We are recruiting a full-time highly qualified postdoctoral researcher to investigate electrophysiological and cellular mechanisms of brain injury after cardiac arrest with therapeutic intervention such as stem cell therapy and target temperature management, including using in vitro and in vivo models for brain monitoring by EEG and somatosensory evoked potentials.
We are looking for a highly motivated, and career-oriented research individual with excellent publication record, with a PhD in neuroscience, cell biology or a related field, or neuroengineering and with hands-on experience in translational animal models. Excellent oral and written communication skills are necessary.
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.
Please visit the lab's website for more information: http://www.medschool.umaryland.edu/xjia/
Proven superior knowledge and expertise, as demonstrated by a solid publication record, in two or more of these areas are desirable: a) basic experimental or translational neuroscience research interests in ischemia brain injury or stroke, b) therapeutic hypothermia, c) stem cell therapy, d) In vivo electrophysiology, signal processing or brain imaging (PET or MRI). 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 brain disease. 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.
