Job Description

We are looking for a highly motivated and career-oriented research individual with an excellent publication record, a Ph.D. in neuroscience, cell biology, or a related field, and with hands-on experience in translational animal models. A proven research ability in two or more of these areas is desirable: a) neuroscience research in ischemic brain injury, stroke, or peripheral nerve injury, b) stem cell or exosome therapy, c) in vivo electrophysiology, signal processing, or brain imaging. Other lab experience is helpful but not required: patch-clamp, brain slice cultures, optogenetics, and bioluminescence.

We offer multifaceted scientific projects, a place in a committed team, and strong scientific collaborations. We have an outstanding record of helping trainees to build an excellent publication record.

Lab interests:

1) brain monitoring after cardiac arrest with stem cell therapy or therapeutic hypothermia and underlying mechanisms;

2) glycol-engineered neural stem cells to improve brain outcome after cardiac arrest.

3) Stem cell surface modification to promote nerve regeneration after peripheral nerve injuries (PNIs). The brain projects use in vitro and in vivo models to investigate electrophysiological and cellular mechanisms of brain injury after cardiac arrest with therapeutic interventions such as stem cell therapy and target temperature management. In the PNI project, we will enhance adipose stem cell adhesion and differentiation in vitro, and improve nerve regeneration with stem cells or exosomes after nerve repair to explore related therapeutic mechanisms.

Our primary goals are to develop new strategies for brain injury, improve nerve regeneration, and elucidate the underlying therapeutic cellular and molecular mechanisms.
