Postdoctoral, Pathology, Posted 10/17/17


JOB SUMMARY

The laboratory of Dr. Jiri Safar in the Department of Pathology at the Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine has a postdoctoral position open to study biological, biophysical, and translational aspects of Alzheimer’s disease and neurodegenerative diseases caused by misfolded proteins. The position is available under the NIH 5-year grant award in collaboration with the Alzheimer’s Disease Center at the New York University Medical School.

The Safar laboratory utilizes cutting edge biophysical and genetic tools including transgenic mice to study the role of misfolded proteins in pathogenesis of neurodegenerative diseases. Our recent paper shows that the rate of progression in Alzheimer’s disease is linked to the distinct structural organization of amyloid beta. We have ongoing projects focusing on defining the mechanisms of this effect and coupling between different prion-like strains of amyloid beta, tau protein, and the disease phenotype. These projects would be ideally suited to a postdoctoral candidate with experience in experimental neuropathology of murine Alzheimer’s models, immunohistochemistry, fluorescence microscopy, and techniques of protein biochemistry. 

Please submit CV, names and contact information for three references, and a description of your research experience to Dr. Safar Jiri.Safar@case.edu.

Regulation of CFTR gene expression.

Errors in the cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) gene are associated with the common inherited disorder cystic fibrosis. This gene has a complex pattern of tissue specific and temporal regulation (reviewed in Gosalia and Harris 2015, Genes 6, 543-558). We recently showed the differential contribution of cis-regulatory elements to the higher order chromatin structure and expression of the locus (Yang et al. 2016, Nucleic Acids Research 44, 3082-3094). Our current goals are 1) to determine the mechanisms of action of novel tissue specific and developmental regulatory elements in CFTR; and 2) to develop novel therapeutic approaches that target CFTR gene regulatory mechanisms. 

Successful applicants for this CFF/NIH funded program will have a strong record of accomplishment as shown by publications as a graduate student and/or postdoc, be highly motivated and have a passion for human genetics/gene regulatory mechanism research. Expertise in one or more of the following areas is required: familiarity with use of public genome browsers and large data repositories; state of the art genomics technologies including ChIP-seq, RNA-seq, ATAC-seq, 4C-seq) and the use of relevant bioinformatic pipelines. CRISPR/Cas9 genetic manipulations.

 Familiarity with general techniques of molecular biology and mammalian cell biology is essential. We are part of a vibrant and interactive research community at Case Western Reserve University and occupy excellent, modern laboratory space.

 Please send an electronic letter of application, quoting the reference CWRU/AH2/2017, Curriculum Vitae and contact information of 3 referees to: jobsview@case.edu.  Hiring is contingent upon eligibility to work in the United States.

WORKING CONDITIONS: Office and laboratory environment.  May have exposure to hazards including animals, chemicals, blood-borne pathogens, lasers, and UV light in addition to DOT shipping/receiving of hazardous biological or infectious materials.
