Postdoctoral Scholar - Neuroscience

Commensurate with experience
Will remain open until filled

A neuroscience postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Professor Ron Frostig. The preclinical project for this position is focused on ischemic stroke protection in a rodent model. We are especially interested in cortical neurovascular processes that underlie sensory stimulation-based protection from impeding ischemic stroke or their failure leading to stroke. These studies aim to reveal novel neurovascular interactions in the ischemic cortex during sensory stimulation. To study neurovascular interactions, we routinely employ multidisciplinary systems neuroscience approaches including high-resolution functional imaging techniques, blood-flow imaging techniques, neuronal recordings from microelectrode arrays, pharmacological interventions, behavioral tests and postmortem histology. Some of the projects involve collaborations with researchers at UCI’s Beckman Laser Institute and with UCI's cognitive science department.

Professor Frostig’s laboratory is located in the Department of Neurobiology and Behavior at McGaugh Hall on the UCI campus, and is part of a rich and diversified neuroscience research environment at UCI. Candidates should be highly motivated and have a recent Ph.D. degree in biomedical/bioengineering sciences. Experience in electrophysiology in addition to strong Matlab or Python programming experience is highly desirable. Qualified candidates should submit a curriculum vitae, a statement of research experience and interests, and names and contact information for three references to the following online recruitment URL:
