Postdoctoral Research Associate

Milbrandt Lab

We invite highly motivated candidates to apply for positions as postdoctoral fellows in the laboratory of Dr. Jeff Milbrandt in the Department of Genetics at Washington University in St. Louis. Our primary goal is to unravel the mechanism of axon degeneration and its role in neurodegenerative disease. Many of our projects are pursued collaboratively with the Aaron DiAntonio lab and focus on how defects in NAD homeostasis alter disease progression in peripheral neuropathy, ALS and retinal degenerative disorders.

Postdoctoral Research Associate

Zhao Lab

Postdoctoral Research Associate position open in Dr. Guoyan Zhao’s laboratory (https://sites.wustl.edu/zhaolab/ ) in the Department of Genetics and Department of Neurology at Washington University School of Medicine. The Zhao laboratory employs multiple cutting-edge technologies in genomics and computational biology to investigate the development and function of mammalian brains in the context of human health and disease. Current areas of interest include applying single-nucleus RNA-sequencing and spatial transcriptomics/proteomics technologies on human brain with the goal of understanding disease pathogenesis of Alzheimer disease (AD), Parkinson disease (PD), and Lewy body diseases (LBDs).

Research Opportunities

Dougherty Lab

This is an exciting research opportunity in the Dougherty lab in the Department of Genetics. We are seeking a motivated scientist to join our team! Work in the lab involves conducting rodent behavioral and molecular analyses for NIH-, foundation-, privately-, and university-funded projects. This includes collecting behavioral data, conducting preliminary data quality analysis, maintaining experimental mouse lines, and performing molecular assays for genotype determination. Additional responsibilities and opportunities include statistical analysis and data interpretation, and assisting the team to bring new behavioral assays online. This position requires flexible hours as evening and weekend work may be required as needed on a study by study basis.
