Minorities, women,protected veterans, and individuals with disabilities areencouraged to apply. The Department of Neurology at University of Maryland School ofMedicine is seeking a part-time, highly qualified postdoctoralresearch fellow for preclinical translational research focusing oncellular signaling pathways involved in immune regulation ofneuronal function. Primary research involves use of patient-derivedsamples for analysis in cell culture, primary neuronal culture, androdent animal models of neurologic diseases. Specifically, we areinterested in the molecular mechanisms of autoantibody targeting ofcell surface proteins. The laboratory utilizes multidisciplinaryapproach and techniques include primary neuronal culture, acutebrain slice sectioning, neuropharmacology, viral vector delivery,histology, immunocytochemistry, immunohistochemistry, light andconfocal microscopy, and live cell microscopy.Candidates should have expertise in at least one of the followingareas: cell biology, biochemistry, molecular biology, or cellularphysiology. Experience with mouse and rat transgenic andknock-in/knock-out models is preferred. The successful candidatewill lead one or more projects combining multidisciplinaryapproaches in cell biology, neuroscience, and immunology.Interested candidates should provide cover letter including shortdescription of doctoral training and future research goals, C.V.,and at least 3 references to:David R.
