The Department of Neurosciences of the Cleveland Clinic’s Lerner Research Institute seeks to hire a postdoctoral fellow to support federally-funded projects exploring novel neuromodulation approaches for the treatment of stroke and Parkinson’s disease. The position forms part of our interdisciplinary program that brings together Neuroscientists, Biomedical Engineers, as well as physician-scientists from the Center for Neurological Restoration and the Department of Radiology within the number two-ranked hospital in the United States. The successful applicant will participate in work that combines behavioral assessments of therapeutic efficacy with both invasive (i.e., deep brain stimulation) and non-invasive neurostimulation techniques to carry-out a systems-based approach to understanding neurophysiological changes across the sensorimotor brain networks in both humans and preclinical models of disease.  Ph.D. (or equivalent) students with relevant education or experience in neurophysiology, biomedical engineering, or motor control are invited to apply, though preference will be given to candidates with experience in array-based multi-unit neuronal or local field potential signal processing techniques.

The neuroscience research community at Cleveland Clinic spans the research and clinical institutes and includes neuroscientists, biomedical engineers, physicists, mathematicians, geneticists, molecular biologists, and physician-scientists. Investigators within the neuroscience community are supported by one of the top and largest clinical neurological institutes in the country, comprised of more than 200 medical and surgical specialists dedicated to the treatment of neurological and psychiatric disorders. Neuroscience research is supported by state-of-the-art molecular biology labs, small and large animal neurophysiology labs, small-animal MRI, the largest single center repository of human intracranial electrophysiology data bank from patients with epilepsy (subdural grids and SEEG depth electrodes), and one of the most active and integrated neuromodulation centers in the country. Exceptional collaboration possibilities between laboratory and clinical scientists, and access to large populations of patients, provide a unique opportunity for translational investigations.

11/21/2018 Ranjan Dutta, Ph.D.
duttar@ccf.org

A Postdoctoral Fellow position is available in the Department of Neurosciences at the Cleveland Clinic Lerner Research Institute to work on an NIH-funded study to investigate the role of cell-specific proteome in altering the disease response in multiple sclerosis (MS). 
 
The successful candidate will join a multidisciplinary team to elucidate novel mechanisms that impact neuro-axonal injury and as well as remyelination during MS. Experience with large-scale data, including RNA and proteomic analyses, is required. A strong work ethic, proficiency in verbal and written English, and a PhD and/or MD are required. Experience with handling human tissue and/or a background in multiple sclerosis research will be advantageous.

Postdoctoral Positions: Cellular/Molecular Mechanisms of Neurodegeneration and Altered Cognition in Multiple Sclerosis

Postdoctoral Fellow positions are available in the Department of Neurosciences at the Cleveland Clinic Lerner Research Institute. The successful candidate(s) will work for Professor and Department Chairman Bruce Trapp on a comprehensive NIH R35-funded research program. Areas of interest include: 1) Investigation of the molecular events responsible for primary neuronal degeneration in a new subtype of multiple sclerosis. 2) Molecular and physiological consequences of learning impairment caused by hippocampal demyelination. Candidates should have a Ph.D. and/or M.D. in a relevant discipline and a background in neuroscience. Interested applicants should submit a curriculum vitae, a brief description of research interests and career goals, and contact information for three references to Dr. Bruce D. Trapp, Chairman, Department of Neurosciences, via email at: trappb@ccf.org.

08/16/2018 Yu-Shang Lee
leey2@ccf.org

A Postdoctoral Researcher position is available in the Department of Neurosciences at the Cleveland Clinic Lerner Research Institute to investigate the potential therapeutic intervention to promote the nerve regeneration and/or the motor, sensory and autonomic functional recovery after spinal cord injury or traumatic brain injury. The mechanisms (neuroprotection, macrophage polarization and/or demyelination) underlying these effects are also the topics of our studies. These studies are supported by fund from NIH R01, DOD and Foundation. This position offers an excellent work environment with competitive salary and benefits.

 We are seeking a highly motivated, independent, creative, and interactive scientist to work with.  Applicants with a strong background in neuroanatomy, neurophysiology, and molecular biology are encouraged to apply. Extensive experience in western blotting, real-time rtPCR, animal surgery, animal behavior, histological techniques, confocal microscopy, and related field is desirable. Applications with limited experience but highly motivated with strong work ethic may also be considered. Good English communication skills and a Ph.D. and / or M.D. in a relevant discipline are required.  Interested applicants please submit a curriculum vitae, brief description of research interests and career goals, and contact information for three references to Dr. Yu-Shang Lee via email at: leey2@ccf.org
