Postdoctoral positions for Neural Stem Cells in Neurooncology and Regenerative Neurosciences, Hospital University Sains Malaysia
Posted Jun 10 2009 6:46pm
Postions for Postdocs in the use of Mesenchymal/Embryonic Neural Stem Cells in an animal brain/spinal cord injury model as well as the involvement of stem cells in the progression of brain tumour.
Applications with a Phd and a neuroscience background are invited for a 2-year post-doc fellowship, working with neural stem/progenitor cells and progression of medulloblastomas. The applicant should be experienced in molecular and cell biology and be experiences in doing animal brain cancer models studies.
We are currently seeking highly motivated Postdoctoral Research Fellows to join our team who have extensive experience in electrophysiological recording techniques and fine dissection skills and experience in stem cell culture at the Department of Neurosciences,University Sains Malaysia Health Campus where we are focusing on animal models of sensorimotor control of spinal locomotor circuits,neural plasticity, and functional recovery after stem cells have been transplanted into the brain or spinal cord after injury.
Candidates should have a Ph.D. in neuroscience, physiology or bioengineering or other related sciences with an academic record of scientific excellence, independent research, and a strong interest in an interdisciplinary approach with experience in stem cell culture,brain/spinal cord electrophysiology (in vivo and in vitro) recording and electromyography studies.
Applicants should submit a curriculum vita, list of publications, and e-mail address and telephone of 3 references who can attest to your lab skills.
