Job Description The laboratory for Cell fate specification and Circuit Development at the Burke Neurological Institute ( ), an academic affiliate of Weill Cornell Medicine is seeking a talented Postdoctoral Fellow to work at the intersection of developmental and regenerative neuroscience. The postdoctoral fellow will use single cell transcriptomics and epigenomics to identify novel molecules that control the loss of long-distance axon regeneration during development. These approaches will be combined with mouse genetics, ultrasound-guided microsurgery, high-resolution microscopy, and behavioral analyses.

The goal of our lab is to identify molecular strategies that can be applied toward repairing the diseased or damaged motor circuits. Our approach is to investigate molecules that build these circuits during development and then recruit them for nervous system repair. Our efforts are aimed at restoring motor function after traumatic injury to the CNS as occurs in spinal cord injury, and stroke, as well as in motor neuron diseases such as ALS.

Job Requirements Qualifications:

Candidates should have a Ph.D. in Neuroscience, Molecular Biology, Biochemistry or a related field in the life sciences at the time of employment.
A background in Neuroscience as well as directly related lab experience in molecular biology (gene profiling, gene misexpression, anatomical circuit-level investigation, and/or mouse surgical experience will be considered as a plus).
Some familiarity / experience with coding, though not required, will also be considered an asset.
Strong communication, demonstrated organization skills, attention to detail, and the ability to carry out responsibilities in a collaborative team environment are essential.
Strong mentoring skills to supervise, guide and mentor students and technicians in the lab.

Please submit applications to Dr. Vibhu Sahni at Please do not forget to mention Bio Careers when applying.
