Postdoctoral Fellow Position Opening at UTHSC Houston, USA
A postdoctoral fellowship position is available at the University of Texas Health Science Center (UTHSC) at Houston. We study immune responses to cerebral ischemia, including but not limited to microglia and peripheral immune cell activation after stroke. Sex differences in genetic and molecular mechanisms (sex chromosomal effects vs. hormonal effects) underlying ischemic stroke are also studied in the lab. Multiple animal models will be employed in the study including middle cerebral artery occlusion (MCAO), bone marrow chimera, and Hypoxic-Ischemic Encephalopathy (HIE) model. Cutting-edge technologies such as RNAsep/Gene sequencing, gene conditional knockout, lentivirus transfection, flow cytometry, will also be utilized.
The ideal candidate will be a recent PhD with a strong background of immunology and/or genetic biology, preferably those with direct hands-on experience in techniques of microsurgery in rodents. To apply for this position, send your CV with names/contact info of 3 references to Dr. Fudong Liu (Fudong.Liu@uth.tmc.edu; firstname.lastname@example.org).
Salary will be commensurate with relevant experience and based on the prevailing wage of postdoctoral research trainees set by the U.S. Department of Labor. Full-scale state employee benefits will be provided in general. Houston is a dynamic world-class city that is alive with energy and rich in culture, history, diversity, sports, music and cuisine. Located in Texas Medical Center, UTHSC Houston is an excellent academic environment and provides plentiful opportunities for career development.
