The Gabel lab is actively seeking a talented post-doctoral researcher with an interest in neuronal damage and regeneration. The lab is expanding its study of how post-translational modifications can modulate cellular metabolism to greatly enhance neuronal regeneration (Taub et al. “O-GlcNAc Signaling Orchestrates the Regenerative Response to Neuronal Injury in Caenorhabditis elegans”, Cell Reports, 2018). Applicants should have completed their Ph.D. Experience in C. elegans genetics, molecular biology as well as neuron culture are advantageous, as is expertise/interests in fluorescence microscopy. The position will be supported by a Massachusetts Spinal Cord Injury Research Award.
The Gabel lab has active research programs in C. elegans neuronal regeneration and functional neuronal imaging. It has particular expertise in neurophotonics including in vivo high-resolution laser ablation and optogenetics as well as subcellular and multicellular neuronal imaging. It is therefor an excellent environment for someone looking to gain experience in microscopy and biophotonics. The lab is housed within the Dept. of Physiology and Biophysics at Boston University School of Medicine in the heart of Boston, MA.
