The Institute of Stem Cells and Regenerative Medicine (inStem), is a premier research centre carrying out frontier research in the field stem cell biology. inStem has initiated a collaborative program of research with the National Centre for Biological Sciences and the National Institute for Mental Health and Neurosciences. The program aims to understand the cellular and molecular basis of mental illness with a long-term goal to develop new therapies. The program involves the physiological analysis of “disease in a dish” models of neural function using patient derived human induced pluripotent stem cells (HiPSCs) derivatives.
Description: A Post-Doctoral Fellow position is available for candidate with electrophysiology or biophysics expertise to work in this program. The appointments will be a fixed term position initially for a period of one (1) year that can be further extended depending on the performance of the candidate. The position comes with a consolidated pay based on their qualification and experience.
