The laboratory of Dr. David Brafman, part of the ASU-Banner Biodesign Neurodegenerative Research Center, and School of Biological and Health Systems at ASU, is seeking highly motivated applicants for a position as the Edson Postdoctoral Fellow in Alzheimer’s disease research. The Brafman utilizes an interdisciplinary approach that employs human pluripotent stem cells (hPSCs) as a model system in conjunction with various aspects of developmental biology, genetic engineering, and bioinformatics to address basic and translational questions related to neurodevelopment and neurodegenerative disease. The postdoctoral fellow will use a combination of hPSC-based disease models and next generation gene editing technologies to investigate various risk factors that contribute to AD onset and progression. Candidates must have strong organization and interpersonal skills be a self-starter, and have a PhD in bioengineering, stem cell biology, neuroscience, or a related discipline. Experience with pluripotent stem cell culture, CRIPSR-based gene editing, and bioinformatics is a plus. Interested applicants should submit their CV to [email protected].
This position is for a recently funded project with our clinical partners in Banner Neurodegenerative Disease Research Center. The project is focused on conducting independent research as directed by the principle investigator, Dr. Brafman. Activities will include routine maintenance and differentiation of pluripotent stem cells, genome engineering, and bioinformatics analysis. Organizing and presenting data as part of routine meetings, conferences, or scientific manuscripts. The selected individual will also assist with grant preparation and reporting.
• Standard Lab Environment
• PhD in bioengineering, bioinformatics, developmental biology, neuroscience, or related discipline.
• Track record of publications in top-tier journals.
• Experience with pluripotent stem cell culture, gene editing, and neurodegenerative disease modeling.
• Excellent communication and presentation skills.
Please send applications including resume/CV via email to Dr. David Brafman at [email protected] .
