Postdoc position, Chuang lab, Cincinnati Children's Hospital Research 
Foundation

A postdoctoral position is available in my new laboratory in the 
Division of Developmental Biology at Cincinnati Children's Hospital 
Research Foundation beginning in November.  My research focuses on 
understanding the molecular mechanisms by which functional neural 
circuits are assembled, using the small roundworm Caenorhabditis 
elegans as an experimental organism.  The lab uses a 
multidisciplinary approach that integrates genetics, molecular 
biology, cell biology, biochemistry, electrophysiology and microscopy 
to address this question.

This position involves the study of signaling pathways that specifies 
neuronal diversity.  Possible approaches include: forward and reverse 
genetic approaches to identify new regulators, use of microarray 
analysis to identify regulated genes in a neural circuit, and 
electrophysiological analysis of the circuit.  Prior experience in C. 
elegans is helpful but not a prerequisite. 

I will have funding available for suitable candidates for at least 
the first three years, and will support postdocs in their efforts to 
obtain outside funding.  The successful applicant will work in a very 
stimulating academic and cultural environment.

To learn more about the division of Developmental Biology, see 
http://www.cincinnatichildrens.org/research/div/dev-biology/

Applicant should have a Ph.D. degree in genetics, cell biology, 
molecular biology, neurobiology, biochemistry or similar with 
experience in molecular biology techniques. Interested candidates 
should please send a brief cover letter describing research 
experience, CV, one or two reprints of published work/preprints of 
work in preparation or in press, and the names and addresses of three 
people who can provide recommendations to Dr. Chiou-Fen Chuang at 
cchuang at rockefeller.edu.
