Postdoctoral researcher
Royal Veterinary College
Creating genetically-accurate models of CLN3 disease in zebrafish. Not yet officially advertised
Postdoctoral fellowships
Pediatric Storage Disorders Laboratory
Postdoctoral fellowships are available in the Pediatric Storage Disorders Laboratory, Washington University in St Louis to study and treat new aspects of disease in NCL mouse and sheep models. Using functional and behavioral tests, histology, quantitative microscopy, pre-clinical translation (enzyme replacement, gene therapy). For further information please contact Dr. Jonathan Cooper via
Postdoctoral scientist (junior/senior)
Penn State College of Medicine
We study how organelle crosstalk between mitochondria and lysosomes contributes to cell function and disease (including lysosomal storage diseases like Batten disease). My lab has two funded positions for postdoctoral scientists, one junior and one senior. We seek scientists that are interested in metabolism, organelle crosstalk, and signaling mechanisms of disease.

Experience in any of the following is a plus: imaging, RNAseq analysis/bioinformatics, neurobiology, iPSC differentiation is a plus.

The project involves cultured mammalian cells (including some CRISPR new lines we generated), iPSC-derived cells, and mouse models, and often builds on in silico data to generate testable hypothesis.

The position is initially offered for one year due to university rules, but is renewable.

Senior Clinical Fellow in Paediatric Neurology
The Evelina London Children's Hospital
The successful candidate will be exposed to a wide variety of neurological conditions both acute and chronic in both the outpatient and inpatient settings. The post will offer opportunities to develop skills in multidisciplinary management of childhood neurology and in the use and interpretation of neuro-imaging methods, and neurophysiological tests. A large number of multidisciplinary clinics also take place, which provide further components towards neuro-disability and general neurology exposure. They include complex epilepsy, neuromuscular and peripheral neuropathy, and neonatal neurology
Research Coordinator - Clinical Trials Unit
Kennedy Krieger Institute
Research Coordinators in the Clinical Trials Unit collaborate with Principle Investigators (PIs) and research teams to conduct clinical research, including clinical trials. This position requires a degree of responsibility, flexibility, and independence to perform diverse duties including operationalizing protocols, and collecting, analyzing, and archiving data.
Senior Research Coordinator - Clinical Trials Unit
Kennedy Krieger Institute
The Senior Research Coordinator in the Clinical Trials Unit will be primarily responsible for complex project management for multiple research studies related to neurological and neuropsychiatric conditions in pediatric patients. Activities include but are not limited to project execution, implementation, daily administration and close out for multiple research studies. The Senior Research Coordinator will ensure precise implementation of and adherence to study protocol, create all study documentation, oversee operating procedures, timelines, IRB applications, data preparation, and other research-related activities. In addition to operational management of multiple research studies, the Senior Research Coordinator will see participants in ongoing clinical trials, and will be responsible for specimen collection, processing, and DOT/ IATA compliant handling and shipment.
