Mark Petersen, MD, at the Gladstone Institutes and University of California San Francisco (UCSF) is seeking a skilled, highly motivated postdoctoral scholar to join our group. We are studying the underlying mechanisms of neurological disease with a goal of developing new treatments to aid repair in the diseased or injured brain. Our lab has a particular focus on vascular pathology and stem cell regeneration in neurological diseases such as preterm infant brain injury and multiple sclerosis. The postdoctoral scholar will work closely with members of the Petersen Lab and Gladstone/UCSF scientific community to unravel mechanisms of disease using cutting-edge imaging and single-cell technologies in animal and tissue culture models.
Postdoctoral candidates should possess a PhD, MD, or both and have a strong background in neuroscience or other relevant areas of biomedical research, as well as an outstanding record of academic achievements and research productivity. Additional skills required include excellent time management, strong communication, and the ability to work well in multidisciplinary teams. Previous experience in cell culture and animal models of neurological disease would strengthen the application.
