Postdoc position, neuronal cell biology @ yale

The Yogev lab at Yale School of Medicine ( is looking for a postdoc to perform research in neuronal cell biology. The postdoc will work closely with the PI to design and carry out experiments, using C. elegans as a model and employing techniques such as genetics, biochemistry, real-time imaging, super-resolution and image analysis. We are interested in the cytoskeleton – how it’s formed and patterned in axons and dendrites and how it affects axonal transport and synaptic maintenance. Several projects with preliminary data are available, depending on the candidate’s interest and previous experience. In particular, we have isolated several mutants that profoundly disrupt axonal microtubules, and the postdoc could use these as a starting point to get a deeper understanding of the neuronal cytoskeleton. Yale School of Medicine is a vibrant community, providing opportunities to interact and collaborate with research groups across disciplines, thereby preparing the postdoc for an independent academic career.
To apply, please send your CV and a cover letter outlining your previous research, future aspirations, and how they integrate with the lab’s interests to Please provide contact for three references.
