Positions

POSTDOCTORAL

We are currently actively seeking highly motivated individuals at the postdoctoral level. We are in the Department of Molecular and Human Genetics at Baylor College of Medicine, one of the most highly regarded genetics departments in the country and we work in the Texas Children’s Jan and Dan Duncan Neurological Research Institute (NRI). We are actively recruiting highly motivated and hard-working postdoctoral fellows.

Wangler lab is focused on gene discovery and the pathogenesis of Mendelian disorders. We use clinical observation, human genomics and the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster to study the function of genes that cause rare disorders in humans. We work in the state-of-the-art human genomics and Drosophila genetics tools available in this environment to understand the in vivo function of genes and variants that are associated with undiagnosed diseases. Our ongoing projects include peroxisomal disorder studies in fly and human, gene and variant analysis for the Undiagnosed Diseases Network as well as the Simons Foundation Autism Research Initiative.

We are seeking postdoctoral candidates with training in molecular biology (e.g. molecular cloning) and biochemistry (e.g. western blotting). Prior experience in Drosophila or prior experience in peroxisomal biology will be considered a plus. Candidates must be able to work independently to develop their own research project, but also be willing to work as part of a larger group and be a great team player.

To apply for the position, please send your Curriculum Vitae, 1-2 page document that describes your research interests and future goals, and contact information for three(3) references to michael.wangler@bcm.edu. The position will remain open until filled.

We are an equal opportunity employer and all qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, disability status, protected veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by law.
