Description

The Osterweil lab is recruiting a motivated individual to fill a Wellcome Trust funded postdoctoral position in the Centre for Discovery Brain Sciences at the University of Edinburgh. We are studying mRNA translation in specific neural circuits, and investigating how disruptions lead to autism and intellectual disability. Our work uses cutting-edge molecular techniques, including cell type-specific TRAP-seq, ribosome profiling and single-cell RNA-seq, and combines them with electrophysiology and behavior to assess how circuit-specific changes in translation alter learning in autism models. This approach continues to identify novel therapeutic strategies.

The post requires relevant experience in Neuroscience research, with a PhD either obtained or expected within 6 months of the start of the contract. The applicant must have experience with molecular biology and a working knowledge of RNA-seq analysis and/or related bioinformatics processing. This is a full-time post. Interested applicants should send a CV and letters of reference to Emily.osterweil@ed.ac.uk, or submit a full application using this link: https://elxw.fa.em3.oraclecloud.com/hcmUI/CandidateExperience/en/sites/CX_1001/job/639/?utm_medium=jobshare
