Miami Project to Cure Paralysis at The University of Miami

The Miami Project to Cure Paralysis/Department of Neurological Surgery at the University of Miami, Miller School of Medicine is seeking outstanding applicants at the Assistant Professor level. The Miami Project offers excellent basic science, translational, and clinical research programs directed toward the study of central and peripheral nervous system damage and development of novel treatments to promote functional recovery. The candidate should have a strong interest in pursuing pre-clinical research focused on developing and testing novel strategies to improve functional outcomes following spinal cord injury. Investigators using systems neuroscience, computational, and/or regenerative approaches are of particular interest, but investigators using other approaches are also encouraged to apply.

Noam Harel Lab, James J. Peters VA Medical Center

We are seeking a Postdoctoral Fellow with experience in human neurophysiology to join our neurorehabilitation research team at the James J. Peters VA Medical Center in New York City.

Mitchell Lab, University of Florida

Postdoctoral associate position in the Mitchell Laboratory to join studies concerning intracellular and intercellular mechanisms of intermittent hypoxia-induced phrenic motor plasticity and translation to rodent models of spinal cord injury and/or ALS. Experience in respiratory physiology, neurophysiology, or cell biology are beneficial. To apply, please email a curriculum vitae, a brief statement of research interests and career goals, and the names and contact information for at least 3 references to: gsmitche@phhp.ufl.edu; cc ksawicki@phhp.ufl.edu

Dale Lab, University of Florida

The Dale Lab is recruiting for a postdoctoral associate to investigate neuromodulation strategies (spinal stimulation) to restore breathing after spinal cord injury. The focus of this project concerns mechanisms of stimulation-induced spinal plasticity. Experience with in vivo electrophysiology, EMG recording/interpretation, and/or rodent surgery are all beneficial but not required. This position is flexible in terms of visa status. Please send CV to Dr. Dale at ericadale@ufl.edu.

Fuller Lab, University of Florida

The Fuller laboratory at the University of Florida has open postdoctoral and research technician positions. Ongoing studies are focused on gene therapy in neuromuscular disease and promoting recovery after spinal cord injury. Contact Dr. Fuller at dfuller@phhp.ufl.edu

Lepore Lab - Thomas Jefferson University - Philadelphia

An NIH-funded post-doctoral fellowship position in the Spinal Cord Repair Laboratory of Angelo Lepore is available immediately for an individual with interest in examining the pathogenesis and treatment of spinal cord injury (SCI) in animal models. Our lab is in the Department of Neuroscience at Thomas Jefferson University, which is located in downtown Philadelphia. Studies in our lab have a strong in vivo emphasis, and include examining: (1) regeneration and synaptic reconnectivity of respiratory neural circuitry after SCI; (2) role of astrocytes in SCI pathogenesis and repair; (3) cellular mechanisms underlying chronic neuropathic pain induced by SCI; (4) role played by synaptic molecules in both adaptive and maladaptive circuit plasticity post-SCI; (5) cell transplantation into SCI animal models. We are looking for an independent, motivated and enthusiastic post-doctoral fellow (or research associate) with experience in: writing manuscripts; animal models of SCI and/or other nervous system disease; progenitor cell biology and cell culture; animal surgery; transplantation; viral vectors; behavioral and physiological testing; histology and microscopy; molecular biology and basic biochemistry. The candidate should also bring a strong desire to prepare manuscripts, write fellowship grants (though salary support is guaranteed) and mentor trainees in the lab. Candidates should have a Ph.D. in Neuroscience or related discipline (or M.D. with extensive neuroscience research experience), a strong publication record, written and spoken English proficiency, and importantly an ability to work collaboratively in an extremely friendly and interactive lab environment. Interested applicants are invited to submit curriculum vitae, statement of research experience and interests, and contact information for three references to Angelo Lepore: angelo.lepore@jefferson.edu
