The Laboratory of Molecular Regeneration and Neuroimaging at the Burke Medical Research Institute seeks two capable and enthusiastic Postdoctoral Fellows. Our lab is focused on understanding the signaling mechanisms of axon growth and regeneration, and on developing and testing new 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 the pathological mechanisms underlying the neurological phenotypes of neuro-cardio-facio-cutaneous syndromes.
The Fellows will join a laboratory equipped with state-of-the-art technology for molecular biology and rodent phenotype analysis, and access to excellent core facilities through the Tri-Institutional Resources program at Weill Cornell Medicine, Memorial Sloan Kettering and Rockefeller University in Manhattan.
- The successful candidates will have experience in molecular biology and generation of expression or knock-down constructs, and/or have a strong background in current techniques of structural and functional in vivo imaging.
- He or she will also be strongly self-motivated, well organized, and have excellent communication skills.
- Candidates should have a Ph.D. in Neuroscience, Molecular Biology, Biochemistry or related fields at the time of employment.
