The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth)
An exciting postdoctoral position is available in Dr. Jun Li’s lab to carry out research work in stroke and Alzheimer’s Disease in Neurology Department in McGovern Medical School at the University of Texas Health Science Center. Our research aims to identify biological targets for the development of future treatments in stroke and Alzheimer’s Disease patients. Currently, we have several NIH funded projects including the impact of disordered breathing in stroke and Alzheimer’s Disease.
We routinely utilize stroke models in rodents and in vitro models using cell culture (microglia, neurons, endothelium and astrocytes et al.). State of art facilities and research technology in our lab also include two-photon imaging system, confocal imaging system, axonal culture, neurite in vivo imaging, cell-specific gene knockout mouse models, flow cytometry, aged stroke models, CAA and AD mice models and lentiviral gene delivery system.
The candidate is expected to have relevant research experience in neuroscience, animal behavior, or microsurgery in rodents. Relocation cost will be supported by the lab. Please submit by e-mail a cover letter and curriculum vitae to Dr. Jun Li at firstname.lastname@example.org.
