Job Opportunity: Postdoctoral Fellow Position open at University of Alabama at Birmingham

There is an opening for a postdoctoral fellow position at the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Genetics, University of Alabama at Birmingham to work in the field of Friedreich’s ataxia. Interests of the laboratory include elucidating mechanisms of epigenetic silencing caused by expanded GAA repeats, developing new therapeutic approaches for the disease and defining new biomarkers of FRDA. The work will be conducted using predominantly cellular models of the disease, including induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) and neuronal and cardiac cells derived from iPSC lines, as well as mouse models of the disease. We are seeking a highly motivated and career-oriented individual with advanced tissue culture, molecular biology and biochemistry skills. Under supervision, the successful candidate will be responsible for experiment design, data acquisition, analysis and interpretation, and manuscript writing. Previous experience in the field of repeat expansion diseases, especially working with mouse models of neurodegenerative disease, is preferred. Interested individuals please contact directly Dr. Marek Napierala (mnapiera@uab.edu) or Dr. Jill Sergesketter Butler (jsbutler@uab.edu).
