Dynamic, highly motivated, and goal oriented postdoctoral fellow or experienced research associate is sought who wishes to work on an NIH-funded project utilizing novel cellular, molecular, and animal model approaches study the role of ependymal cells and their interactions with the neuroimmune system in homeostasis and aging of the brain. Successful applicant must possess a PhD with extensive experience in neuroscience research as demonstrated through peer reviewed publications. The successful applicant will join the laboratory of Dr. Troy Ghashghaei in the department of Molecular Biomedical Sciences at North Carolina State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine in Raleigh, North Carolina. The department, college, and university are in the midst of rapid growth in the area of neurosciences. The university, college and the laboratory are part of the Research Triangle Park which is a premier and highly dynamic area for biomedical and neurobiology research while very affordable and high quality of life.

About North Carolina State University
The laboratory of Troy Ghashghaei is interested in understanding how the brain develops, how it ages, and how during disease or injury these two processes are disturbed. The research projects employ sophisticated and highly interdisciplinary experimental approaches (spanning along a molecular-cellular-tissue-behavior axis) to address fundamental neurobiology questions using the mouse as the model organism. The experimental efforts in the Ghashghaei lab have evolved into three major areas of research: 1. Regulation of developmental transitions in the developing forebrain; The role of ependymal cells in regulation of homeostasis in the forebrain; and 3. Behavioral role of neuronal circuits established during distinct developmental windows.
