The research focus of the Morrow Lab is on neurogenetic disorders, including developmental as well as
degenerative disorders. Dr. Morrow’s research integrates basic research, translational research, and patient-
oriented studies in the areas of human disorders with mixed neurodevelopmental and neurodegenerative
pathologies, genetics/genomics, and mechanisms in cell biology, including in rodent models (mouse and rat)
and in human stem cell models (induced pluripotent stem cells). His long-range research goals include
contributing to the development of innovative medical interventions that will enhance cognitive and adaptive
gains in patients with neurogenetic-based developmental and degenerative disorders. The Morrow Lab is
housed in the Center for Translational Neuroscience, which is affiliated with the highly collaborative and multi-
disciplinary Carney Institute for Brain Science and Brown Institute for Translational Science, and the
Department of Molecular Biology, Cell Biology & Biochemistry at Brown University in Providence, Rhode
Island.

Dr. Morrow seeks a highly motivated postdoctoral research associate/fellow with experience in genetics, cell
biology, and/or disease models (cell or rodent) and a strong publication record. Candidates should also have
an interest in the genetics and cellular mechanisms, in particular as related to organellar biology, of disorders
with features of neurodevelopmental, neuropsychiatric, and neurodegenerative pathology. Candidates with a
strong training and background in molecular and cell biology, biochemistry, genetics, and/or neuroscience are
desired. Also desired are skills and experience in the following: cell culture, yeast biology, and advanced
microscopy. Abilities in CRISPR-Cas9-based genome editing are a plus.


Interested candidates should send a letter of application, current curriculum vitae, and names and contact
information for three references to Eric M. Morrow MD PhD at: [email protected].
