Description

This posting is to fill an open postdoctoral fellowship position in the laboratory of Hye Young Lee, PhD in the Department of Cellular & Integrative Physiology, School of Medicine. The Lee Lab studies the molecular neurobiology and etiology of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and related neurodevelopmental disorders, using a range of cutting-edge molecular, cellular and integrative approaches on multiple topics including inflammation, development and gene editing therapeutics. The Lee Lab focuses on: 1) identifying the molecular mechanisms responsible for the pathophysiology of neurodevelopmental disorders, and using these mechanisms to rescue behavioral dysfunction in mouse models, 2) elucidating specific autistic behaviors, including social communication deficits and repetitive behaviors, and identifying the brain region(s) and neuron groups underlying these behavioral deficits in mouse models, and 3) developing potential therapeutic treatments for these brain disorders by using CRISPR. To address these questions, our lab employs molecular and cellular neurobiology tools, and animal behavioral studies. Individuals with experience or interest in these research areas, who are self-motivated and have a passion for ASD/neurodevelopmental disorder research are encouraged to apply. Funding is in place for this position to begin immediately. To apply, please send a curriculum vitae (CV), a brief (< 2 page) statement of research interests (cover letter), and contact information for three references to Dr. Hye Young Lee at leeh6@uthscsa.edu. The review process will begin immediately. Please check recent publications from Lee lab (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/sites/myncbi/1DCUx12nLD_oK4/collections/58681630/public/). Please find news about Lee lab (www.hyeyoungleelab.org/news) (https://lsom.uthscsa.edu/physiology/team-member/hye-young-lee-ph-d/).
