Job Location: Chetty Laboratory, Lokey Stem Cell Research Building, Stanford University, Stanford, CA

A postdoctoral fellow position is available in the Laboratory of Dr. Sundari Chetty, in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences and the Institute for Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine at Stanford University. The overarching goal of the lab is to improve the prospects of autologous cell replacement therapy and in vitro disease modeling for regenerative medicine with applications for neuroscience. Current projects focus on using human induced pluripotent stem cell (hiPSC) lines from individuals with psychiatric disorders (e.g. autism and schizophrenia) to model and understand the underlying cellular and molecular mechanisms. In particular, iPSC lines will be differentiated into the neuronal and glial lineages to investigate changes at the cellular, functional, and mechanistic levels using a broad range of techniques from cell cycle analysis to RNA sequencing. Knowledge gained from these studies will be applied to identify drug targets for the treatment of neuropsychiatric disorders. The position will also involve collaborations with other labs in the Stanford Stem Cell Institute working on related questions.

The position is available now.

Employing Department and Institution: 

Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences and the Institute for Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine, Stanford University.

Minimum degree and field of knowledge: 

PhD or MD in neurobiology, stem cell biology, molecular biology, bioinformatics, or related field required with a strong publication record in these areas. An ideal candidate would have extensive experience working with stem cells and neurons as well as expertise in the use of fluorescence microscopy, flow cytometry, cellular imaging/microscopy, and molecular biology (RT-PCR, cloning, immunoprecipitation, western blotting). Expertise in epigenetics and high throughput sequencing (ChIP-seq, ATAC-seq, DNA methylation, RNA-seq) as well as electrophysiology would be very valuable.
