An exciting opportunity has arisen to join the Rare Disease and Neurodevelopmental Disorders lab lead by Dr Cristina Dias within the Department of Medical and Molecular Genetics, School of Basic and Biomedical Sciences. A post-doctoral position is now available to investigate neurodevelopmental disorders caused by mutations in regulators of chromatin structure and function.

The RDND lab works translationally, from gene function to mechanisms of development and disease. Building upon previous work in the lab, this GOSH Charity funded position will specifically address the role of mutations in human brain development using cutting edge in vitro tools. The post-holder will lead experimentation and analysis of in vitro models and apply high throughput methods such as scRNA-seq to decipher mechanisms of mutation in early human brain development. In collaboration with the lab of Dr Katie Long, they will models of disease in developing human.
