Multi-disciplinary research in the Egervari Lab focuses on the emerging area of metabolic-epigenetic interactions in the brain, particularly in the context of substance use disorders and neurodegeneration. We utilize cutting-edge proteomic, metabolomic and genomic approaches, including on the single cell level, to understand how metabolites influence chromatin and gene expression in the brain. Further, we apply small animal models and in vitro mechanistic studies to query the role of these pathways in disease and to identify novel therapeutic targets.
We are now seeking a highly motivated postdoctoral candidate with previous training in any area of molecular biology, neuroscience, proteomics or genomics. We offer an excellent training environment in the lab and at WashU. This position will also provide outstanding opportunities to develop independent research projects at the intersection of translational neuroscience, epigenetics, and metabolism.
