Job Title: Postdoctoral Fellow: Cellular Mechanisms of Neurodevelopmental Disorders
Employer: The George Washington University
Location: Washington, DC

Looking for a highly motivated and enthusiastic postdoctoral fellow interested in using animal models to study the mechanisms of neurodevelopmental disorders starting in the fall of 2013. Our works stems from human mutations severely affecting brain development and cognitive function, and focuses on two processes controlling neuronal differentiation 1) interactions between the extracellular matrix and its neuronal receptors, and 2) signaling protein trafficking through the endosome. The fellow’s project will focus on this second research area characterizing a mouse model of autism and intellectual disability, using cell biology, biochemistry and behavioral paradigms. We believe in innovative, multi-disciplinary and question-driven science, and promote an atmosphere of open communication and collaboration inside and outside the lab. Please visit our website for more details.


Experience in one or more of the following is required (neuronal cell biology, biochemistry, mouse genetics, mouse behavioral assays), but there will be numerous opportunities for training to complement current skills. A record of first-author publications in a related area is desirable, as are good writing skills.


Please provide a cover letter including a statement of research interest, curriculum vitae and contact information for 3 references addressed to Dr. Chiara Manzini, PhD, Department of Pharmacology and Physiology, The George Washington University and apply through the official job posting using the following URL:
