Job Summary
The Andres lab at the University of Kentucky is currently seeking a postdoctoral fellow to work on a recently funded collaborative NIH project investigating the role of a novel G-protein signaling cascade involved in functional recovery following TBI. The project uses a preclinical model of brain trauma and a state-of-the-art collection of transgenic mice, to build upon exciting data demonstrating that the RIT1 GTPase reduces in vivo neurodegeneration, promotes synaptic integrity by reducing post-contusion synaptic loss, and alleviates cognitive dysfunction following cortical contusion injury. Our research team uses an integrative approach that includes molecular biology, cellular imaging, and biochemical approaches. Specific projects will be driven by the candidates€™ interests and expertise.

Interested candidates must have a Ph.D. and/or an M.D., less than 5 years of postdoctoral experience, and a strong background in molecular biology, cell biology, neuroscience, and/or biochemistry. Successful candidates will have a demonstrated track record of project completion and relevant first author publications, and have strong organizational, written and verbal communication skills. Start date is negotiable, but ideally would be in early 2018.

Required application materials include a current curriculum vitae and a cover letter. Please include the names and contact information for three references when prompted in the application. This information may be used to solicit recommendation letters from your references within the employment system. Application deadline is March 15, 2018.

What I liked about the service is that it had such a comprehensive collection of jobs! I was using a number of sites previously and this took up so much time, but in joining EmploymentCrossing, I was able to stop going from site to site and was able to find everything I needed on EmploymentCrossing.
