Post-Doctoral Fellow in Developmental Brain Science, NIH Fetal Brain Research Laboratory, Wayne State University, Michigan

Dr. Moriah Thomason in the Merrill Palmer Skillman Institute and Department of Pediatrics and Wayne State University, and the intramural NICHD/NIH/DHHS Perinatology Research Branch ( Perinatal Neural Connectivity Unit ( invites applications for a postdoctoral fellow position funded by a 5-year NIMH BRAINS R01 entitled, “In utero assessment of the human neural connectome and later child behavior”. This project uses MRI techniques to examine neural networks at the beginning of human life, and addresses how variation in network properties relate to child neurobehavioral development. We use a number of approaches, including fetal and neonatal MRI, mother-child dyadic observation, interviews, questionnaires, child EEG, actigraphy, and home visits to characterize both the environment and also individual development. The ultimate goal is to understand biological bases of neurodevelopmental disorders, and to better understand factors in the environment that increase or mitigate risk. Fellows may be funded for up to 4 years pending performance and grant support. The position is located at Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan.

Assistant/Associate Professor-Tenure System, Michigan State University

The Department of Pharmacology & Toxicology at Michigan State University seeks to fill two academic-year, tenure-system Assistant/Associate Professor positions. (Both positions are available at the Assistant or Associate Professor rank depending on qualifications and experience.) For one position, applicants with expertise in toxicology or a related research area are particularly encouraged to apply. For the other position, the ideal candidate will have expertise in one of the broad areas of current research in the department, including, but not limited to neuropharmacology, neurotoxicology, cardiovascular pharmacology, inflammation, cancer, and drug discovery. For both positions, mechanistic research that utilizes cutting-edge molecular methodology, e.g., gene editing and/or genetic manipulation by viral vectors, epigenetic analyses and single-cell approaches is highly desirable. Questions can be directed to Dr. Cheryl E. Rockwell, Search Committee Chairperson ( Application review will begin February 1, 2018 and continue until suitable candidates are identified.
