Developmental Neuroscience Postdoctoral Position, University of California, Riverside

Posted 10/30/2018

A postdoctoral position is available immediately for a highly-motivated individual interested in understanding the molecular mechanisms of brain development. The individual will join Dr. Martin Riccomagno’s laboratory at the University of California, Riverside. Our laboratory uses a combination of molecular biology, histology, imaging, tissue culture and mouse transgenic approaches to investigate the developmental mechanisms that regulate neural circuit formation.

The successful applicant will be involved in NIH-funded projects in one of the following research areas:

  1. Regulation of neural migration by adhesive cues
  2. Developmental profiling of caspase-dependent refinement

Position requirements:

  • A PhD or MD-PhD degree in a biological science 
  • A solid background in neuroscience or developmental biology
  • Previous experience working with genetic mouse models
  • Proficiency in cellular and molecular biology
  • Excellent communication skills 
  • A demonstrated ability to work independently and learn new techniques

The salary for this position is commensurate with experience and determined by NIH guidelines. Interested applicants should apply by sending a cover letter, CV, and contact information for three references to:
