Post-doctoral fellow positions are available to work on a project for neural stem cell therapy for stroke or Alzheimer’s Disease (AD). The project involves multi-institutional collaborative effort. We use a multidisciplinary approach that involves molecular biology, biochemical techniques, confocal microscopy and stem cell transplantation into rodent models of stroke, vascular dementia, or AD. We study the effects of aging and the role of stem cells on neurovascular repair and seek to identify combinatory therapies strategies that will synergize with stem cell modalities (pharmacological and cell therapy).
Preferred candidates will be a Ph.D., M.D. or both with relevant background either in stem cell biology, AD, or stroke research with rodent/mouse models. Required techniques are stroke surgery, stereotaxic injections, tail vein, and inferior vena cava (IVC) injections, confocal microscopy, RT-PCR, western blotting and relevant behavioral studies for stroke or AD. Candidates must be proficient in data analysis and writing manuscripts for publications.
