An outstanding and highly-motivated post-doctoral fellow is sought to participate in translational research on intraventricular hemorrhage of premature infants. The ideal candidate should have fewer than five years of postdoctoral experience and a publication record in the field of developmental neurobiology or neuroscience.
Our lab is focused on understanding the pathogenesis of intraventricular hemorrhage (IVH) in preterm infants and developing strategies to minimize brain injury in the survivors of IVH. Ongoing interests include evaluating glutamatergic and GABAergic neurogenesis in preterm infants with IVH and employing genetic and pharmacological approach to restore production of cortical neurons and interneurons and neurological function in premature rabbits with IVH. We are also working on the blood brain barrier and meningeal lymphatics in rabbit model of IVH. The lab uses autopsy samples from premature infants with and without IVH in addition to the preterm rabbit model of IVH.
Commonly used techniques include Immunohistochemistry, confocal microscopy, 2 photon microscopy, stereological quantification of neural cells, Western blot analyses, real time qPCR, slice culture, neuronal migration studies, viral gene transfer, flow-cytometry, magnetic bead isolation of cells single-cell RNA seq and neurobehavior. The lab is currently funded by two RO1 NIH grants.
Please contact Praveen.firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com with inquiries and applications. Send statement of interest, CV, and the names of three people for letters of recommendation. Position is available immediately.
