Postdoctoral Research Associate Position
A postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Lindsay Schwarz in the Department of Developmental Neurobiology at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. The ideal candidate is interested in understanding how neural circuits in the brain regulate the tumor microenvironment in a genetic model of the pediatric cancer diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma (DIPG). This project is a unique opportunity to bridge neuroscience and cancer biology fields, utilizing advanced methods such as viral neural circuit tracing, tissue clearing, light-sheet microscopy, and MRI. Preference will be given to applicants who have received their PhD in the past 1-3 years and have experience in neurobiology or cancer biology-related research. It is expected that the candidate will independently advance the research project, interact collaboratively with other members of the lab, and have excellent oral and written communication skills.
