身ですがカナダに10年以上在住しており、英語も非常に流暢で聡明な研究者です。
詳細は以下に記したjob offerを参照下さい。

Welcome to Join the Yang Laboratory at the University of Calgary, Canada
The laboratory of Dr. Guang Yang is currently seeking outstanding young scientists to join our research group as GRADUATE STUDENTS or POSTDOCTORAL FELLOWS. The research in the Yang lab focuses on neural stem cells and brain development. Our current research combines molecular genetics, live imaging and genome-wide approaches to understand how neural stem cells give rise to the correct numbers and types of neurons in the mammalian brain.
Using the mouse cortex as the model system, we hope to dissect the molecular mechanisms that control neural stem cell maintenance and neuronal fate specification in the developing brain. The fundamental knowledge gained from this work will lead to a better understanding of how perturbations relevant to neurodevelopmental disorders, such as autism spectrum disorders and schizophrenia, influence brain development and function.
The current research efforts in our laboratory are:
1) To dissect the mechanisms of translational control in neural stem cell maintenance and differentiation.
2) To understand how neural stem cells precisely generate diverse subtypes of excitatory neurons in the cortex during development.
3) To understand how risk factors for neurodevelopmental disorders interact to shape the development of the embryonic brain, and, ultimately, the structure and function of the mature brain.
The projects in our research group will involve utilizing various molecular, cellular, biochemical and imaging tools to study neural stem cell biology and brain development. Specifically, individuals will participate in studies that include, but are not limited to, dissecting translational repression complexes in neural stem cells and analyzing the role of RNA-binding proteins in brain development. Another potential avenue of research involves studying the mechanisms that mediate the effects of genetic and/or environmental risk factors for cognitive disorders.
For the postdoctoral position, a PhD degree in cell biology, molecular biology, developmental biology, neurobiology, systems biology or a related field is preferred. Prior experience with transgenic mouse models, early embryo manipulation, stem cells, mouse development, and/or bioinformatics, and first author publications in these fields would be highly desirable. Must be self‐motivated, highly independent, and have excellent communication, written and interpersonal skills. Position available immediately, but starting date is negotiable.
Our laboratory (www.yanglaboratory.com) is based at the Departments of Medical Genetics, and Biochemistry & Molecular Biology at the University of Calgary, an internationally recognized research university in Canada and national research leader in brain and mental health. Situated near the Rocky Mountains, Banff National Park, and Lake Louise, Calgary has great quality of life and outstanding recreational activities.
Interested candidates should please submit their detailed CV with the names and contact information for three references in one PDF file to Dr. Guang Yang (guang.yang2@ucalgary.ca).
