Postdoc position - ER stress and neurodegeneration

A postdoctoral position is available immediately, funded by an NIH grant, to study how signaling pathways that sense endoplasmic reticulum stress are integrated during sensory neuronal development and neurodegeneration. This is a joint project between the Gidalevitz lab at Drexel University and the Argon lab at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. The project uses cell biological, genetic, and imaging approaches in both the C. elegans and mammalian cell culture models; the postdoctoral fellow would also be able to participate in a collaborative study of human genetic variation in these stress pathways and of its role in neurodegeneration.

Energetic applicants with strong experimental background in biochemistry, molecular and cellular biology, and/or genetics are encouraged to apply. Experience with primary neuronal cultures is a plus. Interested candidates should email and with a personal statement, a recent resume and names of potential references.

We are committed to fostering an inclusive environment and strongly encourage qualified individuals from historically under-represented groups to apply.
