  • Neuroscience/Neurobiology Post-doctoral Research Associate


    The Trauma Mechanics Research Initiative at the
    University of Nebraska-Lincoln seeks a highly motivated post-doctoral
    researcher to perform neuroscience/neurobiology research in the field
    of Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). This is part of a large scale effort
    supported by the U.S. Army involving experiments on small animals,
    cadavers, headforms and computational simulation. An immediate
    appointment is available and a competitive salary will be offered
    based on individual background and experience.

    Specific qualifications include:

    * Ph.D. in Neuroscience/Neurobiology or Biomechanical Engineering with
    a focus in Neurobiology
    * Experience in neuronal cell line (SH-SY5Y, PC12) and primary brain
    cell cultures, neurite/axon growth assays using nerve growth factors,
    neuronal cell-ECM adhesion assays, basic cell/molecular biology assays
    (for assessing neuronal cell markers) and mechanistic pathways
    * Experience in mechanical testing of neurons (e.g., neuronal cell
    stretching) and microscopic analysis is preferred
    * Additional experience measuring electrical signal transmission
    between neurons beneficial
