The Department of Anesthesiology at the University of Virginia seeks motivated postdoctoral Research Associates and/or Research Scientist to conduct research in the laboratory of Dr. Zhiyi Zuo. The Zuo’s lab has two focuses: ischemic brain injury and perioperative neurocognitive disorders. Various animal models are used in the studies of ischemic brain injury. We are interested in determining molecular mechanism for aging and metabolic syndrome to decrease ischemic brain tolerance. Perioperative neurocognitive disorders are common in patients after surgery. How aging and other comorbidities contribute to the development of perioperative neurocognitive disorders is actively studied.
We are looking for postdoctoral Research Associates and/or Research Scientist who have experience in creating ischemic brain models in animals, animal behavior testing, biochemical analyses and imaging analyses. The successful candidates must have a PhD or MD/PhD in neuroscience, genetics, molecular biology or microbiology and are skillful in animal handling. UVA offers a rich collaborative environment for postdoctoral associates.
The positions will remain open until filled. The selected applicants will be required to complete a background check prior to their first day of employment per University policy.
For additional information about the position, please contact Dr. Zhiyi Zuo at email@example.com.
