A funded postdoctoral fellow position is available for a collaborative project led by Dr. Ishibashi and Dr. Tu through the Center for Neuroscience Research at Children’s National Health System (CNHS) in Washington DC. The laboratory carries out basic and translational research using novel animal models to investigate the impact of Chronic Hypoxia on Fetal and Neonatal Brain Development.
The full-time research fellow will work on our collaborative and innovative studies. Tools for state-of-the-art imaging, together with cutting edge cellular/molecular and behavioral analyses, are available to address clinically relevant questions in neurodevelopment using preclinical animal model. Bruker 7T AVIII magnet with custom 90mm quadrature volume coil and Bruker 9.4 AVI vertical bore AVI system are available at the animal imaging core.
Please learn more about our collaborative research and preclinical animal models through the following selected publications:
