  • Position Description: The Department of Cellular and Integrative Physiology in the Long School of Medicine at the University of Texas Health San Antonio is seeking highly motivated postdoctoral fellows to engage in ongoing studies dedicated to the intersection between CNS circuits and metabolism biology during brain repair. Our current efforts test how metabolic co-morbidities of stroke impact long-term behavioral and cellular stroke recovery. This research uses the corticospinal motor system as a model cellular pathway to better understand patterns of cellular disruption and adaptation after stroke. We seek to evaluate brain recovery in an integrative fashion by testing outcomes at the level of individual cell, cell network, and whole-animal physiology and behavior. The overall goal of these endeavors is to identify novel therapeutic targets and strategies that provide meaningful long-term behavioral improvement after brain insults including stroke. Proposed studies will use whole-cell patch clamp recording techniques to identify changes in neuronal circuitry and excitability in motor cortex during stroke recovery. Experience with this technique is helpful but not required as the laboratory can provide complete training.  
  • Position Requirements: Applicants should have a PhD and/or MD in neuroscience or related fields. Applicants who anticipate to defend their thesis in the near future are also encouraged to apply. We are seeking individuals with a demonstrated record of careful experimental methods, high quality publications, excellent written and communication skills and an ability to design and perform research in an independent manner.
  • How to Apply: In the email application please include a cover letter that describes research experience and states career goals, CV with publications, and detailed contact information for 3 references to:
