Job Description

The Dalton Cardiovascular Research Center in the Division of Research, Innovation & Impact at the University of Missouri is seeking postdoctoral fellow applicants to engage in ongoing studies to investigate functional reorganization of descending neocortical motor outputs during recovery from stroke and brain injury in the laboratory of Dr. Jeffery A Boychuk. This laboratory provides a highly interactive and dynamic research group that evaluates mechanisms of spontaneous and intervention-based therapeutic approaches to brain repair based on preclinical testing of cells, cell systems and their corresponding organ systems. We use a variety of techniques including electrophysiology (both single cell and network recordings), fluorescent/laser/light microscopy, radio telemetry, molecular biology, behavioral testing and opto/chemogenetics. Underrepresented minorities are highly encouraged to apply.

Qualifications. Applicants should have a PhD and/or MD in neuroscience, physiology or related fields. Applicants who anticipate to defend their thesis in the near future are also encouraged to apply.  Candidates will be evaluated on their demonstrated record of careful experimental methods, publications, excellent written and communication skills and an ability to design and perform research in an independent manner. Our group also strives to foster an inclusive and vibrant research environment as well as experience in whole-cell patch clamp electrophysiology and whole animal neurophysiology. Training is available for candidates that wish to expand their research toolbox.

Salary is commensurate with experience starting at NIH pay scale. Additional incentives are provided, including signing bonuses and moving expenses.

Contact Dr. Jeffery A Boychuk for all questions. To apply, please email CV with publications, and detailed contact information for 3 references.
