Postdoctoral Position

A postdoctoral position is available in Dr. Barbara Stonestreet’s laboratory at The Alpert Medical School of Brown University/Department of Pediatrics Women & Infants Hospital of Rhode Island, Providence, RI effective February 15, 2019.

We have four funded NIH grants. Two proposals involve neuroprotective strategies in fetal sheep exposed to in utero ischemia and one on endotoxin related effects on inflammatory conditions in the fetal brain. One of our major focuses is the fetal blood-brain barrier. The other grants are in neonatal rodents exposed to hypoxia-ischemia related brain injury with a focus on neuroprotection. We are interested in understanding the effects of two neuroprotective agents on ischemia and inflammation signaling in blood-brain barrier function and on brain injury in the fetus and newborn. We have very exciting data to show that one of our neuroprotective agents has major neuroprotective effects.

The position requires MD/PhD in neuroscience/pharmacology/or  related disciplines, expertise with in vivo animal experimentation and hands-on experience with along with neuroscience expertise, familiarity with neuroscience bench work techniques including molecular biology, immunohistochemistry, cell culture, antibody, protein production and proven writing ability  (MS will be considered). Experience with surgical procedures (large animal and/or Vannucci neonatal rat models), neurobehavioral, MRI, radioactive materials, data acquisition, and statistical analysis is preferred.
