The Center for Neuroregeneration is looking to recruit a talented post-doctoral fellow in the area of neural regeneration and the molecular control of neural plasticity. Neural activity drives structural and functional plasticity after spinal cord injury by unknown mechanisms. The Horner Lab focuses on the role of glial and neural progenitor cells and the molecular programs that drive activity dependent plasticity in the injured nervous system. The Horner lab is looking to hire an enthusiastic and talented individual to apply innovative technologies for stimulating activity in the brain and spinal cord and perform gain- and loss-of-function studies to discover the molecular controls of Hebbian plasticity. Roles will include performing and assisting in neural surgeries, electrophysiology, gene therapy, single cell transcriptomics, behavior and quantitative neuroanatomy to detect and quantify neural regeneration. Members of the Horner lab work as a highly collaborative, multidisciplinary team to solve challenging problems in neural regeneration.
Please send Curriculum Vitae, statement of research interests and future objectives, and list of three references to Dr. Philip Horner.
