Position Summary

We are inviting applications for a postdoctoral position in the
recently established laboratory of Dr. Beirowski
(http://hjkri.buffalo.edu/beirowski.html) at the Hunter James Kelly
Research Institute in Buffalo, New York State. The Beirowski lab focuses on elucidating the molecular mechanisms of the
degeneration of axons, the longest cellular projections of neurons, using a broad repertoire of innovative methods including
metabolomics (e.g. Beirowski et al., 2014, Nature Neuroscience 17(10)). Potential projects encompass the development and
characterization of novel mutant animal models showing compromised axon integrity in the nervous system secondary to
glial abnormalities. Applicants should have demonstrated outstanding performance throughout their previous studies with
their own publications. The successful candidate is a highly motivated and exceptionally organized team player with good communication skills. Strong language and writing English skills
are also important.

Minimum Qualifications

A PhD degree with robust background in molecular and cell biology is essential, and experience in mouse genetics and
experimentation is also required such as mouse colony maintenance/breeding and histopathological characterization.

Preferred Qualifications

A neuroscientific background is not necessary, but is a plus.
