The Hargus Lab at the Department of Pathology and Cell Biology at Columbia University, New York, USA, is looking for a highly motivated and driven postdoctoral research scientist with a strong interest in stem cell biology, neural development, and neurodegenerative diseases. We use differentiated human induced pluripotent stem cells to identify mechanisms leading to neuronal degeneration in frontotemporal dementia and Parkinson’s disease. This research project will include application of in vitro disease modeling techniques such as neuron-microglia co-cultures and single-cell RNA sequencing as well as transplantation of differentiated stem cells into mice. The position is available full-time. Career development including attendance at conferences is strongly supported. Successful applicants preferably have experience in stem cell culture and differentiation.
