Postdoctoral Research Position to Study New Treatments for Spinal Cord Injury

A Postdoctoral position is available in the Department of Biomedical Genetics and the Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine Institute at the University of Rochester Medical Center working with Drs. Mark Noble and Chris Proschel. The successful candidate will perform in vivo experiments related to development of new treatments for spinal cord injury.    Work will involve behavioral analyses and  histological analyses on injured spinal cords.   These projects build on specialized expertise in these areas.  Specifically, the successful applicant will be involved in analysis of motor function, cellular and molecular changes at the tissue level required to study recovery from experimental spinal cord injury.   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, central nervous system injury, 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:
