Position Type
Full time
We are seeking an independent, motivated, and creative scientist to join our dynamic and highly collaborative neuroscience team. This scientist will be responsible for target discovery, validation, and preclinical development of novel therapeutics targeting neuro inflammation, with a primary focus on microglia. The individual will also be involved in developing new technologies that enable deeper exploration of mechanisms in neuro inflammation to support the development of new therapeutic modalities for CNS and PNS indications.

As a Scientist, on the Neuroscience team, a typical day might include the following:
  • Identifying and studying novel biology, mechanisms, modalities, and/or therapeutic targets using a wide range of in vitro and in vivo approaches
  • Developing cell-based assays and animal models for investigating neuroinflammatory mechanisms in the central (spinal cord, CNS) and peripheral nervous system (PNS)
  • Designing and performing behavioral assessments in animal models of CNS/PNS injury, pain, and/or neurological diseases for new target identification and validation
  • Pursuing new targets aimed at modulating inflammation in the CNS and PNS, and characterize the efficacy of novel therapeutics using in vivo animal models and in vitro assays
  • Designing rigorous and appropriate experiments to address core questions, and rigorously analyze and evaluate resulting data with minimal supervision
  • Presenting data both internally and externally and productively participate in discussions in our collaborative, cross-functional team environment
  • Supporting the development of new technology for improving the delivery of novel therapeutics to the spinal cord and/or specific cell type of interest
  • Keeping up-to-date and well-organized records of experiments

This role might be for you if:
  • You aspire to become part of an innovative and scientifically inspiring environment
  • You enjoy collaborating within and outside of a team
  • You have a passion for scientific discovery and face challenges with a positive attitude
  • You can multitask and work independently, and are dedicated to high quality research

To considered for this role, you must have a Ph.D. and 2+ years post- doctoral experience. The candidate should have research experience in microglial biology and neuro immunology in the context of injury, pain, or neurodegenerative diseases. Excellent publication record is highly desirable. Experience with behavioral assessments in rodent models of CNS injury, pain, and/or neurological diseases required. Expertise in a wide range of molecular and cellular biology techniques including immunohistochemistry, ELISA, Western blot, and flow cytometry is desired. Isolation and culture of primary cells
