OPEN DATE: Immediately opening.
Postdoctoral fellow and scientist positions are immediately available at Dr. Zezong GU’s Laboratory at the Department of Pathology & Anatomical Sciences at the University of Missouri-Columbia School of Medicine (MIZZOU Med) in the study of open-field blast injuries. The DoD- and VHA-funded projects will use multi-disciplinary approaches to seek understanding molecular mechanisms that contribute to chronic neurodegenerative disorders after mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI).
OPEN DATE: Open
Postdoctoral position available immediately in the Translational Neurotrauma Laboratory of Dr. Michelle LaPlaca at Georgia Institute of Technology, in Atlanta, GA, in the area of pre-clinical neurotrauma. The NIH funded project entails investigating lipid biomarkers in the brain and various biofluids and efflux pathways (blood brain barrier and the glymphatic system) following mild-moderate traumatic brain injury. A Ph.D. degree in neuroscience, physiology, biochemistry, bioengineering or related field is required. Experience in neuroscience, mammalian experimentation, and data analysis is necessary to be successful in this project. Experience in data science, biomarkers, and mass spectroscopy is beneficial, but not necessary. Applicants are expected to have an excellent track record in animal surgery, animal physiology, behavioral and histopathological outcomes, lab organization, team science, and mentoring. A minimum 2-year commitment is preferred.
OPEN DATE: August 1, 2020 (starting date flexible during Covid-19 pandemic)
The Liu Lab in the Dept. of Neurology at the UC Davis is seeking two post-doctoral scholars. The positions are renewable yearly for maximal five years due to funding status and project progresses. Scholars who meet the qualifications stated below are encouraged to apply.
Successful candidates are expected to participate in animal & molecular studies of an NIH-funded research program that leverages cancer elements, such as oncogenes (e.g. Src, Rock) or tumor suppressors (e.g. miR-122, miR-125b), to develop new drugs for treatment of brain injury, including traumatic brain injury, hemorrhagic stroke, and ischemic stroke.
The successful candidates will learn microRNA therapeutics. They will have opportunities to involve a collaborative project with local BSL3 facilities in study of Covid-19 associated brain injury using animal samples after SARS-COV-2 inactivation. They will also have opportunities to practice in a start-up company with a mission of new drug development.
The College of Medicine, Department of Neuroscience is looking to hire two tenure-track faculty with research expertise focused in traumatic central nervous system injury (brain or spinal cord). These positions may be at the rank of Assistant, Associate or Full Professor.
We are seeking a full-time, post-doctoral fellow to serve 2 years as the awardee of the UCLA BIRC Program.
The appointment would require a 2 year commitment. The fellow will be studying translational mechanisms of concussion in experimental models and work closely with our clinical researchers. The postdoctoral fellow must have a PhD or MD with prior experience working with animal behavioral tasks, animal surgery and traumatic brain injury. Experience with mitochondrial or metabolism is not required but would be a strength. We are seeking an independent, motivated individual with excellent organizational, interpersonal, and communication skills. We are looking for a self-motivated postdoc interested in being exposed to multiple technique, exposure to translational research and opportunities to travel and present research findings.
