Job Opportunities

University of Cincinnati, Research Assistant
July 17, 2020

Research Assistant

A Research Associate position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Eric S. Wohleb in the Department of Pharmacology & Systems Physiology at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine. Studies in the lab seek to understand how neuron-microglia interactions contribute to synaptic plasticity in physiological and pathological conditions. The lab uses multiple molecular and cellular techniques to examine neurobiological adaptations that shape behavior and cognition.

This position will support the objectives of the laboratory by carrying out experimental studies in rodent models (i.e., behavior tests, molecular or cellular assays) and acting as an assistant to graduate and postdoctoral trainees in the lab. Other duties will include maintaining daily log of research activities, ordering lab supplies, monitoring the health of the animal colonies, performing annual maintenance on lab equipment, and maintaining all facilities in compliance with regulatory standards(i.e., OSHA, IACUC, AAALAC). Training will be provided in research areas with which he/she is less familiar.

University of Cincinnati, Post Doc Fellow
July 20, 2020

Postdoctoral Fellow – Neuron-microglia interactions in health and disease

A Postdoctoral Research Associate position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Eric S. Wohleb in the Department of Pharmacology & Systems Physiology at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine. Studies in the lab seek to understand how neuron-microglia interactions contribute to synaptic plasticity in physiological and pathological conditions. The lab uses multiple molecular and cellular techniques to examine neurobiological adaptations that shape behavior and cognition, including: flow cytometry/ fluorescence-activated cell sorting, cell type-specific RNA-Seq, neuropharmacology, viral-mediated gene manipulations, neuronal modulation via chemogenetics, knock-out/ inducible Cre-recombinase transgenic mice, and confocal microscopy/ 3D image analyses. The candidate will be provided with significant training in research areas with which he/she is less familiar, as well as mentoring to support development as an independent investigator.

This position is fully supported, however, the candidate will be encouraged to apply for postdoctoral fellowships and internal NIH-sponsored training grants.
