We are recruiting a highly qualified postdoctoral researcher to investigate 1). electrophysiological and cellular mechanisms of brain injury after cardiac arrest with target temperature management, including using in vitro and in vivo models for brain monitoring by EEG, somatosensory evoked potentials and neuronal spikes; 2). stem cell therapy after peripheral nerve injury or bone defect, including using in vitro and in vivo models for nerve or bone regeneration.
The position is available for immediate occupancy for a 1-2 year appointment, contingent on background experience, performance, and continued availability of funding. Individuals who are interested should submit a detailed CV, a brief statement including a research plan, interests and skills, and the names of three references, and a short description of their doctoral training and future research goals to Prof. Xiaofeng Jia, MD, PhD, Department of Neurosurgery, Orthopaedics, University of Maryland School of Medicine, Email: firstname.lastname@example.org ; http://medschool.umaryland.edu/xjia
We are looking for a highly motivated, and career-oriented research individual with excellent publication record, with a PhD in cell biology, neuroscience or a related field, or neuroengineering and with hands-on experience in translational animal models. Experience in standard tissue culture, immunobiochemistry, immunocytochemistry, RT-PCR, and small animal surgery is required. Excellent oral and written communication skills and the ability to work independently and in collaboration are necessary. Willingness to learn new techniques is essential.
Cell biology and proven superior knowledge and expertise, as demonstrated by a solid publication record, in two or more of these areas are desirable: a) In vivo electrophysiology, b) translational animal models, c) basic experimental or translational neuroscience research interests in ischemia brain injury, peripheral nerve injury, bone regeneration or, d) stem cell biology, e) neurobehavioral testing; f) therapeutic hypothermia, or g) signal processing or brain imaging (MRI or PET). A successful candidate will possess interdisciplinary skills and hands-on experience in conducting cellular and animal studies based on a detailed understanding of neuroscience of related disease and repair. The postdoctoral researcher will assist in planning experiments, methods development, and will conduct productive research. Strong technical skills and capabilities to do independent research would be most desirable.
