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.

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

A Postdoctoral Fellow position is available in the Cleveland Clinic Lerner Research Institute Neurosciences Department. The Neurosciences Department of the Cleveland Clinic Lerner Research Institute is seeking a postdoctoral fellow to support federally-funded projects exploring novel neurostimulation-based approaches for the treatment of Parkinson’s disease and acquired brain injury. The successful applicant will participate in work that combines behavior assessments of therapeutic efficacy with a systems-based approach to explore 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.

Please send your curriculum vitae and contact information for 3 references to Dr. Kenneth Baker, Neurosciences Department (bakerk6@ccf.org).

A Postdoctoral Fellow position is available in the Cleveland Clinic Lerner Research Institute in the Department of Neurosciences to investigate adaptive immune responses in central nervous system (CNS) glia in the context of autoimmunity and repair. 
 
The successful candidate will help lead a multidisciplinary team to elucidate novel mechanisms that impact injury and recovery during CNS autoimmunity, focusing on Multiple Sclerosis. Research projects include: 1) elucidating cytokine-mediated intercellular communication networks in glia during CNS development and repair and 2) investigating the role of glia-specific cytokine signaling during neuroinflammation. A strong work ethic, proficiency in verbal and written English, and a PhD and/or MD are required. Experience with murine models of human disease and expertise in neuroscience and/or immunology are strongly preferred. 
 
Please send your curriculum vitae, a brief description of your research interests, and contact information for 3 references to Jessica Williams, PhD (williaj39@ccf.org).
