Postdoctoral positions are available in the laboratory of Dr. Zu-Hang Sheng in New postdoctoral fellows will study mechanisms (1) regulating axonal mitochondrial trafficking and anchoring in order to sense, integrate, and respond to changes in metabolic and growth status, synaptic activity, energy availability, pathological stress and regeneration following brain injury; (2) regulating axonal transport of endolysosomes and autophagosomes in maintaining synaptic and axonal degradation capacity in neurodegenerative diseases; and (3) regulating glial-axon transcellular signaling in maintaining axonal integrity and energy metabolism.

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: EPIGENETICS

Research efforts in the Thoracic Epigenetics Lab led by Dr. David Schrump, Chief, Thoracic Surgery Branch are focused on the elucidation of epigenetic mechanisms regulating gene expression in thoracic malignancies and utilize a wide range of cell culture and PDX assays, as well as correlative experiments using surgical specimens.  Currently, major efforts are centered on the use of induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) models to interrogate mechanisms of pluripotency in lung and esophageal cancers and malignant pleural mesotheliomas in order to identify novel therapeutic targets in cancer stem cells from these neoplasms. Results of our laboratory investigations are directly translated to novel clinical trials in an effort to improve diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of thoracic malignancies that collectively kill more than 2 million people worldwide each year.

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: HUMAN MEMORY & HUMAN INTRACRANIAL PHYSIOLOGY

The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke is seeking a full-time post-doctoral position focused on understanding the neural correlates of human memory.  This position involves studies focused on analyzing and manipulating human intracranial electrophysiological signals, including single-unit activity, local field potentials, and intracranial EEG (iEEG), captured from participants with drug resistant epilepsy and from participants receiving deep brain stimulation surgery.  Post-doctoral fellows will join a laboratory aimed at understanding the neural mechanisms that underlie human episodic memory formation and decision making and at developing novel and innovative techniques to directly communicate with those circuits.

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: NEUROSCIENTIST – NEURAL CIRCUITS

We are seeking talented and enthusiastic postdoctoral fellows to join our team at the Section of Neural Circuits. The mission of the Section of Neural Circuits is to understand how genetic and environmental insults alter the input to, computation in, and output of biological circuits to cause neurodevelopmental disorders like autism, epilepsy and attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder. With this fundamental understanding of circuits, we aim to develop novel molecular and biochemical approaches to repair or optimize network output at nodes within neural networks that are prone to dysregulation.

Deadline : January 7, 2022

(51) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: RADIOSENSITIVITY

Major projects in the laboratory focus on the identification of molecules involved in determining cell/tissue radioresponse, evaluating methods to impact senescence/aging, and the development of target-based therapies.  Opportunities are available for using a variety of genetic and molecular biology approaches to delineate the molecules/processes that regulate cellular radiosensitivity.  Studies will also involve translating fundamental information relating to molecular radioresponse to strategies aimed at increasing the sensitivity of tumor cells or protecting normal tissues.

About The National Institutes of Health (NIH), USA – Official Website

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) is the primary agency of the United States government responsible for biomedical and public health research. It was founded in the late 1880s and is now part of the United States Department of Health and Human Services. The majority of NIH facilities are located in Bethesda, Maryland and other nearby suburbs of the Washington metropolitan area, with other primary facilities in the Research Triangle Park in North Carolina and smaller satellite facilities located around the United States. The NIH conducts its own scientific research through its Intramural Research Program (IRP) and provides major biomedical research funding to non-NIH research facilities through its Extramural Research Program.

As of 2013, the Intramural Research Program (IRP) had 1,200 principal investigators and more than 4,000 postdoctoral fellows in basic, translational, and clinical research, being the largest biomedical research institution in the world, while, as of 2003, the extramural arm provided 28% of biomedical research funding spent annually in the U.S., or about US$26.4 billion
