The Laboratory of Molecular Regeneration and Neuroimaging at the Burke Neurological Institute is seeking an enthusiastic, self-motivated postdoctoral researcher to join our multi-disciplinary team dedicated to uncovering the signaling mechanisms underlying axon growth and regeneration (http://burke.weill.cornell.edu/zhong-lab). The major focus of our lab is on developing and in vivo testing of strategies to promote axon regeneration and functional recovery in mouse models of spinal cord injury and glaucoma. Further projects address the circuitry of pain, and pathological mechanisms underlying the neurological phenotypes of neuro-cardio-facio-cutaneous syndromes.
The Burke Neurological Institute is a research entity affiliated with Weill Cornell Medicine, the Medical School of Cornell University. We provide ample training opportunities, a highly collaborative research environment and state-of-the-art facilities to the next generation of neuroscientists.
Successful candidates will have a strong motivation to succeed in science, as well as excellent organization and communication skills. Experience with mouse genetics, spinal cord injury and/or in vivo imaging would be very welcome. Qualified applicants should hold a Ph.D. in Neuroscience, Biochemistry, Molecular Biology or related fields at the time of employment.
Candidates should submit their CV and a one-page cover letter outlining their research interests, along with contact information for at least two references, to Dr. Jian Zhong (firstname.lastname@example.org). Review of applications will start immediately and continue until the position is filled.
