Location: Burke Medical Research Institute, White Plains, NY
Employer: Jian Zhong, Ph.D.
Job type: Full time
Position: Postdoctoral fellow
The Laboratory of Molecular Regeneration and Neuroimaging at the Burke-Cornell Medical Research Institute is seeking an enthusiastic and self-motivated postdoctoral researcher to join our multi-disciplinary team dedicated to uncover the signaling mechanisms of axon growth and regeneration. The major focus of our lab is on developing and in vivo testing of strategies to promote axon regeneration and functional recovery in mouse models of spinal cord injury and glaucoma. Further projects address the circuitry of pain, and pathological mechanisms underlying the multiple phenotypes of neuro-cardio-facio-cutaneous syndromes.
Our laboratory is equipped with state-of-the-art technology, including a 2-photon confocal microscope, with access to state of the art animal housing on the Burke campus and numerous core facilities at Burke and the Weill Cornell campus in NYC.
Successful candidates will be strongly self-motivated and have excellent organization and communication skills. Experience with mouse genetics, spinal cord injury surgery and/or in vivo imaging would be most welcome. Qualified applicants should have a Ph.D. in Neuroscience, Biochemistry, Molecular Biology or related fields at the time of employment.
Interested applicants should email their biosketch and a one page cover letter outlining their research interests, along with contact information for at least two references, to Professor Jian Zhong by email: email@example.com.
Review process will start immediately. Selected candidates will be invited for on-site interviews in May/June 2017.
