Location: Riverside, CA, USA
A Postdoctoral scholar/Staff Scientist position with competitive salaries and benefits are available immediately in Dr. Tiwari-Woodruff Lab at the School of Medicine, University of California, Riverside. The primary focus of our research is understanding demyelination and neurodegeneration in multiple sclerosis (MS). The lab is actively investigating therapeutic agents that have immunomodulatory and remyelinating properties to induce recovery and repair. The postdoctoral fellow will have the opportunity to investigate mitochondria changes in Purkinje neurons and circuitry of demyelinating cerebellum using both postmortem human cerebellar tissue from MS patients and mouse models of MS. We have established transgenic mouse colonies with tagged mitochondria and Purkinje cells. Ability to perform brain slice electrophysiology (patch clamp and field potentials), and/or neuropathology and immunology is required.
Tiwari-Woodruff lab uses animal models, immunology, electrophysiology, behavior, molecular biology, and biochemistry approaches. Candidates should have a doctoral degree in neuroscience, immunology, biochemistry, physiology, or a related field with a background in electrophysiology. We welcome and strongly support scientists with diverse backgrounds who are energetic and highly motivated for career advancement in academia or industry. Riverside is a wonderful place to live, providing ample cultural and entertainment opportunities in a safe and comfortable community with affordable housing and living expenses. The city is about an hour away from beautiful beaches and ski slopes.

Position title: Postdoctoral Researcher/Research Associate
Organization: University of Virginia
Location: Charlottesville, VA, USA
The Coutinho-Budd lab (coutinhobuddlab.com) at the University of Virginia Department of Neuroscience and the Center of Brain Immunology and Glia is seeking a motivated Postdoctoral Research Associate for an NIH-funded position.
Our lab is interested in the cellular and molecular mechanisms of glial biology. Glia are critical components of the nervous system—almost everything that neurons do requires glial support. Significant progress has been made in understanding neuron-glia interactions at synapses and axons, but my lab aims to define what glia do at neuronal cell bodies using Drosophila melanogaster as a model system. We seek to understand how these glial cells interact with both neurons and neighboring glial cells, and to unravel their roles in the healthy nervous system and disease with a number of projects spanning from development to neurodegeneraton.
Candidates should have the ability to work creatively and independently in the development and execution of research projects, demonstrate a track record of planning, performing, and publishing original research, and possess effective oral and written communication skills. Previous experiences in cell biology, neuroscience, or genetics is preferred, though prior experience with Drosophila is not required.
