Postdoctoral Research Fellow
Contact/Scientist: Dr. Jing Wang
Professor, Department of Cellular and Molecular Medicine
Program: Regenerative Medicine
Description of the position:
Our research focuses on delineating molecular mechanisms that regulate proliferation and differentiation of neural stem cells, with the ultimate goal of the development of stem cell- based therapy to promote neural repair in the context of various neurological disorders. The ongoing project in the lab is targeting the aPKC-CBP pathway to promote neural stem cell reprogramming differentiation in the context of neurodegenerative diseases including stroke, multiple sclerosis and Alzheimer’s disease. A variety of molecular, cellular, and behavioral techniques are used in the laboratory, including transgenic mouse models, neurosphere culture, reprogramming cell culture and stereotaxic surgery, etc.
- Experience in Molecular Biology (cloning, mutagenesis, PCR), Cell Biology (cell line or primary cell culture, immunohistochemistry and immunocytochemistry) and in vivo animal model study.
- Excellence in research with strong publication records
- Excellent written and oral communication skills
- Experience with Human iPSC-derived cell culture is an asset
