POSITIONS AVAILABLE


New Postdoctoral Positions:  Systems Biology of  Human Epilepsy and New Drug Development

 

We currently have 2 positions funded with ARRA funding to develop novel drug targets and biomarkers from human epileptic brain tissues and a new animal model of human epilepsy.  Studies will utilize combinations of genomics, proteomics, and metabolomics of electrically-mapped human and rat brain tissues together with bioinformatic integration to both identify and validate these markers and targets.  A central goal is the rapid translation of these studies back to patients.  This work is part of a multi-investigator, systems biology approach to study human epilepsy with the development of a state-of-the art database for bioinformatic analysis.    The individuals will have major organization roles in a large human research project on epilepsy that involves many investigators.

Please send a CV and the names of 3 references to Dr. Jeffrey Loeb at  jloeb@med.wayne.edu.

 


Postdoctoral Fellow in Neuromuscular and Axoglial Development

 

 

An position will be open towards the end of this year for  talented PhD or MD scientist interested in how neurotrophic factor and neuregulin signaling modulate early development and how this may impact both diagnostic and therapeutic strategies in human disease.  The individual will work on chick and rodent oligodendrocyte development together with human tissues.  Please send a CV and the names of 3 references to Dr. Jeffrey Loeb at jloeb@med.wayne.edu.


GRADUATE STUDENTS

Students with interests in developmental and molecular neurobiology and/or how some of these early events teach us about diseases of the nervous system are cordially invited for a rotation within the laboratory.  We take many different approaches to answer the questions we are interested in providing a well-rounded scientific education.  Efforts are made so that each student  in the lab will have his/her own, independent project.
