Lorraine Iacovitti, PhD, Research Director of the Neurovascular Center of the Vickie and Jack Farber Institute for Neuroscience at Thomas Jefferson University, seeks outstanding candidates for a postdoctoral position working in stroke and neurovascular disease. Applicants must have a Ph.D. or an M.D./Ph.D. degree with basic research experience in a relevant discipline such as blood-brain-barrier, ischemia-reperfusion, neurogenesis and regeneration. As part of the Neurovascular Center, postdoctoral fellows are expected to develop a research project that complements the variety of existing programs in basic, translational and clinical neurosciences.
The Vickie and Jack Farber Institute for Neuroscience at Jefferson was established with a generous gift from the Farber Family Foundation, Inc., and first opened its doors in early 2002. The Institute mission is the discovery and translation of scientific advancements into innovative treatments for diseases of the central and peripheral nervous system. We have brought together our globally recognized researchers and physicians from neurosurgery, neurology, psychiatry and neuroscience to create Disease Centers working as integrated research and clinical strategic programs to treat brain and spine disorders.
