A Postdoctoral position in molecular and translational neuroscience is available immediately to study pathophysiology of dystonia and to develop siRNA-based therapeutic treatment for DYT1 dystonia using genetically modified mouse models (Dang et al., Experimental Neurology, 196:452-463, 2005; Dang et al., Neuroscience Research, 56:470-4, 2006; Dang et al., PNAS USA, 103:15254-9, 2006; Hewett et al., PNAS USA, 104:7271-7276, 2007; Breakefield et al., Nature Review Neuroscience, 9, 222-234, 2008; Yokoi et al., J. Biochem. 143:39-47, 2008). Dystonia is defined clinically as involuntary, often sustained co-contraction of agonist and antagonist muscles causing abnormal and often painful postures or movements. It is generally believed to be mediated by the central nervous system and represents the third most common movement disorders after Parkinson's disease and tremor. The project involves using transgenic mouse models to study pathophysiology of dystonia/Parkinson disease and using siRNA/shRNA and pharmacological reagents to develop effective treatments for dystonia and other related movement disorders. Highly motivated candidates with solid publication record in reputable journals in the area of molecular biology, cell biology, histology, cell culture, or mouse behavioral analysis are encouraged to apply. Experience in molecular or cell biology is desirable and knowledge in neuroscience or neurology is a plus. To apply, please send a CV, and names and contact addresses of references to: Dr. Yuqing Li, Department of Neurology, School of Medicine, University of Alabama at Birmingham, 560 Civitan International Research Center, 1719 6th Avenue South, Birmingham, AL 35294-0021. Email: yli@uab.edu, Tel. +1-205-996-6299, Fax. +1-205-996-7200. The Department of Neurology and the University of Alabama at Birmingham have established a Center for Neurodegeneration and Experimental Therapeutics, a state-of-art facility to accelerate discovery and to bring treatment to patients. Further, a new Comprehensive Neuroscience Center was established last year and it provides advanced research services and extensive inter-disciplinary interactions. Further information about Dr. Li, the UAB Department of Neurology, and the Center for Neurodegeneration and Experimental Therapeutics, the Comprehensive Neuroscience Center, and related information about training environment may be found at the following Web sites:
