Postdoctoral position in the functional analysis of autism risk genes

Posted by on June 12th, 2018

An NIH-funded post-doctoral position is available in the Hoffman Lab at Yale University School of Medicine.   Our lab studies the function of genes involved in autism spectrum disorders at the cellular, molecular, and circuit levels. To do this, we use zebrafish as a model system due to their transparent larvae and amenability to high-throughput[…]

Postdoctoral position – Yale University

A Postdoctoral Research Associate position is available in the Hoffman Lab at Yale University (www.hoffmanlab.net). We use zebrafish as a translational tool to investigate the function of genes that are strongly associated with autism spectrum disorders (Hoffman et al. 2016 Neuron). Specifically, we use CRISPR-generated zebrafish mutants to study how disruption of autism risk genes affects the developing brain[…]

Research Associate 1 – Yale University

General Purpose:  Function as a Lab Manager overseeing a Molecular Biology Lab using a zebrafish model system. Research in the Hoffman Lab at Yale focuses on using zebrafish as a model system for the functional analysis of autism risk genes (www.hoffmanlab.net). Work on an independent research project, master generation of zebrafish mutants using CRISPR/Cas9 technique,[…]
