Job Description
Postdoc positions and Research Associate Positions are available in the Qi lab in the Department of Physiology & Biophysics at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine.

The lab studies cellular and molecular mechanisms of neurodegenerative diseases, emphasizing
mitochondrial pathology, metabolism, and immune response. We use a combination of in vitro cell culture, in vivo transgenic animal models and patient iPS cells-derived neuron and glia to study the pathogenesis underlying neurodegenerative diseases. Another research focus of the lab is the development of therapeutics for the treatment of human diseases. We have been using the rationally designed peptide inhibitors of protein-protein interactions and high throughput screening to identify mitochondrial enhancers as therapeutic options. Job Requirements
The successful applicants will participate in NIH-funded projects on elucidating the molecular basis of metabolic dysregulation and immune response in neurodegenerative diseases. The applicants must have a PhD and/or MD degree in neuroscience, molecular biology, cell biology, pharmacology, immunology or related field. Candidates with experience in neurodegenerative diseases are highly desired.

Interested individuals should send a cover letter, CV, and the names/phone numbers of three people who could provide letters of reference by email to Xin Qi, PhD, . Please visit our lab website at for additional information. Please don't forget to mention Bio Careers when applying.
