A position for a postdoctoral fellow is open to individuals with a PhD, MD or DVM at the University of Alberta to study neurovirology and neuroimmunology with a focus on pathogenesis, particularly innate immune mechanisms of multiple sclerosis and HIV-associated neurological syndromes, using established in vitro and in vivo models for these diseases.
The applicant is being recruited to aid in the management of and conduct research in a neuroinflammation-based research laboratory. Research focuses on the role of inflammation in disease and repair of the nervous system, including both in vitro systems and animal models of disease. Specifically, the applicant will be studying the functional relevance of immune cells, factors, and neuroprotective proteins in cells and culture as well as in animal models of disease. This will involve helping to oversee as well as conduct a variety of biomedical research-related protocols and techniques.
With support from funding agencies as well as privately funded initiatives, the Neuroinflammation Research Lab is growing. We are expanding our research efforts and are looking for committed team players interested in making a difference in health research and the lives of individuals living with neurodegenerative disorders including MS.
