A Neuroscience postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Ron Frostig. Our research program is focused on structure-function relationships in cerebral cortex and their plasticity. The specific projects for this position are centered on further investigations of our previous pre-clinical findings regarding how sensory stimulation can protect the cerebral cortex from impeding ischemic stroke. The studies are expected to enhance our understanding of novel interactions among spontaneous and evoked neuronal activity, blood flow, neurovascular interactions and ischemic cortical conditions, and therefore may have translational potential.
We employ multi-disciplinary Systems Neuroscience approaches, including high-resolution functional imaging, blood flow imaging techniques, neuronal recordings from microelectrode arrays, behavioral tests, and post-mortem histology. Some of the projects involve collaborations with researchers at the Beckman Laser Institute and at the Cognitive Sciences Department at UCI.
Our laboratory is located in McGaugh Hall on the UCI campus, in the Department of Neurobiology and Behavior and is part of a rich and diversified Neuroscience research environment at UCI.
Candidates should be highly motivated and have a recent PhD degree in biomedical/bioengineering sciences. Experience in electrophysiology and Matlab programming is desirable.
Qualified candidates should submit curriculum vitae, a statement of research experience and interests, and names and contact information for three references to the following on-line recruitment URL:
