Established in 1930, Duke University School of Medicine is the youngest of the nation’s top medical schools. Ranked tenth among its peers, the School takes pride in being an inclusive community of outstanding learners, investigators, clinicians, and staff where traditional barriers are low, interdisciplinary collaboration is embraced, and great ideas accelerate translation of fundamental scientific discoveries to improve humanhealth locally and around the globe.
Comprised of 2,400 faculty physicians and researchers, the Duke University School of Medicine along with the Duke University School of Nursing and Duke University Health System create Duke Health. Duke Health is a world-class health care network.

Occ SummaryThe projects are aimed at dissecting the mechanisms underlying brain damage after ischemia and reperfusion injury. Experimental murine models of cardiac arrest and ischemic stroke will be studied. We use a wide spectrum of approaches, including biochemistry, immunology, molecular biology, genetically modified mouse models, and mouse behavior tests. Self-motivated individuals who have a PhD or MD degree and are currently in the US are encouraged to apply. The ideal candidates should have a strong background in molecular biology, immunology, or experimental neuroscience, must be creative and capable of working independently, and will be expected to work on several projects in parallel, analyze data, and write manuscripts. Experience in rodent behavioral testing and surgical procedures is highly desirable.
