Noncoding RNAs in Secondary Brain Damage

Application deadline closed.

Job Description

This position is in the laboratory of Dr. Raghu Vemuganti, Professor and Vice-Chair for Basic Research, Dept. of Neurological Surgery, Univ. of Wisconsin. The lab is supported by several federally funded (NIH and VA) grants.

The primary project is to investigate the role of noncoding RNAs (microRNAs, lncRNAs, and circRNAs), epigenetics, and epitranscriptomics in secondary brain damage. Proficiency in rodent stroke/TBI models, motor and cognitive function analysis, molecular and cellular techniques, including histopathology, immunohistochemistry, Western blotting, PCR, and siRNA work, is preferred. Skills in data analysis, statistics, bioinformatics, and writing are helpful.


PhD in neuroscience or biomedical sciences and proficiency in English is required. The incumbent is expected to interact with several scientists, post-docs, grad students, and undergrad students working in Vemuganti Lab.

If interested, submit a CV, a brief cover letter indicating prior research experience, career goals, and names of 2 referees to Dr. Raghu Vemuganti (
