Post-doctoral Position in Molecular Spinal Cord Biology
National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke
March 26, 2018
Full Time - Experienced
Academic / Research
The Spinal Circuits and Plasticity Unit at the National Institutes of Health, led by Dr. Levine, has a postdoctoral position available to use cutting-edge techniques to investigate how gene expression controls neuronal function and plasticity in the spinal cord.
We seek to uncover the basic molecular and cellular basis of spinal cord plasticity using a wide variety of techniques, including single cell sequencing, epigenetic and gene expression analysis, mouse genetics, cell culture, spinal cord injury, and mouse behavior, but other areas of relevant expertise are welcome including bio-informatics and computational analysis. Our lab is in the Porter Neuroscience Research Center, a world-class center for basic and translational neuroscience with outstanding facilities and a unique funding environment on the main campus of NIH. More information about the lab can be found at: https://neuroscience.nih.gov/ninds/Faculty/Profile/ariel-levine.aspx.
To apply, please email (1) a CV including publications, (2) a letter summarizing research accomplishments and interests, and (3) three letters of reference to Dr. Levine.
The NIH is dedicated to building a diverse community in its training and employment programs. DHHS and NIH are Equal Opportunity Employers.
Requirements include (1) a strong background in molecular biology and/or neurobiology, (2) a record of publication, (3) having a PhD, MD, or MD/PhD (or being a candidate for one of these degrees). Salary, benefits, and travel opportunities will be commensurate with experience and qualifications.
