Postdoctoral Researcher or Staff Scientist
Department of Molecular and Medical Genetics, Oregon Health & Science University
The main research focuses of the Nakai lab are:
• AAV and other parvovirus vector biology - capsids, vector genomes and virus-host interactions
• AAV virology - assembly activating protein (AAP) and capsid assembly
• AAV antigen-antibody interactions
• Engineering of AAV and other parvoviruses to develop the next generation of gene delivery vectors
• Preclinical studies of gene therapy for the treatment of central nervous system (CNS) diseases, diabetes, inborn errors of metabolism, eye diseases, and hemophilia
• Development of a non-surgical method of sterilizing cats and dogs
The lab takes interdisciplinary approaches to solving these problems, utilizing both wet and dry lab techniques including the next generation sequencing (-seq approaches), mass spectrometry, bioinformatics, computer simulation, structural modeling, image reconstruction and registration as well as traditional molecular and cellular biology-based approaches. The lab also uses small and large animal models, including mice, cats, rabbits, pigs, monkeys and chimeric mice with human liver or pancreatic islets in collaboration with experts in each field. Successful candidates will join an interdisciplinary collaborative team and will be expected to lead several ongoing and new projects. They will also contribute to the training of graduate, undergraduate, and high school students, as well as research staff.
• Doctoral degree in a relevant field
• Substantial knowledge and expertise in molecular biology
• Ability to perform multiple tasks and prioritize them
• Ability to organize and handle a large quantity of data
• Excellent creative thinking skills
• Excellent verbal and written communication skills
• Strong enthusiasm for AAV and gene therapy research

The Srinivasan Lab is seeking motivated applicants to conduct NIH/NHLBI funded research that will identify the molecular mechanisms of lymphatic vascular development. The lab uses mouse genetics, biochemical, cellular and molecular biology tools to dissect the roles of transcription factors and signaling molecules in vivo. Our long-term goal is to understand how defects in developmental pathways could lead to diseases such as lymphedema and valvular dysfunction.
We are also interested in understanding the comorbidities of lymphedema such as fibrosis.
