Purpose: My laboratory is looking for a responsible, highly motivated post-doctor.

Scope of study: Alzheimer’s disease, Rett syndrome, and other forms of brain injury.  The projects include: (1) microglial pathophysiology in neurodevelopmental disorders. (2) experimental therapeutics for Alzheimer’s disease and related disorders such as microglial potassium channel blockers, and (3) glycoproteomics of brain disorders. 

Environment: UC Davis has a vibrant, highly multidisciplinary and collaborative research community. Dr. Jin assumes the neuropathology leadership roles in the M.I.N.D. Institute (http://www.ucdmc.ucdavis.edu/mindinstitute/) and the Alzheimer’s Disease Center (http://alzheimer.ucdavis.edu/). His laboratory is funded by NIA, NICHD, NINDS, and California Department of Public Health. 

Ph.D. (or M.D. with substantial benchside research experience), who has experience in molecular biology and cell biology, preferably with experience in rodent models and neural cultures. Experience in electrophysiology or mitochondrial biology would be a plus.
