Research Opportunities in HIV -Associated Neurological Disorders (NeuroAIDS)

HIV -1 infection causes a spectrum of neurological/cognitive complications (NeuroAIDS), but the pathogenic mechanisms are poorly understood. NeuroAIDS presents a huge opportunity for young scientists who are enthusiastic about a career development in the field of infectious diseases in the nervous system. We are soliciting applications for research positions in NIH -funded projects that focus on the molecular and cellular mechanisms of NeuroAIDS. We will concentrate on the synaptic, glial, and neural circuitry pathogenic processes that contribute to the development of NeuroAIDS, in particular the HIV -associated pathological pain. The applicants must have enthusiasm on the research field, and have a strong research background, as recorded by publications, in at least one of the following aspects: molecular biology, developmental biology, neurobiology, HIV -1 biology, microscopic/confocal imaging, or electrophysiology (especially patch clamp in the spinal cord). Interested candidates can email their CV to Dr. Shao-Jun Tang, Associate Professor, Department of Neuroscience and Cell Biology, University of Texas Medical Branch, Galveston, TX 77573. Email: shtang@utmb.edu . Candidates whom are selected for further considerations will be contacted.

    When applying for this position, please mention you saw this ad in the APS Postdoc Exchange.
