The laboratory of Fuzheng Guo, PhD, at the Department of Neurology, UC Davis Medical Center and the Institute for Pediatric Regenerative Medicine (IPRM) of Shriners hospital, is seeking highly self-motivated and creative postdoc researchers for NIH and foundation grants in the lab. Research interest in the Guo lab centers on the molecular mechanisms of glial cell development, injury and regeneration in the central nervous system, with a particular focus on CNS myelination, demyelination, and remyelination in demyelinating disorders. The research projects of successful applicants will be fitted with the laboratory interests. For example, one of the positions will be dedicated to studying molecular interventions that promote oligodendrocyte regeneration and myelin repair using mouse models of hypoxia-ischemia-induced neonatal white matter injury.
The successful candidates should have at least one first-author peer-review paper published in prestigious journals of biology or medical field. Prior work experience in animal models of diseases (demyelination models, hypoxia-ischemia models) and glial cell characterization is required. Expertise in electrophysiological recording of CNS glia or neurons is advantageous since the Guo lab has set up an updated electrophysiology rig.
Very competitive salary and benefits will be provided and commensurate with experience and is above the NIH standards. The position(s) will remain open until filled.
Please go to https://www.guo-laboratory.org/ for the lab details.
Interested applicants should forward (1) updated curriculum vitae and (2) contact information of 3 references directly to the Principal Investigator, Fuzheng Guo, PhD at fzguo(AT)ucdavis.edu. Please indicate "Postdoc Application" in the subject line of email applications.
