Goodchild Lab, Center for the Biology of Disease, Leuven, Belgium - Post-doctoral Research Position: Membrane Lipids in Neurological Disease


A post-doctoral position on membrane lipid regulation in neuronal function and disease is available from September 2016 in the Goodchild Lab, Center for the Biology of Disease, Leuven, Belgium.

Our group has associated abnormal membrane lipid synthesis with the neurological disease of dystonia. The project will now explore the biochemical mechanism underlying how the DYT1 dystonia torsin protein regulates lipid metabolism. We are also interested to develop projects on how abnormal lipid metabolism interferes with neuronal function in dystonia and other neurological diseases.

Our group works with cell, fly and mouse systems, so we provide an excellent opportunity to learn new experimental approaches.

    Profile
  • The project will benefit from good knowledge of lipid metabolism or endomembrane cell biology. However, we will consider a broad range of backgrounds.
  • We are especially interested in candidates with Drosophila molecular genetics experience who would also join the large fly research community in Leuven.
  • Candidates must have strong English knowledge and have received a PhD degree within the last six years, or be due to complete in 2016.
  • Financial support is available but the successful candidate is encouraged to obtain an independent fellowship (Marie-Curie, EMBO, or National funding organizations).

Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine - Immediate Postdoc Position in Lipid Research

 

We currently have a new postdoc position open for a recent graduate (will graduate by September of this year or within 1 year of obtaining their PhD) in lipid research in the Department of Biological Chemistry and Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. There are two projects on which the new postdoc could participate. The first project, focuses on the enzymology and SAR studies of DGKs. The second involves the role of lipid metabolizing enzymes in the mammalian nervous system (CNS). These studies involve active collaborations with people in the departments of Neuroscience and Biophysics and Biophysical Chemistry.

For more information, contact Dan Raben at draben@jhmi.edu. If anyone is going to the ASBMB meeting in San Diego, we could arrange a meeting there as well.
