We have a position for a postdoctoral fellow, preferably graduated within the last two years, to take on a project focused on the role of astrocytes in functional recovery from ischemic stroke, and possible underlying mechanisms around synaptic plasticity and stem cell mediated neurogenesis.
During this project, the postdoc will learn and master stroke in vitro and in vivo models (including MCAO and phothrombosis), will have opportunities to present and promote their work within Jefferson and at national and international meetings, mentor students, and develop their research and communication skills.
· Ph.D. in neuroscience, molecular biology or similar.
· Previous experience in neuroscience.
· Experience performing basic techniques in molecular biology and cell culture and tissue processing.
· Preferred experience in fluorescence imaging.
· Preferred experience handling rodents.
· Preferred experience in rodent surgeries.
· Good communication and presentation skills (oral and written).
Please, send your CV, cover letter and the contact for three references to Dr. Elena Blanco-Suarez firstname.lastname@example.org
