Post-doctoral fellow

UCLA Sch Med
Los Angeles, California

Closing date
Jul 7, 2024

UCLA Neuroscience. The Carmichael lab is hiring a post-doctoral fellow in the Departments of Neurology and Neurobiology at UCLA, in the David Geffen School of Medicine. The lab studies molecular and cellular mechanisms of neural repair and recovery in stroke and dementia. We use mouse models of stroke and vascular dementia and multi-disciplinary systems of experiments to identify how neurons and glia react to the initial damage, and then initiate programs of repair. This current project involves the study of progenitor cells in the brain (termed “OPCs”), and how they respond to stroke and participate in tissue repair. The studies look at how OPCs respond to stroke in several mouse models, and engage in differentiation, immune responses and tissue barrier formation. These studies employ advanced tools, including viral gene delivery, two-photon imaging and scRNAseq.  The lab is expert in these approaches and provides a supportive environment for tool development and application by post-doctoral fellows and graduate students in the lab. This post-doctoral position will have this project as the central function, and “ownership” of this project for intellectual development and career advancement. The Carmichael lab is highly collaborative and situated among many neuroscience and stem cell biology labs, creating a rich and interactive environment for training and career progression.

The successful candidate will have a PhD or concrete plans for the completion of the PhD degree. Experience with mouse models of neurological diseases and molecular biological skills at the lab bench are highly encouraged but not required.

Go Bruins! UCLA is a place of active academic, sports and recreational opportunities.  A beautiful location in Los Angeles, great benefits and lab space in a modern building highlight a great training opportunity and unmatched environment
