We are seeking an exceptional, motivated, and enthusiastic post-doctoral scholar in the Circuit Repair Laboratory at the Burke Medical Research Institute (BMRI), led by Edmund Hollis II, PhD.
Our laboratory studies the plasticity of motor and sensory systems, principally following spinal cord injury. We are currently looking for a postdoctoral fellow to study the genetic control over axon regeneration, with an emphasis on neuroinflammation. These studies utilize nucleotide sequencing and network analysis to identify conserved, pro-regenerative pathways. Other research areas in the lab focus on the mechanisms of cortical plasticity as well as surgical and molecular approaches to circuit repair using optogenetic and chemogenetic testing of circuit function in combination with more traditional anatomical and functional tools. More details on our lab can be found at: http://burke.weill.cornell.edu/hollis-lab
Preferred qualifications include a Ph.D. in Neuroscience, Genetics and Genomics, Molecular Biology, or Biomedical Sciences, experience with one or more of the following: transcriptomics, DNA/RNA sequencing, CRISPR-Cas, and rodent studies. Compensation includes NIH scale salary, housing stipend, and full health benefits. Please contact Edmund Hollis II, Ph.D. directly at email@example.com.
Burke is an equal opportunity employer with competitive pay scales and benefits.
Additional Salary Information: Commensurate with NIH and Burke-Cornell guidelines
