Closing Date: 15 March 2021
The Division of Developmental Biology and Neuroscience along with Pediatric Neurosurgery at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital (#3 children’s hospital in USA) have openings in Dr Tim Vogel’s lab for postdoctoral Research Fellows to study neural stem cells, glial progenitors, and developmental neuroscience, focusing on cilia and cell signaling in murine models. We have a large group of developmental neuroscientists that work with our laboratory at one of the top children’s hospitals in the USA.
The major goals of our research are to understand neural stem cell differentiation and ciliary signaling mechanisms that lead to a common neural developmental condition seen in humans (For details see Nature Medicine 18, 1797–1804 (2012)). Our lab employs a number of ciliopathy mouse genetic models with in vivo and in vitro systems to study the genesis of hydrocephalus. These include novel in vivo cilia subcellular imaging techniques, molecular /cellular neurobiology, protein biochemistry, genetic, and pharmacological methods.
Our lab has a strong interest in translational neuroscience research and is focused on developing novel medical therapies in our cilia models.

We will be attending the annual SFN meeting to discuss the position with applicants. Schedule a time to meet with members of our lab.

Please send a brief statement of scientific/research interests, your curriculum vitae, and a list of 3 references.
Highly motivated postdoctoral candidates with experience in neuroscience, genetics, developmental biology, molecular/cellular biology, regenerative biology, or biochemistry are encouraged to apply. A strong background in biochemical, cellular, neuroscience, genetic, or developmental biology in mouse models is preferred.
