This job posting is for the Meyer lab in the Department of Computational Biomedicine, which is a hybrid wet and dry lab working at the interface of data science and omics. We have NIH funding for a project that will develop a human iPSC-derived glutamatergic neuron model of Alzheimer’s disease in 96-well plates that we can use for high throughput drug screening. The model system will be 2D neurons or 3D brain organoids. This project will also make extensive use of mass spectrometry based multi-omics (proteomics and metabolomics). The successful candidate will work in the Meyer lab’s newly renovated wet lab space in the Pacific Design Center where we have ample tissue culture and cell characterization equipment. For this project we need someone with a biology or neuroscience background, and preferably someone with experience growing, maintaining, and characterizing iPSC-derived neurons. If the successful candidate also has experience with mass spectrometry-based proteomics and/or metabolomics that is preferred but not required. The successful candidate will have experience publishing neuroscience research as first author.

We are open to hiring at either postdoc level or project scientist (post-postdoctoral). Applicants can apply to the linked job posting and we can find the appropriate title if they are a good fit.


The Project Scientist works independently and in cooperation with the Principal Investigator to make significant and creative contributions to a research or creative project in any academic discipline.

Project Scientists are not required to carry out independent research or to develop an independent research reputation and do not have teaching responsibilities. Ordinarily, the Project Scientist title will carry out research or creative programs as well as administration of day-to-day lab operations with supervision by a member of the Professorial Series.
