Two complex, Trauma-related PathologiesPosted by: Postdoc positions by NIH
Posted date: 2019-Jun-14
HJF is seeking a Postdoctoral Fellow who will be involved in research activities that focus on two complex, trauma-related pathologies, highly relevant to the military; specifically, combat-related heterotopic ossification (HO) and traumatic brain injury (TBI). Research activities will be carried out at the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences (USU-Surgery) in Bethesda, MD. With supervisor’s guidance, the Post-Doctorate Fellow will have the opportunity to conduct independent research to dissect the mechanism of combat trauma-induced HO development, test novel early diagnostic tools for HO detection, and identify promising therapeutics to inhibit HO using a robust, well established rat model of HO developed by the research team. Traumatic brain injury research will focus on identification and characterization of TBI-specific biomarkers in a ferret model of TBI and utilize this model to assess the effects of aeromedical evacuation on brain injury. The goal of this research program is to improve outcomes associated with TBI and hemorrhagic shock, especially under the combat-relevant scenario of aeromedical evacuation, by utilizing early predictive biomarkers in TBI to guide therapeutic regimens. This position provides a high level of exposure to a wide variety of experimental models, as well as a unique opportunity to learn advanced aspects of fundamental basic biology of HO and TBI, preclinical research models and predictive data analysis. Must be flexible with work schedule and able to work some nights and weekends.
