Epilepsy Research Fellowship
Positions available immediately to study neuronal injury and neuroprotection in epilepsy.
Whole animal models and cell culture systems are used to study neuronal injury induced by abnormal neuronal excitability. Anatomic, biochemical and molecular techniques are used to characterize and modulate activity-dependent injury and cell death. Current projects focus on trophic factors and intracellular signal transduction pathways.
Applicants should possess a PhD and preferably experience in whole animal models or primary neuronal cell culture. Expertise in immunohistochemical techniques, neuroanatomy or neurophysiology would be an advantage.
Please send a letter stating research interests, a C.V., and two to three letters of recommendation to:
