    Description:
    An entry level postdoctoral position is available in the Laboratory of Molecular Biology at the New Jersey VA Medical Center (just West of NYC) to investigate the molecular basis of disorders of the central nervous system with the goal of identifying targets for therapeutic intervention. Mechanisms important to the health of neurons will be elucidated with human samples, model systems, and neuronal cultures.

    The successful candidate will manage research with state of the art methodologies including assays of gene expression and bioinformatics. These studies of regulatory interactions seek to identify susceptibility factors involved in CNS dysfunction that we can monitor with our home cage behavioral system (PhenoMaster) and other tests. The knowledge gained will advance work to improve the outcome of Veterans and others with conditions such as traumatic brain injury, Gulf War Illness, Alzheimer's disease, or ALS.

    Qualifications:
    The applicant must have a recent doctorate and experience with mouse models, molecular biology, and tissue culture.

    This position will involve clearance by the Department of Veterans Affairs, a Federal Agency, requiring US Citizenship.

    To Apply:
    Please send a curriculum vitae, status of US Citizenship, contact information for three references, and where the posting was seen, to Dr. Bruce Citron at bruce.citron@rutgers.edu, Director, Laboratory of Molecular Biology, VA New Jersey Health Care System, Research and Development, 385 Tremont Avenue, East Orange, NJ 07018 and Professor of Pharmacology, Physiology, and Neuroscience, Rutgers- New Jersey Medical School.

  • 2022-03-22 3:07 PM | NNS Office (Administrator)

    Position Description:

    The primary role played by the postdoctoral fellow is to independently compare how secondary insults after traumatic brain injury not only worsen cognition and motor activity but also increase damage to lungs, gut, and kidney. The main secondary injury we study is simulated flight, focusing on the substantial reduction in barometric pressure that occurs in aircraft cabins during aeromedical transport. We also analyze the effects of different inspired oxygen concentrations on mortality and morbidity in these paradigms. Thus, our research is both highly translational and grounded in molecular mechanisms of cell death and dysfunction.

    Laboratory Group: The group consists of three faculty members, two postdoctoral fellows, a Laboratory Manager, an MS student, and several Research Specialists. The principal investigator has over 35 years of experience in biochemical-based research directed primarily at ischemic and traumatic brain injury with emphasis on altered mitochondrial energy metabolism and oxidative stress.

    Qualifications:

    PhD or MD with at least two years of neuroscience experience using quantitative neuropathology and immunohistochemistry. Extensive experience using quantitative microscopy is required. Additional experience with lab techniques such as qPCR, immunoblots, and magnetic resonance imaging and spectroscopy is welcome. Experience with small animal behavior assays is also helpful.

    To Apply:

    Submit/Email a CV and contact information for three references to

    Postdoctoral Positions in Neurotrauma at the University of Maryland, School of Medicine Shock, Trauma and Anesthesiology Research (STAR) Center

    Description: NIH funded positions (2-3 positions) are available immediately to investigate the cellular and molecular mechanisms of neurological dysfunction following spinal cord injury (SCI) and traumatic brain injury (TBI), with the ultimate goal of developing potentially therapeutic strategies. In particular, we are interested in pathological mechanisms including disruption of autophagy and lysosomal pathway, astrocytic TrkB.T1, microglial Hv1 channel, NOX2, extracellular vesicles (EVs), and their contribution to neuroinflammation and neurodegeneration in both acute CNS trauma and aging conditions including chronic SCI/TBI and Alzheimer’s disease and related dementia (AD/ADRD). Specifically, we focus on: (1) Demonstrating the function and the mechanisms of autophagy-lysosomal pathway in aged mice or mice aging after SCI. (2) Elucidating molecular mechanisms responsible for SCI-induced brain neuroinflammation and neurodegeneration. (3) Investigating the role of plasma and tissue extracellular vesicles (EVs) in secondary injury after CNS trauma. (4) Examining the function and mechanism of voltage-gated proton channels Hv1 on neuroinflammation and neuropathic pain after experimental SCI and TBI. (5) Elucidating the inflammatory mechanisms underlying olfactory dysfunction in TBI model and its correlation with late-onset dementia-related pathology. Multidisciplinary approaches include rodent models of SCI and TBI, diverse behavioral evaluation, characterization of EVs and their cargo content, quantitative image analysis, as well as molecular and cellular biology. Additional information about our projects is available at: https://www.medschool.umaryland.edu/profiles/Wu-Junfang/ http://www.medschool.umaryland.edu/Anesthesiology/Research/Junfang-Wu-BM-PhD/
