Mucke Lab



The Mucke Laboratory has a long track record of innovation in disease-focused neuroscience and of training leaders in this field. We are inviting applications from talented students with matching interests and ambitions to join our highly interactive team of scientists at the Gladstone Institutes in San Francisco. Our group focuses on processes that cause cognitive disorders ranging from dementias to epileptic encephalopathies and autism spectrum disorders. We use rodent and tissue culture models to identify and rigorously validate novel drug targets. Experimental models are also used to develop and evaluate promising therapeutic strategies. The clinical relevance and potential of these strategies are assessed through interdisciplinary collaborations involving clinical programs and industrial partners. Postdoctoral fellows who trained in this lab have been very successful in securing leadership positions in academia and industry alike.


Postdoctoral candidates should possess a PhD, MD, or both and have a strong background in neuroscience or other relevant areas of biomedical research, as well as an outstanding record of academic achievements and research productivity. Please send curriculum vitae, description of accomplishments and research interests, and the names of three references to Dr. Lennart Mucke .
