We are seeking a highly motivated postdoctoral fellow to study neuroscience and stem cell biology in the Department of Neurosurgery, and Center for Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine at the University of Texas McGovern Medical School at Houston.
Our laboratory combines interdisciplinary approaches including neuroscience, stem cell biology, genomics and bioinformatics to address fundamental questions in neural cell fate and neural injuries. We provide training opportunities in cutting edge technologies. We are pursuing basic and translational research in neural repair and regenerative medicine (http://jiaqianwulab.org/).
Qualified candidates should:
Have background/experience in neuroscience or stem cell biology, isolating and culturing primary neural cells or stem cells.
Preferably have experimental skills in molecular biology such as molecular cloning, gene knockdown, over-expression, and immunoprecipitation.
Experiences in neurotrauma and transgenic mouse models are preferred.
Demonstrated proficiency as evidenced by relevant publications in peer-reviewed journals and is interested in acquiring new skills.
The candidate will have the opportunity to pursue highly collaborative projects with significant translational impact, alongside with stem cell researchers and clinicians.
Our lab is located in the beautiful new facility of the Brown Foundation Institute of Molecular Medicine in the Texas Medical Center. Texas Medical Center is one of largest medical complex in the world and provides access to the more than 40 member institutions, including two medical schools, four schools of nursing and 13 renowned hospitals. Many scientific and educational opportunities are available in the metropolitan area of Houston as well as cultural, entertainment and sports activities.
