Post Doctoral Scientist- Center for Gene Therapy
Full Time, Benefit Eligible; M-F- 8AM-5PM
We are seeking a Post Doctoral Scientist- The Bradbury Laboratory is dedicated to understanding disease mechanisms and developing therapeutic approaches for rare, pediatric neurodegenerative disorders. Advances in adeno-associated virus (AAV) vectors have led to safer and more efficient viral vehicles to deliver therapeutic transgenes in a single injection, and gene therapy is now a favorable therapeutic intervention for monogenic diseases. A primary focus of the Bradbury lab is improving AAV targeting of myelinating cells, a current limitation of AAV, in order to advance therapeutic outcomes for leukodystrophies and other white matter disorders. The Bradbury lab is translational in nature with a commitment to safely and efficiently moving therapies into the clinic for rare, pediatric disorders. We are looking for a highly motivated postdoctoral person to join our dynamic team. In particular, we are looking for someone with experience in molecular biology (cloning, qPCR, IF, WB), as well as mouse experience (breeding, behavioral testing, injections, and dissection). Background in gene therapy and/or neuroscience is preferred but not required. The applicant should be highly interested in translating therapies for pediatric genetic diseases and should be eager to learn and work on the bench in an independent manner. The job description includes, but is not restricted to performing research experiments, maintaining detailed records of experiments, preparing laboratory reports, analyzing data and preparing publications and grant applications.
