Postdoctoral Scholar for Epigenomic Mechanisms of Memory Disruption by Early-life Seizures University of California-Irvine, School of Medicine - Anatomy & Neurobiology United States

Postdoctoral Scholar for Epigenomic Mechanisms of Memory Disruption by Early-life Seizures

 

  • School of Medicine - Anatomy & Neurobiology

 

RECRUITMENT PERIOD

Open February 14th, 2019 through June 30th, 2019
 

DESCRIPTION

A postdoctoral position is offered in a vibrant Neuroscience laboratory to probe the transcriptional and epigenetic mechanisms initiated by early-life seizures that differentially program newborn and mature hippocampal dentate gyrus granule cells and pyramidal neurons. These changes cause significant disruption of hippocampus-dependent memory processes associated with Epilepsy, with major clinical importance.

 

The NIH-funded project will employ innovative methodologies to examine, at single cell resolution, the role of specific transcription factors in functional and structural hippocampal derangements that promote memory problems. ChIP-seq, single-cell RNA-seq and subsequent interventional approaches will be employed. Additional methods used in the lab include DREADD technology, live 2-photon imaging, as well as DTI imaging and behavioral testing.

 

(See: Patterson et al., J Neurosci, 2017;, McClelland et al., eLife 2014; Singh-Taylor et al., Molec Psych 2018; Bolton et al., Biol Psych 2018; Dube et al., Trends Neurosci, 2007).

 

The culturally diverse and welcoming laboratory is located on the UC Irvine campus, a rich community of Molecular and Neuroscience research within Southern California.

 

Candidates should have a recent PhD degree and experience in Molecular Biology, and must be highly motivated. Experience in Bioinformatics and Neuroscience is desirable.
