Position Description:

We are seeking a postdoctoral researcher interested in studying gene expression regulation by noncoding RNAs in ischemic stroke. Our research is focused on understanding the roles and mechanisms by which long noncoding RNAs and microRNAs modulate transcriptional and post-transcriptional processes that influence pathophysiological outcomes in the injured cerebral cortex. We utilize rodent models (mouse and rat), mammalian cell culture, and a wide array of cellular and molecular methodologies such as microarray, next-gen sequencing, PCR, real-time PCR, western blotting, immunohistochemistry, ChIP, FISH, gene knockdown, and bioinformatics. The candidate will be trained in existing methodologies in our laboratory and also have the opportunity to adopt new methodologies as needed to investigate the research questions at hand.

Proficiency in basic molecular biology and cell biology techniques is required. Experience with mouse/rat models of stroke, including MCAO surgery and intracranial stereotaxic injections is preferred but not required (training in these surgical techniques will be provided in the lab upon joining).

Salary is commensurate with NIH guidelines and competitive benefits are provided.

Education and Training:

Ph.D. in neuroscience, molecular biology, biochemistry, genetics, or a related field is required.

Application Instructions:

Please email a curriculum vitae, a brief statement of research interests (can be included as a paragraph in the email) and contact information for three references to: Dr. Ashutosh Dharap at

JFK Medical Center is an Equal Opportunity employer.
