Department of Neurological Sciences at the University of Vermont Larner College of Medicine in the lab of Marilyn Cipolla. The Cipolla Lab studies cerebral hemodynamics and vascular function during ischemic stroke with a focus on translational aspects including reperfusion injury and collaterals. We also study cerebral hemodynamics and vascular function during pregnancy and pregnancy-related complications that affect the brain and maternal cerebral circulation, including preeclampsia and stroke. A variety of in vivo and in vitro experimental approaches are used to study brain blood flow, cerebrovascular reactivity, vascular remodeling, and how these relate to brain injury during ischemic stroke. We are also interested in co-morbidities and systemic vascular remodeling, including large vessel stiffness during hypertension and hypercholesterolemia, and how these conditions affect the cerebral microcirculation. Some studies focus on hippocampal arteriole function and slice electrophysiology are ongoing in an effort to understand how pregnancy and preeclampsia affect cognitive functioning during pregnancy and postpartum. As PI, I am committed to mentoring on all levels and in all areas, especially work-life balance. I strive to create a supportive, flexible and productive work environment. The University of Vermont has had a long-standing history in vascular biology research that has produced seminal contributions in the field, creating an outstanding and rich scientific environment. Applicants with experience in fields of vascular biology, neuroscience, pharmacology and/or physiology are encouraged to apply. Qualified candidates will hold a PhD, MD/PhD, or equivalent in physiology, pharmacology, neuroscience or a related field and be highly motivated for a career in science. This position is funded by the NIH and a competitive salary will be offered. Prior experience in vascular biology and/or animal models of vascular disease (hypertension, stroke, etc.) is desirable. Please send cover letter, CV and list of 3 references with contact information by email to: Marilyn J. Cipolla, PhD (email: Marilyn.Cipolla@uvm.edu). Women and minorities are encouraged to apply.

About University of Vermont
The Cipolla Lab occupies ample lab space on the beautiful campus of the University of Vermont with incredible views of Lake Champlain and the Green Mountains. The University of Vermont is the only research university in the state and is Vermont’s land-grant institution, enrolling close to 13,000 students, including more than 10,000 undergraduate and 1,300 graduate students, 450 medical students, 34 post-baccalaureate certificate and 950 non-degree students. UVM combines faculty-student relationships typically found in a liberal arts college with the scholarship and resources of a major research institution. The University is home to seven undergraduate schools and colleges, an honors college, a graduate college, a medical school, and a division of continuing education. The University has attracted an increasingly distinguished faculty and has steadily built its research enterprise, with sponsored projects now averaging $120M per year. The Cipolla Lab has its home in the prestigious Larner College of Medicine, established in 1822. The Larner College of Medicine very much reflects the attributes of UVM. It combines the ethos of a major research university with the innovative, persona...lized education of a smaller institution. The University of Vermont has had a long-standing history in vascular biology research that has produced seminal contributions in the field, creating an outstanding and rich scientific environment. This continues today and affords outstanding training opportunities.
