Postdoctoral or scientist positions are available to study exciting projects supported by NIH and other research foundations in the Center for Neural Repair and Regeneration at Temple University in Philadelphia. These positions provide an exceptional opportunity to participate in a collaborative environment to perform comprehensive research toward understanding the cellular and molecular mechanisms of neural damage and developing therapeutic strategies for neurological disorders.

Highly motivated individuals with a strong background in the below areas are encouraged to apply: 1) viral vector and genetic research approaches, 2) molecular/cellular neurobiology and biochemistry, and 3) in vivo animal models to study neural damage, repair, and regeneration. Candidates should have a PhD, MD/PhD, or equivalent in the field of neuroscience, biology, biomedicine, bioengineering, or biochemistry. Following appropriate training, successful applicants will have ample opportunity to develop new research skills and to perform innovative and cutting-edge research projects. The research in our Center is focused on neural development, injury, repair, and regeneration. The Center provides an outstanding research environment and facilities for all trainees and research scientists. Successful applicants will be paid with NIH/University guideline-based salary plus the standard benefits and become members of a highly-motivated research team in collaboration with several other excellent research groups.

The research projects in our group focus on studying neural injury/damage, neuronal regeneration, neural signaling pathways, glial-neuronal interactions, and remyelination in the CNS. We are investigating the essential molecular/cellular mechanisms underlying neural lesions, neuronal regrowth failure, and axon demyelination in the CNS. We aim to develop novel, highly effective, and translational strategies to promote neural regeneration, repair, neuroplasticity, and functional recovery. We are highly interested in identifying novel genes and signaling pathways that regulate neural function and regrowth using various molecular, genetic, and viral approaches. We employ multiple in vitro and in vivo research approaches, including viral gene delivery, genetic and pharmacological methods, transgenic rodents, molecular/cellular neurobiology, gene sequencing, biochemistry, and multiple neural lesion models in rodents, such as spinal cord injury, optic nerve crush, and experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis.

You are encouraged to find further information on our research program by visiting: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/myncbi/1hqX7tzAf8ekp/bibliography/public/, and https://medicine.temple.edu/shuxin-li.  You are encouraged to read some of our example publications, such as Expert Opin Ther Targets. 2023 Mar;27(3):171-187; Mol Ther. 2020 Aug 5;28(8):1902-1917; Nat Commun. 2021 Jun 22;12(1):3845; Cell Metab. 2020 Nov 3;32(5):767-785.e7; Mol Ther. 2019 Jan 2;27(1):102-117; Brain Behav Immun. 2017 Oct;65:111-124; J Clin Invest. 2016 Jun 1;126(6):2321-33; Nature. 2015 Feb 19;518(7539):404-8; Biomaterials. 2014 May;35(16):4610-26; Neuron. 2003 Apr 24;38(2):187-99; and Nature. 2002 May 30;417(6888):547-51.

Temple University is exceedingly diverse in all aspects of university life and is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer. Please send curriculum vitae or inquiry to Dr. Shuxin Li (Shuxin.li@temple.edu).
