About Us

Join Us

The Bailey Lab started in July of 2018 and we are eager to build a fun, inquisitive, and collaborative research group interested in developing AAV-based therapeutics for neurological disorders. We are currently accepting applications for technicians, graduate students, and postdoctoral positions. We welcome those with diverse backgrounds.

Researchers with expertise in cell biology, biochemistry, molecular biology, virology, and animal studies are encouraged to apply.

Postdoctoral Position

A postdoctoral training position is available in our laboratory, using adeno-associated virus (AAV) gene therapy for the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases. Our laboratory has several exciting gene therapy projects with the eventual goal of translating research to a Phase I clinical trial. The position involves specialized work in cultured cells and small animals.

Candidates must hold a Ph.D. and/or M.D. degree and have:

  • A strong background in biochemistry, cell biology, molecular biology, or a related discipline
  • A record of publication and grant writing
  • Scientific curiosity and the desire and ability to work independently

Experience with disease models and genomic approaches (i.e. RNA-seq) are a plus.

Information on our postdoctoral training program and benefits can be found in UTSW's Postdoc Handbook or at http://www.utsouthwestern.edu/postdocs.

To apply, please email Dr. Bailey with your CV and a brief description of your scientific interests and research goals. rachel.bailey@utsouthwestern.edu

Graduate Students

Potential graduate students at UT Southwestern apply and are accepted via the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences. Once admitted, they typically take the one-semester Core Course and join individual Ph.D. programs during the second semester.

If you are already a graduate student at UT Southwestern and are interested in joining the lab, contact Dr. Bailey. rachel.bailey@utsouthwestern.edu
