Single cell interaction networks
To apply, please email Iain with a brief description of your interests, a CV, and the names of three references.
Description: We are interested in developing tools to map cellular connections in the mouse brain at massive scale. Our approach is to combine virus tracing, molecular barcoding, and single cell sequencing to study both the connections and transcriptional profiles of cellular networks. We seek a talented postdoctoral researcher to further develop and apply barcoded rabies tracing to new experimental systems and animal models of disease.
Qualifications: The ideal candidate is a molecular biologist, immunologist, or neuroscientist interested in high throughput characterization of cellular interactions. Candidates must hold or be within 1 year of obtaining a PhD or MD/PhD.
Demonstrated experience working with mice is required.
Additional experience in the following areas is desired:
- Rabies tracing
- Disease models (MS, AD)
- Molecular immunology
- NGS (library prep, Illumina sequencing)
- Single cell sequencing
- Confocal microscopy
