Description

A funded POSTDOCTORAL position is available immediately in the lab of Prof. Zubair Ahmed (Laboratory of Neurogenetics and Translational Research) at the University of Maryland, School of Medicine, Baltimore.

 
Our mission:
Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a common eye disease of the elderly. Effects on vision are minor at first, but worsen over time. While the progress of advanced “wet AMD” can be slowed, there is no highly effective therapy to prevent and treat “dry AMD,” which leads to irreversible impairment of eyesight once it has advanced to Geographic Atrophy. We use a broad range of techniques from human genetics, viral-mediated gene delivery, neurophysiological and molecular studies in vivo and in vitro, using tissue culture, and mouse models. Our ultimate goal is to develop new treatments for dry AMD.

 
Job description:
Full-time postdoctoral position leading projects related to the translational approaches to reduce/ improve vision loss in novel AMD transgenic mouse models; characterization of retina function, morphology and AMD-related proteins in mouse models. This project will require knowledge/additional training in the high-throughput content screening, retina cell biology, sub-retinal injections, animal models, high resolution imaging, physiological techniques (e.g. ERG), and gene delivery amongst other techniques.



Requirements

Ideal candidates are highly motivated and ambitious graduates of a PhD program in neuroscience, cellular or molecular biology, or biochemistry. Experience with working with mice is essential. Experience in retinal cell biology, or high throughput content screening is not necessary – but welcomed.  The candidate must be a team player, think critically and with excellent oral and written communication skills.

 
Environment:
The laboratory is part of the departments of Otorhinolaryngology Head and Neck Surgery and Ophthalmology, and we are affiliated also with the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. The lab is housed in a newly build large open space at the University of Maryland – HSFIII, in a highly collaborative fashion. The University has state of the art confocal, scanning and transmission electron microscopy, proteomics, flow cytometry and immunology, animal and sequencing facilities. We have the skills and expertise to perform in-depth functional analyses of vision, auditory, and vestibular dysfunction in mouse and zebrafish. The team consists of graduate students, post docs, residents, and surgeons working together on basic science and translational studies. The postdoctoral appointments are renewed on an annual basis contingent on performance and available funding.

 
Benefits:
Stipend follows the NIH recommended guidelines and full health benefits.

 
Contact:
Applications for the position should include a cover letter describing major research achievements and skills, a curriculum vitae, and career goals statement. Please also provide contact information of three professional references.
