Postdoctoral researcher in glial function and/or neurogenesis
We are looking for highly motivated, independent, interactive, and career-oriented research fellows with a PhD in neuroscience or immunology. Strong cellular/molecular biology and neuroscience or immunology training is required. Candidates must have a strong publication record and proven research ability in the following areas: primary cell culture (neurons, glia, or macrophages), neural stem cell culture, cell-cell interactions, flow cytometry, neurogenesis-related experiments, neurobehavioral testing, and small animal surgery. Other lab experience is helpful but not required: microRNA, exosomes, angiogenesis-related experiments, and brain imaging (MRI, PET, or bioluminescence). A successful candidate should possess interdisciplinary lab skills, have good English and communication skills, be able to supervise PhD students, and perform team-oriented as well as independent work. We offer multifaceted scientific projects, a place in a committed team, and strong scientific collaborations. NIH funding for the position with a minimum of a 2-year appointment is currently available.
Lab interests: 1) neurovascular inflammation and glial function; 2) neurogenesis/ synaptogenesis/ angiogenesis. The research projects of our team focus on these targets with the primary goals of discovering new therapeutic strategies for intracerebral hemorrhage or traumatic brain injury and elucidating the underlying cellular and molecular mechanisms.
