Postdoctoral Fellowship - Neuronal Injury

A postdoctoral position is available at Washington University School of Medicine (St. Louis) to examine mechanisms of 
cytoskeletal disruption in neuronal injury.   The focus of the laboratory is on hypoxic, traumatic and excitotoxic injury to 
neurons and glia in primary cultures. The laboratory utilizes digital microscopy techniques to assess injury-related 
alterations in ion concentrations (for example, cytosolic calcium) or cellular structures (for example, mitochondria or 
cytoskeletal elements). The postdoctoral fellow will be expected to gain proficiency in fluorescence videomicroscopy and 
confocal microscopy, and to develop an independent project using these techniques.   

The laboratory is located in the Center for the Study of Nervous System Injury (Department of Neurology) at Washington 
University. There are extensive opportunities for collaboration with other Center investigators and with faculty of the 
outstanding neuroscience community at Washington University.

Date Available:  April 1, 1996

Requirements: Ph.D., M.D., or equivalent.  The applicant should have experience (supported by publications) in cellular 
neuroscience, cytoskeletal biology, and/or confocal microscopy.  Familiarity with neuronal cell culture, glutamate receptor 
pharmacology, Western blotting, and PC hardware/software, is desirable but not required. Applicants with appropriate 
experience and interests will be asked to submit a CV and three reference letters.
