Postdoc and graduate positions available at Chen lab

University of Southern California, Los Angeles (LA), CA


Postdoc and graduate positions are available in Dr. Jian-Fu (Jeff) Chen’s lab at the University of Southern California (USC) at Los Angeles (LA), California, USA. The lab uses genetically modified mice and human induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs)/brain organoids to model developmental brain disorders (DBDs) and neurodegenerative diseases followed by mechanistic studies at molecular, cellular, circuit, and behavioral levels (Nat. Commun., 2019, PMID: 31197141; Genes Dev., 2020, PMID: 32115408). We also investigate craniofacial biology and skull-brain interaction using mouse genetics and human iPSC models (Cell., 2021, PMID: 33417861). We aim to develop novel therapeutic strategies to treat neurological and craniofacial disorders. Interested individuals should send a CV and three references by email to Jian-Fu (Jeff) Chen, Ph.D via
