Two Postdoctoral/Research Associate Positions are available effective December 1, 2019, in the laboratory of Dr. Zena Vexler’s at the University California San Francisco
One Postdoctoral fellow/Research Associate will study the role of microvesicles and exosomes derived from microglial cells as messengers of brain injury and repair after stroke. Studies will be performed in the in vivo stroke model in neonatal mice and in microglial cells acutely isolated from injured brains.
Another Postdoctoral fellow/Research Associate will examine effects of neonatal stroke on reorganization of neuronal-microglial communications and signalling in relation to long-term functional outcomes.
I will attend SFN this year but will not be interviewing via Neurojobs Center. Meeting with interested candidates in person during the meeting would be preferred.
Positions require PhD in neuroscience/pharmacology or in related disciplines, hands-on experience with animal experimentation, development of biochemical assays and flow cytometry, and familiarity with stroke mechanisms.
Additional Salary Information: Salary is based on years of postdoctoral experience
