Temple University Postdoc Position

Neuronal Repair and CNS Regeneration

Postdoctoral positions are available to study neuronal repair, axon regeneration and myelination in the CNS in Shriners Hospitals Pediatric Research Center (SHPRC) at Temple University in Philadelphia. The major goals of our research projects are to understand the basic mechanisms underlying axon regeneration and remyelination failure in the CNS and to develop novel/successful therapies for axon regeneration, myelination and functional recovery after injury and in neurodegenerative disorders (for details see J Neurosci 31: 14051-66, 2011; J Neurosci 30: 963-8, 2010; J Neurosci 28: 8914-28, 2008; J Neurosci 27: 4154-64, 2007; Nature 417:547-51, 2002; J Neurosci 23: 4219-27, 2003; Neuron 38: 187-99, 2003, and J Neurosci 24: 10511-20, 2004). Our lab employs a number of in vitro and in vivo research approaches, including molecular/cellular neurobiology, protein biochemistry, genetic and pharmacological methods, neurite/axon outgrowth, in vivo axon lesion models (such as sp!
inal cord injury, optic nerve crush and EAE) and multiple behavioral evaluations in rodents.

Highly motivated individuals with a strong background in axon/myelin injury models, behavioral tests, molecular and cellular neurobiology and biochemistry are encouraged to apply. Candidates should have a Ph.D., M.D./Ph.D. or equivalent in the field of neuroscience, molecular/cellular biology, biomedicine or biochemistry. Please send CV and a brief description of research interests to:
