One postdoctoral position is immediately available in the Department of Neurology laboratory at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine. We are looking for motivated individual to work on NIH/NINDS-funded projects on exploring molecular mechanisms of ischemic stroke and vascular dementia.
Research Projects: The laboratory uses state-of-the-art cell biology, molecular biology, biochemistry, pharmacology, morphology, imaging, behavior and transgenic animal approaches to study the molecular mechanisms and therapeutic strategies for cerebrovascular and neural dysfunction after ischemic stroke and vascular dementia. The candidate will participate in projects to determine the functional roles of microRNAs, lncRNAs, and several transcription factors in the neurovascular injury and repair following ischemic stroke and vascular dementia.
Qualifications: Ph.D. or equivalent in basic or clinical Neuroscience. Experience in experimental stroke/vascular dementia mouse models, histological, and neurobehavioral technique is preferred. Strong interest in ischemic stroke/ vascular dementia research, English proficiency, and strong oral and written communication skills are expected. The ideal candidate must have a solid publication record and evidence of excellent skills in neuroscience. Self-motivated candidates are encouraged to e-mail their resumes, a letter starting their research interests, and contact information (e-mail address and phone number) of three references to Dr. Kejie Yin (email@example.com). Applications should be sent as a single PDF email attachment.
