Postdoctoral Research Positon to Study Peripheral Nerve and Musculoskeletal Regeneration Through Drug Repurposing.

A Postdoctoral positon is available in the Center for Musculoskeletal Research and the Stem Cell Regenerative Medicine Institute at the University of Rochester Medical Center working with Drs. John Elfar and Mark Noble. The successful candidate will perform in vivo and in vitro experiments to support a clinically translatable pool of data in peripheral neurotrauma.  Work will involve histological analyses on nerve and muscle tissue in addition to in vivo and in vitro experiments on nerve and muscle.  These projects build on specialized expertise in these areas.  Specifically, the successful applicant will be involved in the assessment of nerve and muscle function and gene expression studies using quantitative PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction) and perform in situ hybridization experiments.  Specific work on muscle strength testing will be necessary.  The successful candidate must have a MD or PhD degree in biomedical science with published experience in any of these fields: molecular biology, cell biology, tissue engineering, muscle physiology, peripheral nerve regeneration.  Applicants should have a history of prior ownership and stewardship of complete projects from planning to writing and acceptance for publication and should be well versed and able to continue such work.   A track record suggesting appropriate independent performance is a must.  Successful applicants should be ready for direct interview if invited.  Prior experience with neurobiology, small animal surgery is a plus.  To apply: please send C.V. and names of three references to:
