A funded postdoctoral position is available for highly motivated candidates in the laboratory of Dr. Cavalli at Washington University in Saint Louis, Department of Neuroscience. The Cavalli lab focuses on elucidating the cellular and molecular mechanisms regulating peripheral nerve regeneration and relate this information to the lack of regenerative capacity in the central nervous system. We are pursuing our studies on the transcriptional and epigenetics mechanisms regulating axon regeneration, with the goal to develop new strategies for spinal cord and optic nerve repair. Using human tissue, the Cavalli lab also determines if findings made in the mouse model system are relevant to human physiology.

The Cavalli laboratory is in an academic setting in the Department of Neuroscience at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, an internationally recognized research institution consistently ranked among the top five medical schools in the country. The extreme collegiality of Washington University combined with the large Neuroscience Community and extensive infrastructural and core facility support creates a dynamic research environment. The St. Louis area combines the attractions of a major city with family-friendly and affordable lifestyle opportunities.

This funded position is immediately available and comes with a competitive salary and a generous benefit package (http://medschoolhr.wustl.edu). Candidates should hold a recent PhD in life sciences with less than 3 years of prior post-doctoral experience. Interested candidates should send their applications (statement of motivation and research interests and experience, C.V. and the name of three referees) directly via email to Valeria Cavalli, PhD, cavalli@wustl.edu.
