Post-doctoral Fellow in Molecular Neurobiology and Drug Discovery for Huntington’s disease

Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine

Baltimore, MD

Job posting number: #7057157

Posted: April 29, 2019

Application Deadline: Open Until Filled

Job Description

Our laboratory, part of the Division of Neurobiology at Johns Hopkins directed by Dr. Christopher Ross, is interested in the identification and characterization of therapeutic targets for the treatment of Huntington’s disease (HD) and related disorders. As part of this effort, we have received funding to explore the molecular biology of huntingtin, the HD gene, with an emphasis on the mechanisms that regulate its expression and on searching for small molecules that may treat HD by decreasing expression of huntingtin. We are seeking a post-doc to take a leading role in this project. In particular, strong candidates will have extensive experience in mechanisms of gene regulation or drug discovery and a long-term career interest in neurodegenerative or neuropsychiatric disorders.

If interested, please send a cover letter describing your experience and interests, with an attached CV, to rmargoli@jhmi.edu, office phone 410-614-4262.
