A mentored postdoctoral position is available immediately in the laboratory of Dr. Marc Halterman (Department of Neurology, Center for Neural Development & Disease, University of Rochester Medical Center). Goals of the project include the development of neuroprotective approaches to limit reperfusion injury after cardiac arrest and focal ischemic stroke. Studies will utilize a range of molecular techniques (qPCR, IHC, ICC, multiwell assays, FACS) and both in vitro (OGD, live cell imaging) and in vivo models of cerebral ischemia.
Candidates must hold a Ph.D. and have a strong background in cellular and molecular neuroscience. Emphasis is on proficiency conducting stroke studies in rodents, research productivity, and strong spoken and written English skills. Salary will follow the NIH scale for postdoctoral fellows. Candidates interested in applying for this postdoctoral position should submit: 1) a cover letter, 2) description of past research, skills, and interests, 3) curriculum vitae, and 4) name, institution affiliation, email and phone number of three references. Please email the above information as a single PDF file to:
Mrs. Susan Brightman:
The University of Rochester Medical Center is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer and strongly encourages applications from women and minority candidates.
The Center for Neural Development and Disease is home to seven Principal Investigators (PIs), all of whom serve as mentors to graduate students in the Interdepartmental Graduate Program in Neuroscience. Working in collaboration with research faculty, post-doctoral fellows, graduate students and lab technicians, Center PIs are carrying out research programs that explore a variety of issues relevant... to neural development and disease. Active research in the Center includes the study of fundamental neural mechanisms in simple model organisms, research on protection against of neural insults (including HIV infection, stroke and neurodegeneration), studies on the mechanisms and treatment of neuromuscular and neoplastic disorders, and work on promoting recovery after traumatic brain injury.
