Postdoctoral Position, UR 20218 "Neuropathies and Therapeutic Innovations" Research Team, Faculties of Medicine and Pharmacy, University of Limoges, Limoges, France
Posted: 29 April 2022 • Closes: 16 June 2022
The research position focus is located at the intersection of microfluidics, advanced bioengineering and disease modelling. The position has an emphasis on utilizing microfluidic principles to develop two-dimensional (2D) and three-dimensional (3D) skin models and making these available for fundamental and applied studies. The main objectives of this project are to investigate the involvement of neurovascular interplay in the pathophysiology of rosacea, a chronic skin disease. 2D and 3D in vitro models will be developed to dissect the direct effect of nerve endings on the phenotype and expression patterns of endothelial cells and fibroblasts upon induction of neuropeptide release from neurons.

Postdoctoral Fellowship in the Lab of Dr. Jon-Paul Pepper, Stanford University School of Medicine, Stanford, CA, USA
Posted: 2 March 2022 • Closes: 1 December 2022
The primary aim of the Pepper Lab at the Stanford Facial Nerve Center is to produce a novel treatment for peripheral motor nerve injury that hastens clinical recovery after injury. To pursue this goal, we perform both discovery and translational research using mouse models of facial and sciatic nerve injury. Through our previous and ongoing discovery research, we have identified several therapeutic candidates (small molecules and tissue engineering approaches) and have funding to support the pre-clinical assessment of our lead compounds/approaches. We seek a postdoctoral fellow to lead our assessment of our therapeutic candidates, describe their impact on regenerating nerve tissue, and further assess the signals that drive effective neural regeneration after injury in order to identify potential treatments.
We rely heavily on in-vivo models of nerve injury and repair. Prior experience with mouse models, preferably transgenic mice, is required. We use cell culture assays to assess drug potency and screen for bioactivity. Therefore, familiarity with basic cell culture techniques is required. The desired candidate would have a PhD in Neuroscience or a related discipline with an interest in translational research. Some experience with transcriptomics applied to nerve injury and recovery is helpful. The preferred start date is before July 2022, but is negotiable.
