    Qualified postdoctoral candidates are invited to join the laboratory of Dr. Vassilis Koliatsos at the Division of Neuropathology, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine

    Research focus in the Koliatsos Lab is molecular mechanisms of neural injury and repair, with current emphasis on axonal injury/degeneration and axonal protection using genetic editing and small-molecule strategies. Diseases of interest include traumatic brain injury and neurodegenerative disorders.

    Candidates with a doctoral degree (Ph.D. or M.D. or both) and strong background in cellular/molecular neuroscience, animal models of disease or experimental neuropathology are encouraged to apply. Experience with human stem cell manipulation, neuronal differentiation and related in vitro experiments is essential.

    Johns Hopkins University is an Equal Opportunity Employer and provides a stimulating and collaborative environment for biomedical research. Our lab is affiliated with the Departments of Pathology, Neurology, and Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences. The Baltimore/Washington D.C. region also offers great living and entertainment opportunities.

    To apply please provide a cover letter (with statement of prior experience and research interests), CV, and contact information for 3 references to Dr. Vassilis Koliatsos at

    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 ( 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 (

    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.
