Position Details

The position is for a 2 year postdoctoral position in neurology/neuro-immunology.

Neurology/Neuroimmunology

Dr. Sriram's lab has been examining to role of cytokines which promote repair and remyelination. We have over the last two years demonstrated the efficacy of a novel natural compounds which improve outcomes in two animal models of CNS demyelinating disease.

The fellowship will involve understanding the mechanism of action of the compounds in remyelination. These agents will include naturally occurring cytokines such as IL-33, which we shown to promote repair and new and novel synthetic molecules.

This fellowship, will involve a basic understanding the neurobiology of glial cells, familiarity with animal models of demyelinating disease.

I am looking for an individual with a PhD in the biological sciences with an interest in pursuing understanding of neurological disease.
