    Post-Doctoral Position Available at the University of Pennsylvania Center for Brain Injury and Repair

    A postdoctoral position is available in the NIH funded laboratory of Douglas H. Smith, M.D. in the Department of Neurosurgery at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania (https://www.med.upenn.edu/smithlab/). The Penn Center for Brain Injury and Repair has been in existence for more than 30 years and comprises a multi-disciplinary research team studying the acute and chronic effects of neurotrauma and neural repair mechanisms

    The main focus of the lab is investigating the mechanisms driving both acute and chronic outcomes following traumatic brain injury. We employ a range of models and techniques including: an in vitro injury model, small and large translational animal TBI models, post-mortem human tissue, immunofluorescence, histopathology, biochemistry, and molecular biology.

    The preferred applicant will have experience in some of the aforementioned models and techniques. A strong publication record, understanding of research methodology, excellent writing and interpersonal skills are desirable. Applicants should have a broad neuroscience background as well as an interest in neurotrauma, including mechanisms of axonal injury and neurodegeneration. A Ph.D, M.D., or equivalent degree is required.

    The University of Pennsylvania offers a diverse research environment with many collaborative opportunities.

    To apply, please send and updated copy of your CV to Jean-Pierre Dollé (jeanpierre.dolle@gmail.com).

    A postdoctoral position is available in the Lafrenaye lab to work with a translational pig model of traumatic brain injury. Investigations will focus on social and sensory changes following diffuse brain injury and how these changes are associated with microglial-axonal interaction alterations. This postdoc will work with a collaborative research group (both in the lab, at VCU, and at external institutions) to help guide these studies, perform animal surgeries, histological and molecular processing/assessment, and single-cell RNA sequencing for experiments of traumatic brain injury pathology in a higher order translational model. The ideal candidate will have experience with animal surgery, microglia assessments (molecular and/or histological), RNA sequencing/bioinformatics, and/or assessments of diffuse brain-injury-induced pathologies. The duration of the postdoc is dependent upon funding.

    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.

    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.


    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.
