Position Openings - Stirling Laboratory
Positions for postdoctoral fellows are available for highly qualified individuals to work on neuroinflammatory and/or direct mechanisms of central myelinated fiber degeneration following spinal cord injury. The applicants must have a demonstrated background in neuroinflammation and/or trauma and be familiar with microsurgery, live imaging (two photon microscopy experience is a strong asset), molecular and cellular techniques. Applicants must have a PhD (preferably in the last 2 years) or about to obtain a PhD in a related field (e.g. Neuroscience, Immunology, Cancer), and be eligible or currently hold funding.
The Stirling Laboratory of Advanced Optical Imaging within KSCIRC utilizes "state of the art" nonlinear live imaging (i.e., two photon, two photon spectral, SHG) to interrogate mechanisms of white matter injury and the role of microglia and immune subsets in this process. Our lab is very committed to advancing the career aspirations of trainees in academia, and together with other KSCIRC PIs, postdoctoral fellows, graduate students, provides a rich and vibrant research environment.
Our projects are focused on neuroimmunology, neuroprotection, and regeneration following CNS trauma. Trainees also have access to KSCIRC core facilities and highly trained personnel to assist with all aspects of SCI related research.
Please send a cover letter, CV and names of two references to Dr. David Stirling at email@example.com. Applications will be accepted until positions are filled.
