Syracuse, NY, United States

The Upstate Medical University has a Postdoctoral Research Associate position available in Dr. Huaiyu Hu’s group to study the mechanisms of retinal degeneration. The lab is broadly focused on retinal diseases, with the general goals of elucidating the roles of cilia in photoreceptor health and how abnormal ciliary function regulates photoreceptor degeneration and pursuing translational approaches for therapeutic development of the disease. We seek a hardworking, highly motivated, self-driven, creative, and interactive scientist with a track record of first-author research papers published in peer-reviewed journals to lead studies in multi-disciplinary NIH-funded projects.  The position involves using state-of-the-art genome editing and high-resolution imaging in zebrafish to study molecular and cellular mechanisms of retinitis pigmentosa. The candidate will analyze data, summarize results, and prepare posters and manuscripts for conferences and publications. The position offers an excellent opportunity for interactions with other laboratories at the Center for Vision Research (http://www.upstate.edu/cvr/) as well as the Department of Neuroscience and Physiology (http://www.upstate.edu/neuroscience-department/). Required qualifications include PhD in biochemistry, molecular biology, or neuroscience-related fields with a strong experimental expertise in biochemistry, molecular biology, and/or histology. Salary level is commensurate with qualifications and experience. Upstate Medical University is an Equal Opportunity Employer. Females/Minorities/Protected Veterans/Individuals with Disabilities are encouraged to apply. Interested candidates with strong publication record should send their application with current CV including three references to huh@upstate.edu.
