We are an inter-disciplinary lab and graduates with degrees in neuroscience, biology, pharmacology, biochemistry or related disciplines will be considered. Most importantly, we are looking for someone who is talented, motivated and enthusiastic about scientific research.|
The ideal candidate will have familiarity with one or more of the following preferred qualifications: microscopy, molecular biology, mammalian cell culture, instrumentation, and quantitative/computational analysis. We do not have any required qualifications other than some lab-based research experience beyond coursework (two years would be ideal). This position is suitable for an individual who is looking to gain research experience and further career development.

Research responsibilities would be project-dependent, and would likely include microscopy, data analysis and cell and molecular biology experiments. We are looking for a minimum two-year time commitment. Our lab is interested in the mechanics of G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs). How GPCRs get targeted to the cellular compartments (ie., primary cilia, plasma membrane) that they signal from? What governs GPCR signaling outcomes and how does that influence cellular response? While we know the cognate ligand and G protein for many GPCRs essential for cell signaling, we do not understand the underlying mechanisms that drives the response or how key protein interactions at distinct cellular locations influence those cellular responses. New approaches are needed, and we are using molecular and genetic tools to address these questions. For example, we use CRISPR/Cas9 to modify cellular genomes to examine interactors, we use genetically encoded fluorescent tools to quantify cell signaling, we make primary neuron cultures from genetically modified animals, we use high resolution live imaging to monitor receptor activities in response to ligand, and probe key players using molecular and cell biology tools.

Our research group develops, engineers, optimizes, and applies CRISPR genome editing technologies for biomedical research and to pursue new treatments for human diseases. We utilize protein engineering methods to impart desirable properties into various CRISPR-Cas and non-CRISPR enzymes, base editors, prime editors, and other novel editing platforms. Examples of key properties of these genome editing tools that seek to optimize include their efficiency (on-target activity), safety (reducing off-target activity), utility (targeting range / ability to access the genome), size (to enable delivery), precision (their edit outcome, etc.), and many other characteristics. We then translate these optimized reagents into pre-clinical models and primary cell types to explore their potential to correct disease-causing mutations. The candidate will play an integral role in projects related to genome editing technology development, protein engineering method development, optimization of new tools and applications thereof.

|12/12/2022 18:07:21||UCSF/Moslehi Lab||RA/intern/volunteer position||Mission Bay/CVRI||Internship, Full-time, Part-Time, Volunteer||12/12/2023||Dr. Juan Qin (Juan.firstname.lastname@example.org) or PI Dr. Javid. Moslehi (Javid.email@example.com)||The Moslehi Laboratory at the University of California San Francisco (UCSF) is seeking talented candidates for a research position (RA/intern/volunteer) in a laboratory that is focused on cutting-edge areas in medicine including cardio-oncology immunology. This is an exciting opportunity to join a laboratory at UCSF working on the pathogenesis of heart disease and the cardiac effects of cancer therapies. We are looking for individuals who are passionate about studying the crosstalk between the immune and cardiovascular systems in maintaining the body's health and developing novel treatments for cancer and heart patients. |
The position is ideal for pre-medical students or those considering graduate studies in the health sciences. Our laboratory is located at the Cardiovascular Research Institute (CVRI) in the UCSF Mission Bay campus and has access to state-of-the-art resources and renowned experts in cardiology, oncology, immunology, and bioinformatics. Preference will be given to senior or recent graduates with a background in biology or related area and experience/interest in animal models, as well as an enthusiasm for learning about cardio-immunology and related technical skills or data analysis. The ability to work independently and as part of a team is essential.
The Moslehi Laboratory has an interest in fundamental interactions between the immune and cardiovascular systems. This interest has been partly motivated by the laboratory’s previous work in identifying clinical syndromes of immune-checkpoint inhibitor (ICI)-associated cardiovascular toxicities which include myocarditis, pericarditis, and vasculitis (Johnson et al, NEJM, 2016. Moslehi et al, Lancet, 2018. Salem et al, Lancet Oncology, 2018). We have created pre-clinical models for ICI-associated myocarditis including pharmacologically treated and genetic mouse models (Wei et al, Cancer Discovery, 2021). Our recent study underscores the crucial role of cytotoxic CD8+ T cells, identifies a candidate autoantigen in ICI-MC, and yields new insights into the pathogenesis of ICI toxicity (Axelrod, Nature, 2022).
To apply, please send your CV to Dr. Javid Moslehi at firstname.lastname@example.org
