Postdoctoral Associate

Department of Neurological Sciences

University of Vermont Larner College of Medicine

A Postdoctoral Associate position is available in the Department of Neurological Sciences at the University of Vermont Larner College of Medicine in the Cipolla Lab. The University of Vermont has had a long-standing history in vascular biology research that has produced seminal contributions in the field, creating an outstanding and rich scientific environment. The Cipolla Lab studies cerebral hemodynamics and vascular function during ischemic stroke with a focus on translational aspects including reperfusion injury and collaterals. Investigations into pregnancy and pregnancy-related complications that affect the brain and maternal cerebral circulation are also ongoing, including preeclampsia and stroke. A variety of in vivo and in vitro experimental approaches are used to study brain blood flow, cerebrovascular reactivity, vascular remodeling, and how these relate to brain injury during stroke and seizure (eclampsia). We are also interested in co-morbidities and systemic vascular remodeling, including large vessel stiffness during hypertension and hypercholesterolemia, and how these conditions affect the cerebral microcirculation. Applicants with experience in fields of vascular biology, reproductive biology, pharmacology, physiology and/or neuroscience are encouraged to apply. Qualified candidates will hold a PhD, MD/PhD, or equivalent in physiology, pharmacology, neuroscience or a related field and be highly motivated for a career in science. This position is funded by the NIH and a competitive salary will be offered. Prior experience in vascular biology and/or animal models of vascular disease (hypertension, stroke, etc.) is desirable.

Vermont has unparalleled recreational opportunities and consistently ranks among the very healthiest, safest, and best places to live and raise a family in the US. Burlington is a vibrant university city, located on magnificent Lake Champlain, 3 and ½ hours from Boston and less than 2 hours from Montreal.

The University of Vermont and University of Vermont Medical Center are Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action employers. Applications from women, veterans, individuals with disabilities and people from diverse racial, ethnic, and cultural backgrounds are encouraged. 

The University is especially interested in candidates who can contribute to the diversity and excellence of the academic community. Applicants are requested to include in their cover letter information how they will further this goal.

Please send cover letter, CV and list of 3 references with contact information by email to: Marilyn J. Cipolla, PhD (email: Marilyn.Cipolla@uvm.edu).
