The Morrow lab is seeking a highly motivated postdoctoral research associate/fellow with experience in yeast genetics and a strong publication record. This position will focus on research involving genetic screens in single cell models of neurologic disease, including in Saccharomyces cerevisiae and in mammalian cells. Representative publications for relevant projects include: Neuron 80(1):97-112, 2013 or PNAS 113(38): E5598-607, 2016. A focus is on cellular mechanisms involving organellar biology using super-resolution microscopy.
Candidates with a strong training and background in molecular and cell biology, biochemistry, genetics, and/or neuroscience are desired. Also desired are skills and experience in the following: cell culture, yeast biology, and advanced microscopy. Abilities in CRISPR-Cas9-based genome editing are a plus.
The Morrow Lab is housed in a collaborative and multi-disciplinary Carney Institute for Brain Science and the Department of Molecular Biology, Cell Biology and Biochemistry at Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island. The research focus of Dr. Morrow's research group is neurogenetic disorders, including developmental as well as degenerative disorders. Dr. Morrow's research integrates basic research, translational research, and patient-oriented studies in the areas of human neurodevelopmental disorders, genetics/genomics, and mechanisms in cell biology, including in human stem cell models (induced pluripotent stem cells).
