A Postdoctoral Fellow position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Haesun Kim, in the Department of Biological Sciences at Rutgers-Newark. The successful applicant will participate in research that uncovers the mechanisms underlying myelin abnormalities associated with human diseases. Funded by the NIH-NINDS, a new project investigates the impact of intracellular choline metabolism on myelin homeostasis and repair at the molecular level. The project places specific emphasis on epigenetic regulation in myelin-forming glial cells and the implication on improving myelination under pathological conditions. The candidate should have a Ph.D. in the field of Cell Biology, Molecular Biology or related fields, and experience in the use of various biochemical and molecular techniques in conducting both in vitro and in vivo studies using mammalian cell cultures and transgenic mouse models, respectively. Experiences in genomic/bioinformatic analysis is a plus. The candidate should have at least one first-author paper in a peer-reviewed journal. Good oral and written communication skills in English are required.
