Join the Team
Postdoctoral fellows. We are hiring highly motivated PhD neuroscientists or cellular biologists to study dynamic features of microglial cells and how such properties impact neuronal and circuit function. We seek can- didates with a strong background in confocal or multiphoton imaging. We also welcome candidates who excel in one of the following areas: slice electrophysiology, molecular biology, next generation sequencing or animal behavior. PhD must be expected within 6-9 months.
Please send a cover letter, current CV, and contact info for three refereneces to: .
Undergraduate students. We always welcome undergraduate volunteers interested in gaining a research foundation in preparation for graduate or medical school. Undergraduate researchers will gain experience in techniques such as immunohistochemistry and high resolution microscope imaging. Priority will be given to freshman, sophomore and junior students interested in committing to 2 years of research experience plus full time research for at least 1 summer. We will support undergraduate students in submitting applications to obtain paid internships to support the summer research experience.
Please send a cover letter describing why you are interested in our research, current resume, and unofficial transcript to: .
Our goal is to discover innovative approaches to treating CNS circuit dysfunction and disease through rigorous study of microglia and microglia-neuron interactions. We believe in team-based science, where lab members advance their own projects but actively contribute to one another’s projects. We aim to create an inclusive research environment where scientists and trainees from all backgrounds feel welcome and are aided in moving toward their career and educational goals.
We are located in the newly renovated South Tower of the Health Sciences Center (CHS) in the David Geffen School of Medicine at University of California, Los Angeles. Our lab is on the Neuroscience Theme Floor together with the De Nardo, Buonomano, Golshani, Hong, and Portera-Cailliau labs, providing a highly interactive and state-of-the-art research environment.
