美国芝加哥大学博士后职位

A postdoctoral position is available in the NIH-funded laboratory of Dr. Christopher Gomez to study the physiology and genetics of bicistronic calcium channel genes. Dr. Gomez has performed pioneering work in the field of voltage-gated calcium channels and their role in disorders such as spinocerebellar ataxia, episodic ataxia and migraine. The project is based on recent findings of the role of newly discovered transcription factor proteins encoded by bicistronic calcium channel genes in the pathogenesis of a broad set of neurodevelopmental, neurodegenerative and episodic neurological disorders. The goal of the position is to use predominantly cell biological approaches to investigate the physiology, genetics and regulation of these novel transcription factors, to explore their disregulation in these disorders and develop therapeutic approaches to restore regulation.

Successful candidates should be highly motivated and have a recent Ph.D. degree with a strong background in cellular neurobiology, stem cells, molecular biology. At least one first author publication in an excellent journal is a requirement. Experience in working with bioinformatics and protein and RNA methods is desired.

​Motivated candidates should submit a curriculum vitae and a statement of research goals to Dr. Christopher Gomez at cgomez@neurology.bsd.uchicago.edu.
