    The Gulbransen laboratory in the Department of Physiology at Michigan State University is recruiting several postdoctoral fellows to fill open research positions on projects investigating the roles of enteric glia in enteric neurocircuits, visceral pain, neuroinflammation, and a project investigating interactions between peripheral nerves and perivascular adipose tissue.

    The Gulbransen lab uses advanced cellular imaging and genetic approaches to study the roles of glia in the digestive tract in health and disease. Major techniques used in these studies include network- and cellular-level calcium imaging with GCaMPs, selective cell stimulation using chemogenetics, RNA sequencing, GI disease models, and physiological assays of gut function. The candidate will have the opportunity to learn a wide spectrum of laboratory techniques and will have access to state-of-the-art technology that will lead to independent research projects in this area. The group is well funded and ongoing projects include studies that focus on how enteric glia regulate intestinal motor functions and how enteric glia regulate visceral pain.

    The successful candidates will be expected to conduct experiments, collect and analyze data, give research presentations, write scholarly papers, provide progress reports, and mentor graduate and undergraduate students in the lab. There will also be opportunities to participate in professional development programs and to write and submit grants and career development awards.

    This position is a 12-month fixed term appointment. Renewal of position is based on funding and performance. Qualified candidates must have a PhD or MD degree and should have some or all of the following attributes: 1) a strong background in neuroscience (preferably enteric neuroscience) and/or cellular/molecular gastroenterology, 2) a publication record of primary research articles including at least one lead-author publication, 3) excellent communication skills (written/spoken English), 4) an excellent academic record, 5) a keen desire to learn, and 6) previous research experience in cellular neuroscience, physiology, or gastroenterology. Interested candidates should send an email including a letter of intent outlining their qualifications and career objectives, CV, PDFs of 2-3 publications and names of 3 individuals that can be contacted to provide a reference to Dr. Brian Gulbransen at gulbrans@msu.edu.

    Formal applications should be submitted through the MSU applicant portal: https://careers.msu.edu/en-us/job/504845/research-associatefixed-term. Salary will be commensurate with current NIH stipend levels. Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled.

    Postdoctoral positions are available for 2-3 years in the laboratory of Dr. Munjal Acharya funded by NIH, California Institute of Regenerative Medicine (CIRM) and the American Cancer Society (ACS). Salary will be commensurate with experience.

    The scholar will be responsible for investigating regenerative strategies to remediate radiation- or chemo-therapy-related brain injury (chemobrain) and cognitive dysfunction. Additional projects will involve characterizing the impact of gliosis (microglial and astrocytic activation), neuroinflammation and CNS complement cascade activation on brain function. Our laboratory employs gene silencing, transgenic, stem cell-based and pharmacological approaches to study neurobiological mechanisms and regenerative strategies to ameliorate neuroinflammation and cognitive impairments.

    Requirements:

    Successful candidates will have an excellent track record and be highly motivated scientist who can carry out independent experiments and work well with a team. The successful candidate will play a critical role in contributing to execution of the overall aims of the project and the analysis and preparation of the data for presentation in scientific meetings and pee-reviewed publications.

    Required skills:

    • A Ph.D and laboratory experience in neuroscience, molecular biology and/or biochemistry.
    • Hands on experience with mouse or rat handling, rodent behavior and cognitive function.
    • Standard molecular and cell biology techniques (IHC, ELISA, Western blot, RNA, DNA).
    • Strong skill in organization, data handling and statistical analysis.
    • Supervise/train students and research staff.
    • Proficiency in English with excellent oral, written and interpersonal communication skills.

    Desirable skills:

    • Brain cancer induction (orthotopic and flank cancer models), cancer imaging (BLI, CBCT)
    • Hands on experience with mouse and/or rat stereotaxic surgery
    • Mammalian cell culturing (human or rodent stem cells, cancer cells), isolation and characterization of extracellular vesicles (exosomes)
    • Confocal and/or Super-Resolution microscopy, and 3D fluorescent image quantification techniques (i.e. Imaris, Auto Quant, ClearView, Neurolucida, Stereology).
    • Knowledge of genetic manipulation of mammalian cells and mouse brain to knockdown or overexpress genes (AAV, Lentivirus, CRISPR-Cas, Cre-LoxP) Electrophysiology experience would be advantageous

    Send CV with the names and addresses of three references (please do not solicit letters) to:Dr. Munjal Acharya macharya@uci.edu
