This is a project at the interface of two labs: the Mancuso lab, working on human and mouse microglia biology in brain disorders, and the Sleegers lab working on complex Alzheimer’s disease genetics. In this project, you will make use of innovative genetic and transcriptomic approaches, genome engineering, CRISPR and viral vector technology, iPSC and humanized mouse technology to unravel the link between genetic risk and microglia function in Alzheimer’s disease. The successful applicant will work in both labs.
We are seeking a highly motivated, enthusiastic, critical and creative individual to join our teams. The candidate should have a strong interest in neurobiology and wet lab or dry lab experience.
