The Department of Neurology, University of Michigan has an opening for a postdoctoral fellow to study the role of Ubiquilin2 (UBQLN2), a protein implicated in familial ALS/FTD. The primary focus of the studies is to understand the molecular mechanism of UBQLN2 aggregation and its connection to disease.
Drs. Henry Paulson and Magdalena Ivanova are looking for individuals who are highly motivated, dedicated, creative and willing to develop and apply new approaches to study disease. This project will provide the hired individual with an excellent opportunity for grant application and development of independent research.
Candidates with expertise in the area of structural biology, biochemistry or molecular neuroscience are welcome to apply. The research is interdisciplinary and will provide many opportunities for learning new skills and techniques, ranging from x-ray diffraction of UBQLN2, bioinformatics and development/analysis of cellular and animal models.
MD or PhD in related field
